Formlabs Rigid 4000 3D Printer Resin

Choose Formlabs family of Rigid Resins when prototyping strong and stiff parts that need to resist bending. Parts made from these materials are thermally and chemically resistant and will be dimensionally stable under load, but will experience brittle failure if pushed to their limits.

Glass-filled Rigid 4000 Resin prints with a smooth, polished finish and is ideal for stiff and strong parts that can withstand minimal deflection. Consider Rigid 4000 Resin for general load-bearing applications.

  • Mounts and brackets
  • Thin-walled parts
  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Simulates stiffness of PEEK

The “4000” in the name represents the material’s tensile modulus. If you need a stiffer material, try Rigid 10K Resin.

*Layer height compatibility can depend on printer model.

NOTE: Rigid 4000 Resin decreases the lifetime of resin tanks. Read more about Resin Tank LT lifetime and Form 3 Resin Tank lifetime.

STORAGE  & Disposal

Formlabs materials require proper storage to maximize the usable lifetime. Light and temperature affect shelf life significantly. For optimal results, follow Formlabs guidelines for storing and handling resins. 

  • Use a different resin tank for each type of Formlabs resin. Cleaning the resin tank to change resins may lead to contamination and print failures.
  • To avoid contamination, do not pour resin back into cartridges.
  • Store resin according to the SDS, away from direct sunlight in a dry, cool, and well-ventilated area.
  • Shake resin containers approximately every two weeks when in storage to keep resins thoroughly mixed.
  • For long-term storage, pour resin into a separate, opaque container from the resin tank. Formlabs recommends wide-mouth opaque HDPE or polypropylene bottles. Containers made of other materials may leak.
  • Dispose of liquid resin (whether liquid, dissolved in IPA, or partially cured) and anything contaminated with liquid resin according to environmental regulations.
