BioBased60 resin is similar in mechanical properties to our Tough resins. BioBased60 offers the highest possible content of ingredients obtained from plant-based sources while maintaining exposure times and reliability during printing. We have created a resin with the highest proportion of renewable ingredients on the market which makes no compromises in the level of detail or speed! So, if you’re looking for a printing material that will deliver intricate objects with amazing levels of detail, BioBased60 is a great choice.
With Prusament Resin BioBased, you can produce prints with an amazing level of detail, which makes this material perfect for tiny and detailed action models, prototypes, and large project accessories. Cured material can be easily sanded, both dry and wet.
Short exposure time and the perfect level of detail make the MSLA technology ideal for small and detailed prototypes that can’t be produced with FFF/FDM printers. Plus, the overall MSLA printing time is shorter than with FFF/FDM.
Prusament Resin BioBased60 can be used for making both simple and more complex molds. You can either print a master model (you can make a mold from it) or you can print the mold itself, for example for casting silicone.

The resin BioBased60 got its name because we wanted to reflect the content of plant-based materials in the name. In other words: 60 % of BioBased60 composition is made up of ingredients derived from natural sources. To be a bit more exact and technical: Its acrylic monomers are produced from natural oils and terpenes, such as α-pinene obtained from pine trees (this gives the resin a nice pine-tree-like aroma). This is a major difference compared to conventional “Tough” resins because their ingredients are derived exclusively from petroleum-sourced products.
The resin still requires careful handling (and disposal) like any other resin, so keep that in mind.
Use a Hollowing function in PrusaSlicer to save a considerable amount of material. Don’t forget to create two holes so the resin can be poured out and to counter the vacuum effect during printing.
When post-processing tough resin, it’s possible to use both dry and wet sanding.
Prusament Resin is fully compatible with third-party MSLA 3D printers. However, it was tailor-made for the Original Prusa SL1S SPEED. In combination with SL1S, you’ll get astonishing speed without losing any print details! Thanks to the monochromatic display and fast tilt mechanism it’s possible to print with exposure as short as 1.6 – 2.4s per layer, depending on the object size and complexity! SL1S SPEED will help you make models with amazing details and much quicker than with other machines, FFF/FDM printers included!
Uncured resin leftovers should be disposed of with other dangerous chemicals at places designated for them. Liquid resin cannot be recycled and definitely should not end in general waste. The same rule applies to bottles, paper towels, and models stained with liquid (uncured) resin. However, cured resin (reactoplastic material) is, unlike filaments (thermoplastic material), a non-recyclable material – it belongs in the general waste.
Prusament Resin was created as a part of the project Photopolymer resins for 3D printing technology (FW01010650), financed with support from Technology Agency of the Czech Republic and Ministry of industry and trade, as a part of Program TREND.
