3D Printer Resin's Chemical Makeup?

  1. Jun 4, 2012 #1
    Does anyone know what compounds make up the resin used by resin type 3D printers?

    I need to know if it could possible react with some hexane, toluene, and other chemical solutions for sure, though I believe the resin to be fairly inert chemically.

    Thanks PF.
