Earlier this year, Prusa acquired Futur3D, a Czech company specialising in resin printing, and expanded its team to 320 people. It now aims to develop open-source resin based 3D printers starting with SL1 – this will add to the FDM/FFF range of systems already available. FFF/FDM technology is based on forcing out molten thermoplastic material (filaments). Whereas, SLA is based on transforming liquid materials to solid parts, layer by layer, by curing them by using a light source in a process known as photopolymerization.
