This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.
If you’ve managed to pick up one of the best 3D printer deals this Prime Day, there’s a good chance it uses UV resin to 3D print the model. Resin can be expensive, so when Amazon unleashes a second Prime Day event, as it’s doing right now, it’s worth checking it out for some discounts.
Resin comes in a lot of different types, and each one has different properties that can drastically change the type of model you produce. Siraya Tech, my favorite resin company, has something on sale for every scenario.
The best thing about Siraya Tech resins is that almost all of them are mixable. You can take some of the Fast or Easy and add a touch of BLU to it to increase its impact resistance. Or you could use Tenacious to make the object a little bit springy so it won’t shatter when you drop it.
That means you can buy the wonderfully cheap resin in bulk and one bottle of the more expensive stuff — especially today while BLU is $10 off — and make loads of amazing models like the water lion in the photo above. Kijai Design on My Mini Factory designed it, and it’s one of my favorite prints ever.
