The market for 3D printer resin is, perhaps unsurprisingly, far smaller than the one for 3D printer filament. However, there is still a number of manufacturers that offer 3D printer resin made in the EU.
With Anycubic’s release of their new series of Photon Mono resin printers, I started looking for 3D printer resin to buy in preparation. For similar reasons as I had stated in my 3D printer filament article, I wanted to buy resin that was made within the EU. And again, despite being made in the EU and under EU law, there is a bunch of resins available that aren’t too expensive either.

Price per liter varies wildly, and the more exotic resins cost an arm and a leg. But the standard resins price comparably to ones made outside the EU.
My printer hasn’t arrived yet, so I can’t make any recommendations regarding the quality. However, I’ll probably get the value pack by DruckWege and see how it goes.
