Resin is now mainly used in 3D printing

What is resin anyway? Resin is usually a casting resin that is obtained from the drying of natural resins. Resin is used today primarily in 3D printing because it can be used to create very fine structures. Resin should not be confused with epoxy resin, which has similar properties but hardens itself. Resin requires UV light to really harden.
