About Project

Are you looking for a way to protect your sensitive electronics from static discharge? Do you need a custom-made cover that fits your specific design and requirements? If so, you might be interested in this SLA 3D-printed Formlabs ESD Resin Electronics Cover.

This cover is made from Formlabs ESD Resin, a static-dissipative material that safely dissipates static buildup that can damage electronic components. ESD Resin has a surface resistivity of 10 5 – 10 8 Ohms/sq, which means it is more conductive than other Formlabs resins and allows electric charges to flow in a controlled manner. ESD Resin also has high toughness, impact strength, and heat resistance, making it ideal for producing robust custom parts that comply with ESD safety standards.

The cover has a simple rectangular shape with rounded corners and edges. It has letters “ESD” printed on the bottom inside to indicate the material type. There are two grooves, one on each shorter side, that allow the cover to be easily attached and detached from the base. And there are four small pillars in each corner that provide support and stability for the cover. The cover measures 100 x 50 x 20 mm and weighs 30 grams.

We don’t know what this cover is used for, but considering the material’s properties, it should be a cover for some kind of electronic device that needs protection from static discharge. Maybe it is a circuit board, a sensor, a controller, or something else. Whatever it is, we are sure that this cover will do its job well.

Solution

  • Step 1: A 3D model of the cover was designed using CAD software and exported in a 3D printable file format (STL or OBJ).
  • Step 2: The 3D model was imported into a 3D slicer software that converted it into a series of thin layers and generated a set of instructions for the SLA 3D printer.
  • Step 3: The SLA 3D printer used a bottom-up method, where the build platform was lowered into a resin tank filled with Formlabs ESD Resin, a static-dissipative material.
  • Step 4: A UV laser beam was directed by two mirrors (galvanometers) on the X and Y axes to selectively cure the resin on the bottom of the tank, forming the first layer of the cover.
  • Step 5: The build platform was lifted slightly to allow a thin layer of resin to flow beneath it, and then lowered back to the previous position.
  • Step 6: The process was repeated until the entire cover was completed, with each layer being bonded to the previous one.
  • Step 7: The cover was then detached from the build platform and transferred to a post-processing station, where it was washed with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to remove any excess resin.
  • Step 8: The cover was then cured in a UV chamber to enhance its mechanical properties and finalize polymerization.
  • Step 9: The cover was then inspected for quality and accuracy, and any support structures were removed using tools such as pliers or cutters.
