Abstract: The use of Rapid Prototyping (RP) techniques for the production of end-use parts is increasing to a stage where Rapid Manufacturing is being undertaken. This paper documents significant initial investigations into the properties of Accura SI40 and SL7560 resins which represent two state of the art stereolithography resins that are aimed at end-use part manufacture. This information has previously been unavailable and is vital for their consideration in end-use part manufacture. The impact of various levels of post curing (ultraviolet and thermal) on the tensile, flexural and impact properties are investigated and correlated with differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis. The isotropy/anisotropy nature of the two materials and also the effect of the notch creation method on the impact resistance were also studied.
