Water washable printing resin

Full Spectrum Laser have announced that Water Washable Resin is now available for sale. Water Washable Resin is a 3D printing photopolymer with a highly attractive crystal clear finish and great mechanical properties, for which excess resin can be dissolved simply by rinsing.
In contrast to most other resins, the Water Washable Resin requires absolutely no volatile organic chemicals (VOC's) for dissolution of uncured material, which are potentially harmful to humans, pets, and the environment.
Water Washable Resin is designed to be compatible with FSL's full range of stereolithography (SLA) and digital light projector (DLP) 3D printers, including the Phoenix and Pegasus product lines. Printing with Water Washable Resin is the same as printing with any other FSL resin, and requires no additional expertise. Dissolving excess resin in water is simple and straightforward, requiring only a short period of rinsing or soaking.
