This stuff is SCORCERY!

it is ridiculous how strong this stuff is! I only make minis and statues but the quality and strength that this resin has is truly phenomenal! I could see this becoming the staple for engineering high wear and tear pieces, I still need to experiment with it a bit but its great stuff!

Bruce Goorney
Printing on Saturn 2

The settings provided need a little ‘translating’ to work with the Chitubox slicing software. It would be very helpful if the settings notes were clearer!
Also, it would be very useful to provide settings for 0.02” thickness building, or at least, how to adjust settings to achieve greater detail in prints

Clinton Rocksmith
The BEST resin we have used

We have bought all the different types of Resin and we just love this stuff. The finish and feel is amazing and when you hold it in your hand it feels like a production quality finish. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Try it you won’t be disappointed.

Cameron REELEY
A great product

Tensile is my current go to resin for everything. I just wish it was a bit cheaper and a nicer shade of grey like the pro model grey.

It is verry good for model trains.

Our team is focused on developing easy-to-use, high-quality, affordable 3D printing resins. Rather than purchasing ready-made materials and simply blending them, all our products are developed from the ground up. We know that 3D printing hobbyists, designers & engineers are searching for different material properties for many applications. Formulating our resins from scratch allows us to create unique products that can be customised to create products to suit most requirements.  By backing our campaign, you’ll gain early access to this development-breakthrough material and play a role in shaping the future of 3D printer material technology.

TENSILE™ Resin Properties

The Chemists at Monocure 3D have been working to create the “World’s Strongest 3D Printing Resin”. Tensile strength refers to the maximum stress a material can withstand while being stretched or pulled before failing or breaking. There are many benefits to high-tensile strength 3D printing resins, as it results in parts that can withstand greater mechanical stress without deformation or breakage, thus enhancing their printability, durability and performance.

Technical Data Sheet

Independent Testing

Monocure 3D TENSILE resin is a unique blend of advanced urethanes & Epoxies. It was specifically developed to produce a 3D-printed model with high tensile strength and long-life durability. These properties provide the right balance of fine detail, strength, flexibility and a hard surface finish.

We recommend using TENSILE™ resin if you intend to 3D print models that you want to remain rigid and hard yet withstand stress and strain without being brittle. Once post-cured, it can be machined, painted or polished for further finishing.

TENSILE™ has a low-odour formula for confined spaces such as home offices, garages and family living spaces.

Post Cured Vs Green Strength

TENSILE™ resin is engineered to enhance your 3D  printing capabilities thanks to its remarkable green strength during printing. This material offers significant advantages in terms of dimensional accuracy and print success rate. The exceptional green strength of this resin allows for printing intricate parts with high precision, now making it possible to print those difficult designs by taking advantage of the capabilities of this resin.

Suitable for a variety of Industries

TENSILE™ can be your go-to resin for various applications, from intricate miniature models and prototypes to functional parts and assemblies. With help from its exceptional green strength, your prints maintain dimensional stability & structural integrity as they can withstand the stresses and strains caused by the bottom-up printing process. The finished parts promise to be highly accurate, extremely strong, long-lasting and consistent.

Perfect 3D Printed Models

The properties of resins and 3D-printed parts are the optimal way to determine their suitability for specific applications.  You must carefully consider factors such as stress, temperature, and chemical exposure to select the appropriate resin that meets the required performance criteria.


We put TENSILE™ to the test by sponsoring the Strongest Human Competition in Broke, New South Wales, Australia. The TENSILE™ link was printed on a standard desktop MSLA printer using a 50-micron layer height. The model was post-cured using a conventional 50 Watt 405nm post-cure-Unit. In the video below, Rob pulls a 5-Tonne Semi-Trailer with our TENSILE™ resin taking the strain!

Impressively (but not surprisingly), the TENSILE™ link stood up to multiple “truck-pulls” without failure. The slightly bruised model is proudly displayed at our headquarters in Sydney, Australia.

Disclaimer: While we have tested the strength and capabilities of this specific link style and type, including lifting a 912kg concrete block using a forklift in a controlled environment, it is important to note that this demonstration was conducted by professionals under strict safety measures. We strongly advise against attempting similar activities or using this product in ways that may harm yourself or others. Always prioritise personal safety and follow appropriate guidelines and regulations when working with materials or engaging in potentially dangerous activities.

For best results after printing, use ResinAway® to remove uncured resin from the part. Place part in a pre-wash bath filled with ResinAway® and use a soft brush to remove excess resin. Follow by placing the component into an ultrasonic cleaner with ResinAway® for 3-5mins to help remove the resin trapped in the finer detail.
Ensure parts are dry by using compressed air or patting gently with a lint-free cloth before post-curing – Warning: leaving excess IPA or ResinAway® on parts might result in surface cracking.
TENSILE™ requires post-curing to reach its optimal mechanical properties. We recommend using a 405nm LED Ultraviolet light to post-cure the model. It is recommended to post-cure for a few minutes, then remove the excess ResinAway by washing with fresh water. Then place it back in the curing chamber for at least 30 mins to improve the tensile strength of the resin. (2 hours will further enhance the mechanical properties. These properties will also increase over a few days).
When exposing a part to external elements, apply paint to the surface to improve longevity. Alternatively, the components can be machined, sanded and polished to create a tough, scratch-resistant surface.
