Monocure 3D is Australia's top premium resin brand. In the past two years, our customer base has rapidly grown worldwide, especially right here in the US. So, in 2020, we saw the need to expand our operations to better serve our customers in the States, by establishing Monocure 3D USA.
With local inventory and local support, we hope to offer a better experience for the 3D printing community here. We’re now able to offer the chance to shop in USD, rather than AUD, as well as cheaper and faster shipping and no import duties or fees.
Established in 1979 in Sydney, Australia, Monocure 3D initially produced inks based on a unique UV curable water-based resin system. The knowledge and experience this background provided allowed our team – led by owner Charlie Anderson - to create new world class SLA & DLP 3D resin.
Our cured resin has amazing characteristics, such as smoothness, high tensile strength and its non-yellowing properties. Our prices are competitive due to the high volume of resins we now produce, and we are at the forefront of UV technology in Australia. With a team of five research chemists and versatile production facilities, we’re able to assist customers with most requirements.
We know once you try Monocure 3D resins, they’ll become your resin-of-choice. We look forward to welcoming you to the Monocure 3D digital community.
Who is Charlie Anderson? In a previous life, Charlie worked in the TV industry in Australia and abroad for over 20 years. He started working at Monocure 5 years ago, when his father, Alan, asked him to join the family industrial chemical business. A far cry from the TV directors chair, but he was ready for a new challenge!
Charlie's interest in 3D printing started by accident when he got an enquiry about a UV(Ultra Violet) curing resin for a new type of desktop 3D printer. He worked with Monocure’s Research and Development team to create Australia's first UV curable 3D printer resin! Monocure 3D was born. Charlie got busy building an e-commerce website and creating interest in the new resin by using social media as a direct line to his customers. As the word spread and desktop 3D resin printers became more mainstream, Monocure 3D started to ramp up!
While working with his dedicated team, Charlie has been adding complementary products to the range and expanding into other areas of the 3D printing market. His involvement and interest in the 3D printing industry are robust, as he continues to help and support his customers. Charlie believes that the 3D printing industry is still in its infancy. Through support like beginners guides, white papers, articles, newsletters, school holiday courses and his new Youtube channel, ProTips, Charlie knows the importance of education. “If we can teach people how to use this technology today, the amount of industries that can benefit in the future is nearly limitless!” says Charlie.
Monocure 3D now enjoys a strong customer base locally and overseas with over 50 resellers worldwide. “The Australian market is growing as we Aussies love new technology! I know that every school, university & business will adopt 3D printing. Most households will have at least one 3D printer in the not too distant future!”
John’s background is in development of both software and hardware within the computer & machining industry. In a previous life, John was an IT support manager for a major software development company for over 25 years. He has run his own business designing and building camera stabilization systems using his own CNC router, laser cutter and 3D printers (Grouse House Technologies). More recently, he has been using resin based 3D printers in conjunction with FDM printers to assist him with his projects. He has a considerable understanding of the technologies which go into all 3D printers.
