Is the High temperature resin from Formlabs printable with SL1 ?
I would like to print the high temperature resin from Formlabs. 
Is that possible with the SL1, or is it only possible with laser DLP printers?

probably not, the form2 uses a more powerful light source!

My understanding is that you can usually print with resins made for laser printers if it is for a 405nm laser by increasing the exposure time.  However, on the page for this particular resin it states "Printing in High Temp Resin requires more laser power. Keep the prints small and move parts around the Build Platform, especially when printing at 25 microns."  So it appears that Formlabs own laser printer struggles with this particular resin.  I think any MSLA printer like the SL1 will have difficulty with this resin.

I read a recommendation to use the funtodo Industrial resin for the Anycubic Photon.  It it works for the Photon it will work for the SL1, and it is a high temperature resin.  Take a look and see if it meets your needs.
