In this work, a method for creating radioactive sources using additive manufacturing is considered. The work includes an overview of the theories and practice of stereolithographic printing as well as an in-depth study of the materials and manufacture of radioactive sources using standard and elastic resins. Various mixing techniques are used and compared. A number of tests were conducted to determine the homogeneity and radiological properties of the mixed resins.
