Photopolymer 3D printing offers unique benefits to consumer technology products manufacturers through a combination of part accuracy, surface finish, and speed. Despite a long history as a champion technology for prototyping, constraints of traditional photopolymer materials limited their use to a select range of applications. New advances in materials science are expanding the applications and Additive Manufacturing benefits for 3D Systems’ photopolymer technologies – stereolithography (SLA) and the projection-based Figure 4® platform – to true end-use performance, with new production-grade materials with long-term stability.
