The Stereolithography (SLA) process addresses the widest range of rapid manufacturing applications. SLA utilizes a vat of liquid photopolymer resin cured by an Ultra Violet (UV) laser to solidify the pattern layer by layer to create a solid 3D model from the 3D data provided
Capable of producing highly durable and complex geometries in Nylon for real-world testing while other additive manufacturing methods may become brittle over time. Ideal for snap fits and living hinges.
Fast and cost effective process for proving designs, fit and function testing, small production runs, jigs, and fixtures. Allowing parts to be made direct from 3D CAD to thermoplastic materials without tooling.
Full color concept models with quick production times. Whether printed with color or in standard white, parts can be additionally clear coated to add a hard, smooth coating or wax coated to smooth out the surface finish.
Rapid production of small to large 3D printed casting patterns in both SLA QuickCast and wax materials. With perfect surface finishes these patterns drop seamlessly into the investment casting workflow.
