SLA, also known as resin 3D printing is a type of vat photopolymerisation that uses a light source most commonly a laser that solidifies liquid resin into hardened plastic.
Stereolithography (SLA)
SLA has become vastly popular for its ability to produce high-accuracy, isotropic and watertight prototypes and parts in a range of advanced materials with fine features and smooth surface finish.
Why choose Stereolithography?
SLA's parts have excellent surface finish and are ready for post-processing without any additional finishing or painting.
The SLA technology allows for the creation of complex geometries and functional parts, which are impossible to be made using traditional manufacturing methods.
Allows the creation of prototypes with outstanding mechanical properties such as toughness, heat resistance, flexible which simulates the end products.
Features of Stereolithography
Maximum build dimensions
1700 x 800 x 600 mm

**Dimensions are not restricted since final assembly can be made up of several sub components

**Factors such as design and material could affect the maximum printable dimensions
Standard tolerance
± 0.2 % (with a lower limit of ± 0.2 mm)
0.05 mm
Infill density
0 % - 100 %
Minimum wall thickness
1.0 mm
Minimum feature size
Standard lead time
Ideal application
0.5 mm
As fast as 5 business day
SLA is used for low volume production of complex geometrics, prototypes that need limited functional testing, sheet metal prototypes, and patterns for investment casting
