Stereolithography is the oldest 3D printing technology. More than 70% of the time our clients select SLA for their technology of choice.
5 Steps in the Basic Printing Process:
All our SLA processes run at .006 inch layers. Our customers have found that this is the best solution for details and grow time.
Orders usually ship within two to four business days from the time of order. Large parts, secondary operations, and current backlog can take longer.
Yes, stereolithography (SLA) models can be drilled, reamed, milled, or put on a lathe depending on the geometry.
Typical tolerances on our SLA models are about +/- 0.005 for the 1st inch and .0005 each additional inch. Part geometry and build orientation can also have an effect on tolerances.
Yes, it can be painted in a matched color with different finishes and textures. See the finish and option tabs for what is available.
As per the process there are grow lines from the layering required to build the part. Alternative textures and finishes can be applied through secondary operations. Click on the finish and options tabs to get more information.
The Somos XC11122 is rigid like a polycarbonate, the Somos Evolve is a little more flexible than ABS but not as much as Polypropylene.
SLA resins properties have improved greatly over the years and are coming closer to ABS properties. Click on the materials Tab and you can get the physical properties of these materials to compare.
The SLA process can only print parts with the color of the resin used. Secondary operatons can be used to apply surface colors as desired.
The Somos XC11122 is clear with a slight blue tint to it.
