The SLA® process uses a UV laser to photo-cure a variety of epoxy-based resins to "grow" 3D objects layer-by-layer from 3D electronic data (STL files). Because it is an additive process highly complex geometries can be built with assistance from support structures that are easily removed without adverse effect. The key advantage of SLA® is its ability to rapidly produce highly-detailed models with exceptional aesthetic qualities.
Fine detail and smooth surface finishing
Accuracy within thousandths of an inch
Variety of resins ranging in rigidity, detail, color, clarity and temperature tolerance
Capable of light-duty function and service as short-run low-temp tooling
Can be painted and finished for presentation, demonstration and photo reproduction
Delivery of most parts usually in just a few working days
