Stereolithography is known as the original 3D printing process for producing rapid prototypes and show models since 1989. This process (commonly referred to as SLA) utilizes a UV laser that cures parts one layer at a time in a photo-reactive epoxy resin. Widely regarded as one of the most accurate of the additive technologies, the Stereolithography 3D printing process is a popular choice amongst engineers looking for fine detailed, small featured parts as well as extraordinarily large components.
- High resolution parts
- Fine features from a precise spot beam UV laser
- Large, seamless parts that can be bonded together with UV light reactive resins
- Presentation models
- Architectural models
- General use prototypes
High stiffness, good detail, affordable. PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic for low-cost, non-functional prototyping. Greater detail than ABS, but more brittle. Unsuitable for high temperatures.
XC Watershed is a low viscosity liquid photopolymer that produces strong, tough, water-resistant parts. Most importantly parts created with 11122 XC Watershed are nearly colorless and look more like true, clear engineered plastic.
