SLA 3D PRINTING

Stereolithography (SLA) is great for concept models, rapid prototypes, master patterns, snap fit assemblies and form and fit testing.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

We use Formlabs machinery for our SLA (Stereolithography) production. These top of the range industrial 3D printers are designed for controlled, consistent production of end-use parts. Using resin-based material, these machines use the latest in environment control to ensure maximum dimensional stability (± 0.20%) and accuracy (lower limit ± 0.2 mm). 

Combined with our knowledge and advanced finishing techniques, we use the Form series machines to produce the best quality SLA 3D prints on the market. See our material properties below or download a data sheet.

SLA 3D PRINTING BENEFITS

ACCURATE

Parts are produced to a dimensional accuracy of ± 0.1% with a lower limit of ± 0.075 mm

SOLID PARTS

Parts are printed solid by default, excellent for retaining liquids & ensuring maximum strength 

SMOOTH

Surfaces are smooth, due to minimal layer heights. Great for simulating moulded parts

ISOTROPIC

Identical & consistent material properties in all given directions at every given point (x, y, z axis) 

SMALL DETAILS

Features as small as 0.1mm can be successfully printed using SLA, perfect for small parts

SLA FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Stereolithography (SLA) uses a light source, usually a laser to cure liquid photopolymer resin into solid parts.

Stereolithography (SLA) is great for concept models, rapid prototypes, master patterns, snap fit assemblies and form and fit testing.

Parts with overhangs greater than 45 degrees will require support material. Our technicians will assess your parts and add this in automatically when programming your order.

Due to the nature of the photopolymer resins we are limited by colours of that’s available. We also offer media blasting and professional spray painting services. 

All of our SLA materials can be easily hand finished. 

Unfortunately none of our SLA materials are food safe. 

You can specify when placing our order your desired orientation using our order messaging system, otherwise our technical team will automatically orientate your part for you.

To reduce your part costs there are a number of options available; reduce the quality, reduce the infill, scale down the part, reduce the part thickness and shell the part if solid.
