Carbon DLS is a resin-based polymer process that uses light and heat to create parts with isotropic properties, complex geometries, and excellent surface finishes. DLS offers a wide range of production-grade materials, allowing engineers to build end-use parts right off the printer. Fast Radius’ Chicago factory is the largest public install-base of Carbon technology in North America.
We are certified in Design for Carbon, as well as in all of the materials we provide.

Common Carbon DLS Applications
DLS is often used for end-use parts because it produces high tolerances and smooth surface finishes. The speed of the DLS process makes it attractive for rapid prototyping as well.
High-volume production runs
Cost-effective and quick production of small parts.
Durable prototypes suitable for testing in real-world conditions.
Process allows geometries that would be impossible with other methods.
Elastomeric lattice design enables custom mechanical responses.
Chemical and heat resistant parts
Materials that meet many functional and regulatory requirements.
