SLA

SLA (Stereolithography) uses a laser to create parts in a pool of UV curable resin by selectively solidifying the desired layer on an inverted platform. The laser can be focused very finely, so this method can produce an exceptional surface finish, but at a lower strength than parts made with FDM. It should be considered during the design phase of any project utilizing SLA that any parts made with this process will be broken down by UV light over time. SLA is ideal for producing high-resolution parts with a limited lifetime and mechanical loads.

Benefits
  • Excellent resolution
  • Great surface finish
Challenges
  • Limited strength
  • UV degrades parts over time
