One of the oldest 3D printing technologies, Stereolithography is still one of the best prototyping options out there. You can print small, highly detailed parts on our Viper Si2 machines or use our iPro 9000 to produce large parts. Quick lead times and our staff’s attention to detail will put you days ahead of where you need to be.

 

How It Works

Using a 3D model, our Stereolithography machine and its operator mathematically create a series of cross-sections (layers) to guide the path of an ultraviolet laser. The laser then traces each layer across a vat of photo-curable liquid polymer, changing the liquid into a solid.  After each layer, a re-coating and leveling system establishes the thickness of the next layer.  The part is built layer by layer, until a three-dimensional part is formed.
