Stereolithography

Selective Laser Sintering

Stereolithography

SLA Is a laser based additive 3D printing process


Widely regarded as one of the more accurate additive technologies, SLA is commonly used amongst designers and engineers looking for fine detailed, small featured parts.

The process builds parts with a precise UV laser to cure and solidify thin layers of a photo-reactive resin.  Once completed, support structures are removed and parts are hand finished to create a smooth surface finish.

GoProto’s finishing service enables us to add paint, metalising and texture to SLA parts to create highly-cosmetic show models.

Ideal applications for Stereolithography:

CAVEATS: not for production or structural fallibility

SLA Accura 25


MATERIALS:

ACCURA 25 || NATURAL (OFF WHITE): Produces prototypes that are ideally suited for design verification, clip fitment and limited functional testing. Simulates the properties and aesthetics of polypropylene and ABS. (Spec sheet)

ACCURA XTREME WHITE || WHITE: Ultra tough white plastic to replace CNC machined polypropylene and ABS parts. (Spec sheet)

ACCURA 60 || CLEAR : Clear SLA plastic for producing rigid parts for bottles, lenses and headlamps. (Spec sheet)

SOMOS 11122 || CLEAR: Is a low viscosity liquid photopolymer that produces strong, tough, water-resistant, ABS-like parts. Most importantly, parts created with Somos® WaterShed XC 11122 are nearly colorless, and look more like true, clear engineered plastic. (Spec sheet)

NEXT || WHITE: This material is ideal for the production of tough, complex parts that also exhibit excellent moisture and thermal resistance. (Spec sheet)


“I was wowed by your parts. Gave us a true assessment of our design both in wet and dry scenarios. Look forward to seeing pre-production parts.” — Cathy Hamill, Design Engineer – Newcastle, NSW
