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.
