Available materials for SLA
Below is a list of our standard materials for SLA 3D printing. To instantly compare material prices, upload your parts to our online platform.
|Standard resin||High-detail resin that produces parts with a smooth, injection mold-like surface finish. It is brittle and used for non-functional parts.|
|Clear resin||Has a semi-transparent appearance|
|Tough resin (ABS-like)||Has properties of ABS and produces parts with improved mechanical properties compared to standard resin. Can be used for functional parts.|
|Durable resin (PP-like)||Semi-flexible, ideal for snap fit assemblies and high-detail durable prototypes.|
|Rubber-like resin||Rubber-like feel and shore hardness < 70A that can be compressed and bent. Lacks the performance of true rubber.|
|Heat-resistant resin||Has high stiffness and excellent temperature resistance.|
|Castable resin||High-detail resin used to produces patterns for investment casting. They burn out cleanly with no ash or residue.|
Our SLA manufacturing standards
We manufacture your parts according to strict manufacturing standards. A verification of these requirements is included in our inspection report that is shipped with every order.
- A dimensional accuracy of ± 0.5% with a lower limit of ± 0.15 mm (± 0.006")
- Parts are fully cured to material manufacturer specifications before shipping.
- Hollow sections must be drained of excess resin.
- All support material is removed and support nibs must are sanded smooth.
