What Is SLA 3D Printing?
SLA additive manufacturing, also called stereolithography, is a 3D printing method that uses a thermoset liquid resin base material that is activated and hardened by the application of a laser in the required form for each layer. As one layer is finished, a new layer of liquid resin is applied to the layer, and the process is repeated to form the part.
SLA 3D printing service typically requires support structures to be created first, which are then removed once the piece is completed. At this stage, SLA parts are finished with solvents to remove any additional non-required resin and cured a final time via UV application.
SLA printing differs from selective leaser sintering, or SLS printing, which uses a laser to sinter powdered material into a shape. Although SLS printing creates a stronger finished product, it doesn’t offer the same aesthetic appeal as SLA printed items do.
