Stereolitography that is, the SLA method is a 3D-print technique where the laser hardens the layers by means of using light-activated photopolimer resin. The advantages of this technique are more spectacular in the case of small-scale series. The surface of the spare parts produced is more even, the details can be presented better and at the same time the original design can be also double-checked. Due to the wide range of prime materials it is also eligible for functional testing up to a certain extent, but generally it is used for the printing of scale models, jigs, fixing tools, casting moulds, prototypes, dental models and other kinds of small-scale series.
The maximum size that can be printed by the industrial SLA-type plastic 3D printing technique is as follows:
2080mm x 680 mm x 780 mm
