How it Works: Stereolithography

Stereolithography (often called SLA or SL) may be one of the oldest 3D printing technologies, but it is still empowering designers and engineers to prototype faster and get to market sooner. It is one of the fastest and accurate rapid prototyping processes used in the manufacturing industry.

Watch our video to learn:
  • How it uses lasers to create intricate parts
  • Common SL applications
  • Support removal and curing
  • What finishing processes are compatible with SL
Hear firsthand from Stratasys Direct Manufacturing experts why they’re excited about Stereolithography and why it is a valuable rapid prototyping tool.

“It’s really exciting that kids are going to be designing things just because I can make it like this, rather than this is the way I’m supposed to make it.”
