Stereolithography

Find finished product realism in your prototypes

Stereolithography

Stereolithography (also known as SL or SLA) builds parts layer-by-layer using a UV laser to solidify liquid photopolymer resins. It is commonly used to produce concept models, master patterns, large prototypes and investment casting patterns.

Investment Casting Patterns

Successful investment casting depends on consistent, high quality patterns. We have developed a proprietary photopolymer to produce accurate, strong, and consistent patterns with high yield. We also offer five different finishing options for investment casting patterns to match to each foundry’s specifications. Our patterns are fully drained, completely sealed, and significantly lighter than ordinary patterns which ensure a more complete burnout.
