Stereolithography (SLA) is often considered the pioneer of the Rapid Prototyping industry with the first commercial system introduced in 1988 by 3D Systems. The system consists of an Ultra-Violet Laser, a vat of photo-curable liquid resin, and a controlling system....

For several years rapid tools made using stereolithography (SL) technology have been tried for injection molding thermoplastic parts. Success has been very limited due to low strength, inadequate temperature resistance, and poor dimensional stability of SL resins. A new class of stereolithography...

This computer-generated animation demonstrates the actions of the SLA machine. The laser can be seen tracing each layer of the part, as the part is lowered into the resin. The completed part is then raised out of the resin tank, ready to be used....

Vesta Inc., a manufacturer of custom silicone medical devices based in Franklin, WI, has developed a prototyping process that can reduce prototype times by as much as 70% as compared with traditional methods. The Quick Response process is based on the company's ability to mold medical-grade liquid...

In the thirty years since stereolithography (SLA) arrived on the scene, 3D printing. capabilities have evolved from simple model and mold production to product manufacturing. Deciding whether, and how, to leverage and integrate 3d printing - also called additive manufacturing (AM) - with existing...

Stereolithography molds can be built quickly and with less expense than molds made by traditional methods. The process is similar to building stereolithography parts, but the mold is reinforced to withstand injection molding conditions for 50 or more cycles. Although they may not be as attractive...

Rapid Tooling Via Stereolithography Gets a Closer Look Industry roundtable reports initial findings. Direct Metal Laser Sintering and Tooling The applications, benefits and limitations of direct metal laser sintering for mold manufacture. Transforming plastic part designs into rapid prototypes...

...and discusses potential applications. The automated EFAB process creates metal structures by electroplating multiple, independently patterned layers. The process is similar in concept to rapid prototyping techniques, such as stereolithography, in that multiple patterned layers are stacked to build...

...processes involved are relatively slow. In fact, it can take hours or even days to build a part. The term arose because laser sintering, stereolithography, fused-deposition modeling, and other technologies build parts (thus rapidly), layer by layer from CAD...

SLA System Offers High-Performance in a Compact Size For improved solid imaging, a stereolithography apparatus (SLA) combines standard and high-resolution part building in a single unit. The Viper si2 from 3D Systems (Orsay, France) is suited for medical device applications because...
