Stereolithography (SLA)

Why SLA?

SLA, the grandfather of 3D printing, produces exceptional models with an outstanding surface quality. Our industry-leading, large-bed NEO 800 printers give you the freedom to print complex designs and fine details in lightweight, robust resins.

Materials (click for basic data sheet)


A durable SLA material that produces highly detailed parts with an exceptionally smooth finish. Perfect for building end-use parts like jigs and fixtures, or prototypes for functional testing applications

DSM SOMOS WaterShed XC11122

A durable SLA material, tough enough for wind tunnel testing, that produces optically clear, highly detailed parts with a smooth finish. Has a very high water resistance, making it ideal for fluid flow analysis and duct work.

Taurus Somos


A quick building, durable resin with a high heat deflection temperature of 95ºC, high impact resistance and the mechanical performance of ABS.
