Hence, the mechanical stereolithography
models we produced gave us the parts we needed and were as close to actual molded components as we could possibly get.

3D Systems Tech Center also provides services to convert CAD drawings to 3D solid CAD and provides stereolithography
test models, prototypes, and investment casting services.
Also known as vat photopolymerization, Stereolithography
3D prints designs within a bed of liquid plastic.
Founded in 2007, DWS is the only Italian company capable of developing stereolithography
systems, which can quickly and precisely make 3D items in a variety of materials.
The biofabrication technology, called dynamic optical projection stereolithography
(DOPsL), was developed in the laboratory of NanoEngineering Professor Shaochen Chen.
This top of the line printer can produce parts in 16 micron layers in multiple durometers or digital blends for outstanding detail and eliminate the traditional stair effect that is problematic with Stereolithography
. For a wide range of applications 8 FullCure resins are available in both rigid and soft varieties.
With the 3D scanning service it can scan the old parts to produce CAD data so that it can be used to produce new or modified parts through stereolithography
, selective laser sintering, polyurethane or metal casting.
Protogenic, based in Westminster, CO, specializes in stereolithography
models and RTV molded cast urethanes; direct-print Shore A and Shore D Eden PolyJet parts; as well as direct-manufactured nylon using laser sintering.
Since 1982, when Chuck Hull invented stereolithography
(figure1), have been developed many methods of rapid prototyping by material accretion, which involve building a part by defining its geometry layer by layer, but between the main methods may be mentioned as follows: stereolithography
, selective laser-sintering, laminated object manufacturing, fused deposition modeling (Ciucescu & Bontas, 1998).
Building on their patented clear resin technology, DSM Somos recently announced the commercial availability of WaterClear[R] Ultra, a highly clear, colorless stereolithography
