In contrast, Stereolithography
relies on rapidly moving mirrors directing UV energy.
The fact that we were able to use stereolithography
for both mechanical design and also for a parallel industrial design was critical to our need for a rapid turnaround.
By adding stereolithography
to the "pit crew's" resources, Mattel decreased time-to-market by 20 percent, with a significant cost savings of $14,500 per prototype.
The resins used in stereolithography
are photosensitive thermosets that crosslink during the curing process, and are fundamentally different from the thermoplastics used in injection molding that they are designed to emulate.
The decision to reserve two systems solely for DMX ensures our ability to consistently deliver stereolithography
parts with sintered-like durability.
(SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS), and 3D printers, as well as own line of stereolithography
NanoForm 15120 from DSM Somos is a composite stereolithography
material that incorporates noncrystalline nanoparticle technology for enhanced performance properties, including those of exceptionally high stiffness and heat resistance.
Until recently, producing living hinge prototypes by stereolithography
was not possible.
The MIT group got the idea for this process in part from recent advances in stereolithography
, in which a computer-directed laser causes liquid plastic to solidify into a particular shape.
Newly Engineered Accura([R]) 48HTR Plastic for Stereolithography
Systems Withstands the Most Challenging Thermal Environments
An opaque white stereolithography
prototyping resin that simulates the look and feel of molded PP is new from 3D Systems Corp.
NanoForm 15120, the latest addition to the DSM Somos ProtoComposites product line, is a composite material reported to exhibit many properties similar to those of fused deposition materials and glass-filled polyamide sintering materials, with the accuracy and precision inherent in stereolithography
