From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


  • SLA or Stereolithography is a form of 3D Printing that uses light curable resin and a controlled light source to make 3D objects
  • It can acheive very high precision and resolution due to the light source used (typically a laser and optics setup or a DLP projector


  • Resolution

  • Diversity of Optical Properties Acheivable with Resin


  • Complexity of Device
  • Complexity of Input Materials/Consumables
  • Complexity of Workflow
  • Mess Generated by Workflow
  • Enviroment Required
  • Cost of Device
  • Cost of Consumables/Input Materials
