What is SLA?

Produce smooth highly detailed parts

SLA (Stereolithography) uses a UV laser which selectively cures resin layer-by-layer, causing the resin to harden and cure into a green state. Once the print has finished in order to fully cure the resin the part requires a washing and curing process. After the part has been cured the bonds are complete are you are left with a solid plastic part perfect for being used for prototyping or even creating end-use parts.

What is SLS?

Produce complex geometries with no support

SLS (Select Laser Sintering) uses a laser which selectively sinters a powder layer-by-layer, causing the powder to fuse together creating strong bonds creating solid, robust parts. Surrounding powder in the build chamber supports parts as they are built layer by layer offering creative freedom with your parts. After the printing process, post-processing is required. Using the Fuse Sift extract and clean up your parts ready for end-use applications, functional parts and prototyping.
