When designing for demanding tolerances, the time and effort put into CNC machining setup, workloading, and programming gets labor intensive and expensive. Engineers and designers are able to achieve equally demanding tolerances using Laser-based stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing. Formlabs SLA printers create high-resolution parts at a fraction of the cost and footprint of industrial 3D printers.

In any product design or engineering workflow, it is essential to understand material options to get the most value out of 3D printing. In this webinar, Kevin Gautier, Channel Application Engineer at Formlabs, will walk through the SLA 3D printing process from initial concept in CAD to finished physical part and explain SLA material properties.

What you will learn:

  • How to prepare a design with demanding tolerances and 3D print a model
  • How to use engineering materials and their respective applications for SLA printing
  • Overview of SLA printing technology and how it provides high accuracy, precision, and tight tolerances
