Although SLA is the oldest form of 3D printing, and many other types of additive manufacturing now exist, this original technology is still used today. Advances in materials, software and hardware have kept Stereolithography an important technology within 3D printing industry. SL is still the best alternative for transparent parts, stiff parts and for parts with high tolerance requirement. The surface finish and a general feel of “plastic” is also best in SL parts. This is why Stereolitography is technology of choice for F1 industry for wind tunnel testing. With right material selection, SL offers a lot of value to mechanical designers in many industries.
