SLA 3D Printing Services
Stereolithography (SLA) is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces extremely accurate and high resolution parts that are capable of being used directly in end-use, low-volume production, or for rapid prototyping. It offers higher resolution printing than many other 3D printing technologies, allowing customers to print parts with fine details and surface finishes.
Advantages of SLA with Xometry
We can quickly produce both prototypes and large batches thanks to the largest manufacturing network in Europe, with over 2,000 vetted partners
You will get your 3D printing fast delivered in as fast as 3-5 days.
We have strong QA procedures, controlled by an in-house team of QA engineers, which allows us to deliver high quality parts.
Engineering Check & Status Updates
All designs are checked by engineers before they’re sent for 3D printing. After confirming your order, you will receive status updates on your production.

Pros & Cons of SLA 3D Printing
|Smooth surface finish||Only resin / polymer materials|
|Can print clear/ transparent parts||Structural strength is normally lower than with SLS, MJF, or FDM|
|High precision||Limited resistance to UV light if you use resin as the printing material|
|Fast: Xometry can deliver them in just 5 days||More expensive setup => more expensive smaller series|
|Requires support elements|
