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

Massive Capacity

Massive Capacity

We can quickly produce both prototypes and large batches thanks to the largest manufacturing network in Europe, with over 2,000 vetted partners

Fast Production

Fast Production

You will get your 3D printing fast delivered in as fast as 3-5 days.

Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance

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

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.

SLA 3D Printing Materials

Polymers
  • ABS SL 7820 (Black)
  • PC heat (Translucent Amber)
  • True Silicone
  • Watershed XC 11122 ABS/PBT-like (Transparent)
  • Xtreme Grey Polypropylene/ ABS-like (Grey)
  • Xtreme White 200 Polypropylene/ ABS-like (White)

SLA 3D Printing Finishing Options

Standard

The support material is removed and the parts are cleaned.

Custom finish

Additional processing and finishes on request.

Pros & Cons of SLA 3D Printing

Advantages Considerations
Smooth surface finish Only resin / polymer materials
Can print clear/ transparent parts Limited resistance to UV light if you use resin as the printing material
High precision More expensive setup => more expensive smaller series
Fast: Xometry can deliver them in just 5 days Requires support elements

Build volume up to 736 x 635 x 533 mm up to 380 x 284 x 380 mm, while we normally recommend the maximum size of 356 x 280 x 356 mm up to 340 x 340 x 605 mm, but usually, we recommend the maximum size of 320 x 320 x 580 mm up to 914 x 610 x 914 mm up to 119 x 189 x 300 mm. Recommended size: Within 100 x 100 x 150 mm 250 x 250 x 325 mm up to 490 mm x 391 mm x 200 mm
Layer thickness min 0.02 ~0.08 mm ~0.1 mm and for water-tight parts 1.5 mm, when wall thickness is higher ~0.05-0.3 mm ~0.1 mm 0.02 – 0.08 mm depending on the material 0.004 mm
Minimum feature size 0.1 mm min 0.5 mm, 0.7 is recommended min 0.5 mm, 0.75 is recommended up to 0.2 mm min 1 mm is recommended 0.75 mm for cosmetic features, 1.5 mm for structural features 1.2 mm or greater for rigid. 2 mm or greater for rubber-like
Tolerance ±0.2% (± 0.2 mm) ±0.3% (± 0.2 mm) ±0.3% (± 0.3 mm) ±0.3% (± 0.3 mm) ±0.1% (± 0.1 mm). However, tolerances are not guaranteed on the first attempt at a new design. ±0.2% (±0.1 – 0.2 mm) ±0.1 mm for the first dozens of mm is typical, plus ±0.05 mm for every mm thereafter
Description A technology that produces extremely accurate and high-resolution parts A technology that produces highly accurate and durable parts at fast speeds, especially compared to other powder bed fusion technologies One of the most popular and inexpensive technologies for industrial 3D printing Widely known for a great material selection, accuracy, and possibility to print large parts. A breakthrough technology that uses digital light projection, programmable liquid resins, and oxygen-permeable optics to produce parts with exceptional durability, resolution, and surface finish Metal 3D printing technology. Selectively fuses a fine metal powder in aluminium or stainless steel Polyjet is a rigid photopolymer 3D printing technology that produces high-detailed models.
