Stereolithography (SL) is a process where high powered ultra-violet lasers are directed into a basin of liquid polymer resin solidifying those areas. The part is created in layers from the bottom up, each layer only thousandths of an inch thick. The result is a precise physical copy of the virtual computer model significantly lower in price than conventional prototyping, and delivered to you in a fraction of the time.
SCICON continues to use the latest in Stereolithography technology to generate solid or flexible, highly detailed functioning parts from your drawings, blueprints, or 3D-CAD files.
Stereolithography was invented by Chuck Hull and introduced by 3D Systems in 1986.
