What Is 3D Printing?
In simple words, three-dimensional Printing is a process that manufactures and creates physical objects with the help of digital design. This manufacturing procedure is carried out by placing thin layers of raw materials in powdered plastic or liquid, cement or metal, and then fusing all of the layers. This may sound surprising but do not worry, as the fluid does not damage the 3D printers.
Ever since this magnificent technology was newly invented, 3D Printing has significantly increased the manufacturing productivity of all the relevant industries. As this technology is developing every day at such an intense pace, it is suspected that 3D printers will be capable of printing out human organs in the future. To clarify, this process is called 3D bioprinting instead of 3D Printing. Until now, scientists and doctors have only managed to bioprint a bladder and successfully transplant it into a human.
Enough introduction. Since you are here for the sole purpose of sculpturing through 3D printers, let us dive into the world of SLA printing, as mentioned above.
What Is SLA Printing?
The sole purpose of Stereolithography printing, or most commonly known as SLA printing, is to manufacture prototypes of new products for different industries such as medical sectors and many more. Stereography is a preservative technique that simulates parts layer by layer through other photochemical processes. Cross-linking chemicals, oligomers and monomers carry out this process to form polymers. With the help of CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software, an ultraviolet laser is aimed at a vat of photopolymer resin. This ensures that the wax is reinforced and hardened photochemically, and a single layer is formed of the desired part. Later on, a separate layer is lowered by the printer’s platform, and the tank is recoated with resin. This process is conducted several times until the part is completely formed. Once completed, the part is properly washed to cleanse the surface from any leftover resin. In short, SLA Printing is the most common and widely used method for 3D Printing.
What Are The Benefits Of SLA Printing?
As stereolithography printing is the first-ever technique developed to help the cause of 3D Printing, it indeed comes with many benefits and advantages.
The benefits of SLA Printing are as followed:
SLA printing allows the operator of the 3D printer to produce the items with a high level of accuracy and precision. This is due to the thinness of each of the prepared layers. As the layers are thin, the printer can complete its duty with sheer accuracy.
Stereolithography printing is also known to be the fastest printing technique out there. The high amount of speed allows even the most complex projects to be completed in two days. Furthermore, this technique does not require the need to mould, as it works based on adding materials.
To sum things up, 3D Printing is no child’s play. As mentioned above, it is a quite complex task that requires sheer expertise. Even a slight error will mess up the entire product.
