Technologies – FDM vs SLA
D3PC prints parts from a variety of technologies to meet your needs. We maintain both Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Stereo-Lithography Apparatus (SLA) 3D printers in house, and we stock a wide variety of materials.
FDM 3D printers create objects using the “traditional” printing method of heating thermoplastic filament and extruding it in layers on a heated glass bed. FDM is very fast and extremely flexible in terms of resolution and the types of materials that can be used. FDM is great for quickly and cheaply producing parts to determine qualities like aesthetic design, ergonomic shape, and for small batches to perform product testing. We maintain a steady stock of materials to include ABS, PLA, PETG, Nylon blends, exotic filaments (i.e. carbon fiber impregnated plastics), and many more.
SLA 3D printers create objects using a system of mirrors and high powered UV lasers to solidify light sensitive liquid resin in a series of layers. SLA offers extremely high resolution (great for branding and mold making) and offers high performance materials for unique jobs. We maintain a steady stock of standard, flexible, and rigid resin for our customers. We also offer (through special order) castable resin (clean burnout for lost material casting), optically transparent resin (capable of making camera lenses), high temp resin (functional to ~600 deg F), and biocompatible resins (used in surgery).
