Materials

SLA SLA - Stereolithography

Stereolithography (SLA) materials are epoxy based liquid photopolymers that cure under a particular wavelength of UV light.

DMLS DMLS - Direct Metal Laser Sintering

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) materials are gas atomized metal alloy powders that are sintered into fully dense parts in 20 micron layers.

SLS SLS - Selective Laser Sintering

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) materials are mostly nylon based powders. Some of these powders come from plant based sources, some petrochemical.

FDM FDM - Fused Deposition Modeling

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) are real engineering grade thermoplastics that are extruded into wire filaments and extruded through a heated printhead.

ProCAST ProCAST RTV

Room Temperature Vulcanized (RTV) Cast Urethanes and Epoxies are thermoset plastics engineered to perform like thermoplastics.

CNC CNC Machining

Using most any billet alloy or plastic, parts are Subtractively Manufactured by CNC process.

Hybrid Tooling Hybrid Tooling

The Hybrid process is a derivative of RTV tooling, which uses thermoset urethanes and epoxies for short-run manufacturing.

polyjet PolyJET

PolyJET has a variety of digital materials available, both opaque and transparent, rubber-like, and composite.
