Years after its inception, stereolithography (SLA) is still the leading method for producing high-tolerance rapid prototypes and accurately detailed master patterns for our short-run additive manufacturing process. Despite the growing number of choices for 3D printing, designers and engineers most often prefer to use SLA as their primary choice for prototypes.
At Forecast 3D, we utilize the latest in both large-format and high-resolution SLA equipment and resins to generate 3D models virtually overnight from your CAD data. We also offer a broad variety of resins to suit your SLA Rapid Prototyping needs. Beyond our broad resin selection, we keep a variety of leading SLA machines. Our high-resolution Viper machine offers SLA parts at .002" layer thickness, while our large-format Viper Pro has the ability to build the largest single part builds available.
Our unique post processes empower SLA parts to serve as production parts suitable for the Medical and Aerospace fields. With chrome plating, vacuum metallization, specialized multi-coat painting, texturized surfacing and even machining, we can produce the finest model available.
We pride ourself in utilizing the best and latest resins and machines. Our staff of veteran SLA operators and technicians is trusted to operate, maintain and calibrate all of our SLA systems, allowing for little to no downtime in our operations.
