Ultracur3D® Photopolymer works with following Technologies

Stereolithography (SLA)

Imaging System: Laser

SLA offers extremely high accuracy with finely detailed features, either bottom-up or top-down. Being one of the most precise 3D printing techniques on the market, SLA can be used to create highly complex prototypes with a smooth surface finish.

  • High surface finishing and accuracy
  • Perfect for printing very large parts

Digital Light Processing (DLP)

Imaging System: Video Projector

Digital Light Processing provides excellent capabilities for 3D printing / Additive Manufacturing processes with an eye on efficiency. DLP is your go-to method when  opting for a quick printing process without compromising on the quality of intricate parts.

  • High productivity
  • For larger and smaller parts

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)

Imaging System: LCD Screen

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) provides the opportunity to replace low and medium series injection moulds with large parts. One of the biggest benefits of printing with Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is to enable economic and large-scale production.

  • Precise, high resolution prints
  • Small and large scale 3D printing
