Why choose Digital Light Processing (DLP)?
One of the biggest strengths of Digital Light Processing (DLP), which is one of the newer 3D Printing processes, is the material chemistries of its resins that resemble production grade materials. The DLP material range addresses a wide variety of applications needs, for functional prototyping, direct production of end-use parts and molding and casting. Available materials cover a wide range of critical properties and include rubber-like, castable, heat resistant, and rigid and durable with thermoplastic-like behaviours materials.
The DLP process is particularly suited to parts with complex structures with small cross sectional areas that require good surface finish and high strength properties.
Models produced using digital light processing are manufactured with ultra fast print speeds and parts can be turned around rapidly. This makes it a very suitable process for projects which require efficient design iteration.
DLP is ideal for low volume production as production-grade parts can be manufactured without tooling at competitive prices.
