A technology where the melt extrusion method is used to deposit filaments of thermal plastics according to a specific pattern. The layout for FDM consists of a printhead that moves along X and Y directions above a build platform.
A 3D printing process that uses a computer-controlled moving laser beam, pre-programmed using CAM/CAD software. Stereolithography (SL) is an industrial 3D printing process used to create concept models, cosmetic - rapid prototypes, and complex parts with intricate geometries in as fast as 1 day.
A UV light coming from an array of LEDs shining through an LCD flashes complete layers at the resin tank. A screen is used to mask the entire image, only revealing the current layer for curing. LCD 3D printing is a cost-effective resin manufacturing technique to get big and detailed functional parts.
