SLA 3D Printing With Engineering Materials: From CAD Design to Finished Part
October 10, 2018
DATE: Wednesday, October 7, 2018
TIME: 2:00 pm ET/ 11:00 am PT
Workloading, CNC machining setup, and programming can get very labor intensive and expensive when designing for demanding tolerances. With increasingly affordable, stereolithography (SLA) 3D printers available, engineers and product designers can create detailed and high-surface quality parts with significantly less labor and time.
In this webinar, Kevin Gautier, Channel Application Engineer at Formlabs, will walk you through the SLA 3D printing process from initial concept in CAD to finished physical part and share a range of applications you can use with our Engineering Resins.
What you will learn:
- How to prepare a design with demanding tolerances, 3D print a model, and post-process it
- How to use engineering materials and their respective applications for SLA printing
- Advantages of SLA over fused deposition modeling (FDM) and digital light processing (DLP) technology
