Frequently Asked Questions

What are my options for micro resin-based parts?

Micro Resin-Based PartsOperating from 50 micron all way down to 10 micron layers, the surface detail is so fine you‘ll need a magnifying glass to see it. It's ideal for those situations where high resolution is just not enough. Micro Resin-Based Parts

With 10 micron layers and capable of resolving features down to 65 micron in the x-y plane, this provides a fast option for smaller parts that are feature rich or where high accuracy is required.

Quantities can be flexible and with numbers from as low as 1 off reaching right up to the 200 - 300 bracket, this fine layer resolution process can provide genuinely viable prototype or production options. 

With 24 hour turnarounds possible and a range of materials and colours, this fine layer resolution process could be the ultimate answer to your small part requirement.

For information on other additive processes such as 3D Printing, Stereolithography, Selective Laser Sintering and Direct Metal Laser Sintering, please take a look at our processes page or contact us for advice or to request a quotation.

Related Processes

Stereolithography (SLA)

Produces accurate 3D models with a range of material choices. High Res SLA and Micro SLA for smaller parts.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is the second most commonly used process after Stereolithography (SLA). SLS parts can be produced with high functionality in very short lead times.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)

DMLS (or Laser Cusing) is an additive process, suitable for prototyping & manufacturing of metal parts with highly complex or feature rich designs.

3D Printing

Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM), Polyjet, Digital Light Process (DLP); all are quick and provide a degree of accuracy that satisfies most design requirements. But which is the best option?
