Poly1500 is a translucent material with properties comparable to those of PP (polypropylene) and engineering plastics. Being impact-resistant and durable, this material is suited for rigid, functional prototypes in a large range of applications such as automotive components, electronic housings, snap-fit assemblies and medical products.

Surface structure Unfinished parts typically have visible building layers on the surface but post-production finishes can achieve different effects, from high glosses to coarse textures. Stereolithography parts can be sandblasted, smoothed, colored/impregnated, painted, varnished, covered and coated.

How Does Stereolithography Work?

Stereolithography is a laser-based technology that uses a UV-sensitive liquid resin. A UV laser beam scans the surface of the resin and selectively hardens the material corresponding to a cross section of the product, building the 3D part from the bottom to the top. The required supports for overhangs and cavities are automatically generated, and later manually removed.
