NeXt is an extremely durable resin, suited for very accurate parts with high feature detail, and for tough, complex parts with good moisture resistance and thermal properties. NeXt is ideal for functional prototypes and end-use performance parts like snap-fit designs, impellers, duct work, connectors, automotive housings and dashboard assemblies.

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.
