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, and snap-fit 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.
