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.
|Standard lead time||Minimum of 3 working days, depending on part size, number of components and finishing degrees (offline orders)
4 working days (online orders)
12 hours (NextDay orders)
|Standard accuracy||±0.2% (with lower limit on ±0.2 mm)|
|Layer thickness||0.1 mm (offline & online orders)
0.15 – 0.2 mm (NextDay orders)
|Minimum wall thickness||1 – 3 mm (depending on part dimensions)|
|Maximum part dimensions||2000 x 700 x 788 mm (offline orders)
1100 x 690 x 590 mm (online orders)
350 x 350 x 75 mm (NextDay orders)
Maximum part dimensions can vary according to the chosen material and the geometry of the part
|Interlocking or enclosed parts?||No|
|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, painted, varnished, covered and coated|
Need prototypes fast?
From your design to your desk in 24 hours. NextDay prototypes.
Deadlines matter. If you’re in a rush and need your prototypes ASAP, we offer you dedicated NextDay service using Stereolithography machines reserved for just that purpose. We can ensure lead times of under 1 working day for your most time-critical projects. Let’s put the ‘rapid’ back into rapid prototyping.
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.
