Dear all,
Considering the new materials developed for the SLA process, like DSM Somos NanoForm 15120, could SLA compete with the SLS process, regarding direct manufacturing of plastic parts?
It is well-known that SLA is the best rapid prototyping process regarding its accuracy. But, the main limitation was always the material mechanical properties and dimensional stability.
So, could someday, SLA be used to manufacture end parts?
