SLA vs FDM Printing

SLA vs FDM Printing

We are often asked if Stereolithography (SLA) is better than Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) or vise versa. The same could be asked of a Range Rover Defender compared to a Ferrari. In both cases the answer depends on what it is you want to do with it!

You wouldn’t take a Ferrari on a safari!!

The same applies for selecting a 3D printing technology, where a specific advantage of one process can be used for a certain application, whereas the result might be less impressive using another process.

One of the most important factors when choosing which technology your business should invest in, is to gain an understanding of your business needs by conducting an application audit. If you would like to investigate which technology suits your business get in contact and we can explore together.
