How Stereolithography Works

 

Stereolithography uses a photopolymer process in which liquid resin is exposed to an ultraviolet (UV) laser, which traces a layer of the 3D model image onto the resin. The exposure to light causes a layer of the resin to solidify. The build platform rises and the resin is again exposed to the laser. This process repeats until the part is complete.
