Solid parts with consistent and predictable mechanical properties
Digital Light Printing (DLP) refers to a method of printing that makes use of light and photosensitive polymers. In most forms of DLP, each layer of the desired structure is projected onto a vat of liquid resin that is then solidified layer by layer as the buildplate moves up or down. As the process creates each layer successively, it is quicker than most forms of 3D printing.
Parts printed with Digital Light Printing have less visible layers versus other processes and can have faster build speeds due to a single layer being created in one singular digital image. DLP is commonly used to generate highly detailed artwork, non-functional prototypes, and can be used to make molds in investment casting applications.
