Does SLA require post-processing?

After SLA 3D printed parts are created, they typically undergo several post-processing steps to achieve the desired finish and mechanical properties. The basic post-processing steps include:

● Washing: Parts must be cleaned to remove any uncured resin, which is usually done with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or a similar solvent.

● Post-Curing: To fully solidify and strengthen the part, it is exposed to UV light in a process called post-curing.

● Additional Finishing: Depending on the application, further steps like sanding, painting, or coating may enhance the print's appearance and functionality.

These steps are essential to ensure the quality and durability of the final product. If you're planning to use SLA 3D printing for your project, we provide online SLA 3D printing services and 3D+ solutions to meet your specific requirements.
