Rapid Prototyping

Hatcher Associates offers the latest in Rapid Prototyping Technology
Stereolithography (SLA)
Stereolithography (SLA) is the latest rapid prototyping process, which allows for the creation of a precise three-dimensional part from a 3D CAD data file. The Viper SLA uses a solid-state laser to cure a photosensitive liquid polymer or resin. Applied layer by layer the resin creates a 3D part. SLA technology allows for parts to be created with accuracy and precision.
  • Our Viper SLA has a 10" x 10" x 10" build envelope
