3D Printing. Ultra High Resolution 3D-Printing
Our Ultra High Resolution 3D Printing options give you a choice of processes and materials to match your application requirements and budget.
We give you a choice of three process which deliver laser cured resin parts with superb detail. Our two premium services deliver super detail but with different support structure technologies while our new, fast turnaround SLA-Grey service gives you a next day service on small parts.
Fine Detail Builds
Our two 'Gold Standard' services offer excellent detail, differing in the way that each process manages it's support structures.
The 'Viper' based materials are printed with a SLA based process using break away supports while the 'EX200' material uses a wax based support system where the wax is heated and melts away. This makes it perfect for 3d printing very fragile parts or parts with small or complex internal channels.
Our new lower cost 'Grey SLA' material gives a 'next day' service for small parts and offers excellent detail and surface finish.
Ultra High Resolution 3D Printing materials give your designs:
Excellent aesthetics & detail with fine build layers.
Fine individual details and wall thicknesses down to 0.4mm or less.
High levels of accuracy & dimensional stability.
Break away or Melt away support systems.
Biological culture growth possible with 'Viper' ClearVue material.
Responds well to paint and glue.
Clients choose our Ultra High Resolution service for designs in rigid materials with small or complex features. Popular applications include scale model kit 'Master' parts for moulding master, 3d printed designs for Microfluidics applications and medical research experimental parts in dentistry.

Examples Ultra High Resolution
Ultra High resolution 3d printing for a scale model application.
These designs were 3D printed using our 'Viper' ultra high resolution SLA service, the 'gold standard' for 3D printing intricate parts. They are part of a military scale model project and our client described them "as good as injection moulded parts!".
Dental research designs 3d printed in Ultra High resolution SLA 'clear'.
Our SLA Clear service is a favorite for medical research applications for it's combination of clarity and the ability to host bacterial growth. The designs pictured are part of a dental research project.
Ultra fine 3d printing for a demanding scale model application.
For demanding modeling applications our 16um Projet service gives designers the freedom to incorporate delicate features and details. The support structures on this system melts away, avoiding potential damage during the support removal and clean up stage. The part pictured is part of a scale model truck project.
Microfluidic 3d printed device via the Ultra High resolution Projet system.
The Projet system gives the best option for Microfluidic type devices, supporting sub 1mm channels. The melt away support structure is key to producing these parts, and works best with openings at each end of the part to help overcome surface tension.

OUR CLIENTS SAY
"For small detailed parts, the quality was excellent."
"Our customer in France wanted some 3D printed models for testing prior to ordering expensive mould tools. 3D Alchemy quoted, manufactured and delivered within 2 weeks. Highly recommend."
