Study of the influence of technological features of laser stereolithography process on functional characteristics of parts


The article reports on the effect the building orientation of the part, produced by laser stereolithography technology, has on achieving its best functional characteristics. Based on the example of IPLIT-3 and IPLIT-4 resins, the study shows that in contrast to the literature data on other commercial photocurable resins (PCRs), there is no definite advantage of the vertical orientation of the test samples compared to their horizontal orientation for obtaining the best values of the manufactured part functional characteristics.
