Stereolithography (SLA) is a type of 3D printing technology that uses a laser to cure a liquid resin into a solid object. The process begins by using a laser beam to selectively cure a liquid photopolymer resin layer by layer, building up the final object. The laser beam is directed onto the surface of a vat of liquid resin, hardening it into a solid object. The build platform is then lowered by a small increment and a new layer of liquid resin is spread on top. The process is repeated until the final object is built up, layer by layer
