LCD vs DLP 3D printing - See for Yourself and Compare Prints

Which Resin 3D Printing Technology to Select for Serial Production with Injection-Molding-Like Part Quality?


Comparing parts produced with DLP and LCD 3D printing technology 

Additive manufacturing processes for serial production of end-use parts must be fully controllable so you can consistently print accurate parts with defined tolerances, maintaining the physical properties of your prints. And you need the capability to repeat this without restarting print preparation – whether it’s the next day or the next month, on the same printer or a similar machine.

Resin 3D printing, or vat polymerization, is recognized as the most accurate and precise among 3D printing technologies, with DLP and LCD being faster alternatives to laser-based stereolithography (SLA). Although considered similar and benchmarked against one another, LCD and DLP 3D printing are in fact very different technologies.

Can you use both technologies to produce end-use parts with the required accuracy, surface finish and dimensional properties that industrial AM demands? Can both do so consistently and repeatable?

There is only one way to find out! We had parts printed on both an LCD and a DLP printer and compared these thoroughly side by side.
