Digital Light Synthesis is a breakthrough technology that uses digital light projection, programmable liquid resins and oxygen-permeable optics to produce parts with exceptional durability, resolution, and surface finish. Together with Carbon’s custom liquid resins it unlocks new business opportunities and allows you to bring unique products to market by introducing previously impossible designs, consolidated parts, faster iterations, and programmable lattices.
Available Carbon DLS™ 3D Printing Materials
- Urethane Methacrylate (UMA 90)
- Rigid Polyurethane (RPU 70)
- Flexible Polyurethane (FPU 50)
- Epoxy (EPX 82)
- Digital Production Resin (DPR 10)
- Silicone (SIL 30)
- Elastomeric Polyurethane (EPU 40)
Carbon DLS parts usually have a matte to semi-gloss surface finish depending on the feature direction. Extended protrusions will show vertical lines in the part that are parallel to the direction of growth. Supports are removed and mitigated as required.
We can provide additional processing to meet your requirements.
Textures can be applied in-CAD using various design software. Because of the continuous printing process, matte and geometric textures can be aesthetically pleasing and help mitigate cosmetic variations on the surface.
Pros & Cons of Carbon DLS™ 3D printing
|Large platform: you can print very large parts using this technology||Build Size: Parts with dimensions exceeding 10 x 10 x 15 cm will require manual review for producibility.|
|Rubber-Like Flexibility: Parts produced using Carbon DLS technology are very flexible.||Tolerances: DLS prints in tight tolerances of ±0.1% (min 0.1mm). However, tolerances are not guaranteed on the first attempt of a new design. Tolerance ranges can vary across different materials (e.g. elastomeric versus rigid materials).|
|Durability: Parts made with Carbon DLS are not only flexible but also durable||Feature size: Although DLS prints are isotropic, the orientation of the part during building will dictate minimum feature sizes. In general, we recommend keeping any feature above 1mm.|
|Part Production: The carbon platform is well suited for end-use production, including low-volume, high-mix, and mass production||Prototyping: Single, one-off prototypes may be more costly due to production setup cost factors.|
|Material Selection: Compared to top injection molded materials, the Carbon platform offers the widest range of materials suitable for end-use.||Biocompatibility: Even though some DLS materials are biocompatible-certified, end-user parts for compatible with ISO 10993-5 and -10 norms are extremely challenging to obtain.|
