3D Printing, Stereolithography (SLA), and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) are all processes used by Proventure Prototyping to create prototypes out of several types of plastics, composites, and metals. These processes are a fast and reliable way to turn a 3D CAD model into a physical part or prototype. These processes are used to create a physical model of a part before they move into mass production to test for any problems or changes that need to be made. They are also used as a prototype or one-off model to show investors, industries, or consumers before the part move into full production. 3D printing can sometimes be used in production products as well when the production quantities are low or the cost and complexity of other manufacturing processes are too high.
