Abstract

Stereolithography (SL), also called Laser Photolithography, is a 3-dimensional (3D) printing process that uses a laser beam directed by a computer onto the surface of a photo-curable liquid (resin) to produce physical copies of solid or surface models. It is the most widely used among the available RP processes because of its superior part building accuracy.
