Here at 3D Folkes, we use both FDM and SLA 3D printers to make sure that we can always cater for your prototyping needs. Below is a quick summary of the main differences between these two types of printers:


  • Faster print speed so good for big models and production runs. Up to 750mm x 750mm x 500mm.
  • Larger choice of colours and materials
  • Not able to produce fine details

SLA (Form 2)

  • Smoother finish
  • More intricate details
  • Slower print speed
  • Higher dimensional accuracy
