Similar to polyjet matrix printing, stereolithography is an additive manufacturing process that using the combination of resin and a UV laser to build prototypes one layer at a time. The CAD model provides the data for the laser to trace each cross section on the surface of the liquid resin. The UV laser then heats the resin to a solidifying state, fusing it with the layer beneath. After a layer has been completed, the build tray platform descends so a new layer of resin can be applied. After the build has been completed, the part is then immersed in a chemical bath to remove any excess resin. The final step in the stereolithography process is for the part to be cured in a UV oven.

After a pattern has been traced, the SLA's elevator platform descends by a single layer thickness, typically 0.05 mm to 0.15 mm (0.002" to 0.006"). Then, a resin-filled blade sweeps across the part cross section, re-coating it with fresh material. On this new liquid surface the subsequent layer pattern is traced, adhering to the previous layer. A complete 3D part is formed by this process. After building, parts are cleaned of excess resin by immersion in a chemical bath and then cured in a UV oven.
