What is the difference between SLA and FDM 3D printing?

While FDM printers produce a mechanical bond between layers, SLA 3D printers create chemical bonds by cross-linking photopolymers across layers, resulting in fully dense parts that are water and airtight.

Is FDM or resin faster?

The Short Answer. Simply put, SLA’s laser-based resin printing tends to be slower than FDM. The lasers have a very small surface area, so it takes more time to cover each layer. With FDM, you can usually print with much thicker layers and sparser infill, which reduces print times.

What is FDM good for?

The materials for FDM printers are inexpensive and widely available. Precise coding can be used to create accurate, high-quality objects. FDM printed objects can be used for a variety of purposes, and enhanced filaments still make them more durable.

What is FLM printing?

So what is an “FLM” printer? They say it stands for Fused Layer Manufacturing, a term they coined to describe a 3D printer capable of printing a complete layer at a time.
