Xometry has added two more engineered 3D printing materials to its stereolithography (SLA) line up. These materials—Somos EvoLVe and Somos PerFORM—each offer unique strengths and greater versatility to the high-detail, smooth surface 3D printing technology.

SLA Somos EvoLVe 128



A part made with Somos EvoLVE 128

SLA Somos EvoLVe 128 looks and feels like traditional thermoplastics. With an eggshell color, high strength and durability, and the detailed resolution inherent in SLA, this material can fit a variety of needs for prototyping or low-volume production.

Try this material for parts that need to behave like ABS plastic with a smooth surface finish such as electronics enclosures, medical device prototypes, and accurate part models.

SLA Somos PerFORM is a ceramic-filled material that creates extremely stiff and detailed parts. PerFORM has one of the highest heat deflection temperatures of all SLA resins, starting at 132°C and reaching up to 268°C with a thermal post-cure.

Try this material for fixtures, structural features, prototype mold inserts, and wind tunnel test models. This material is also available in high resolution.
