Xometry has the largest selection of industrial 3D printing options available for instant online quoting. Our stereolithography (SLA) service boasts over 15 unique materials with engineered properties and finishing. This September 2020, we are announcing the addition of Somos WaterShed Black to our lineup.
Stereolithography 3D printing is often used for concept models due to its remarkable surface finish and black color. Somos WaterShed Black balances a clean black finish with ABS-like mechanical properties. This material is a close relative to the widely-used Somos WaterShed XC 11122, a clear 3D printing resin.

WaterShed Black offers a truer black color off of the machine compared to other black SLA resins. This can be experienced with the Natural or Strip & Ship finishes available on Xometry’s Instant Quoting Engine™. The Standard Matte finish will give the parts a satin dark grey look that shows off its high accuracy and feature detail resolution.
Last month Xometry also launched Somos EvoLVe and Somos PerFORM. You can read about that here.
