Abstract

The application of StereoLithography to rapidly pro- duce models has received considerable attention in the Land Mobile Products Sector during the past year. While these models have been excellent representations to eval- uate form, the brittleness of the material used in the Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA) reduces the use- fulness of models for evaluating fit and function. The models crack and break without gentle handling.
