Rapid Prototyping Service


Here at 3D Folkes, we use both FDM and SLA 3D printers to make sure that we can always cater for your prototyping needs, whether you a require a large scale architectural model, a small and detailed mechanical assembly or anything in between. Below is a quick summary of the main differences between these two types of printers:

FDM (plastic)

  • Faster print speed so good for big models and production runs. Up to 750mm x 750mm x 500mm.
  • Larger choice of colours and materials
  • Not able to produce fine details

SLA (resin)

  • Smoother finish
  • More intricate details
  • Slower print speed
  • Higher dimensional accuracy
