Material-Details: Poly1500 Datasheet

Poly1500 is a durable and resilient material. The properties correspond approximately to those of PP (polypropylene).
Therefore, this material is particularly well suited to produce prototypes of injection-molded parts.
The typical SLA high surface quality and dimensional accuracy speaks well for this application.
This material can be printed in up to 2 m wide models at a time. The dimensional accuracy remains preserved by the freedom from distortion.

Advantages & disadvantages


  • Extrem High Resolution
  • Very smooth surface
  • High dimensional stability
  • Directly Platable
  • Up to 2 m at a time
  • Free-distortion


  • Insulators made of same material (visible traces on the part)
  • Large components can not be printed massively
  • Altert rapidly when UV irradiation

Price calculation

Unfortunately Poly1500 can not be calculated automatically.
The price differs from very small to very large parts and also the manual effort must be included forlarge parts.
We will send you a manual listing in under 24 hours.
A good target price for medium-sized parts is about 2 / cm. However, medium in this machine is approximately 1 m in length.

Typical usage

Poly1500 is used to manufacture the injection molding prototypes later in PP to be injected.
With Poly1500 it can be shoring tests and performed stress tests. A common application of Poly1500 is in the automotive industry. ere, bumpers and instrument panels in full size are printed to make installation tests of new models.


Poly1500 parts are manufactured in the SLA process.
SLA means Steriolithographie and is the oldest and most mature 3D printing process.
Since working with UV sensitive liquid plastics and no thermals is used to SLA, not warp parts.

The procedure:

Your model is decomposed by a program into individual layers of 0.05 mm.
Now a plate lowered into a bath of resin.
On this record, a UV laser now starts to "draw the contours and shapes of the parts". In all places where the laser exposed the Resinbad, the material hardens.
Now the build platform lowers to a layer thickness down and a slide provides new material on its surface.
This process is repeated layer by layer to your component until it is ready.
During the construction process, your part rests on the insulators .
These are removed after the manuel merge operation and sanded.

The surface of your model is determined by the technology and the chosen material. Therefore, we offer several post-processing steps. This affects the cost but also the quality of your model.

Soft-touch Painting

Soft-touch Painted 3D printing in SLA

Soft-touch is a special type of painting. The surface feels very soft after painting and smoothed on.
SLA parts with soft-touch are by far the closest to injection-molded parts with regard to interface, look and feel.
The parts are sanded by hand, primed and painted leading to a perfect surface without visible construction stages.
You won't believe the product was printed here.

  • require a minimum dimension of von 10x10x10 mm.
  • Price: 40% of the part price.
  • In painting 2 Working days must be set extra(included).



After post-curing under a UV lamp and additional Cleaning, we can Polish SLA parts.

What is to be observed on polished models:

  • Models can be polished until at least a size of 10 x 10 x 10 mm.
  • Traces of insulators disappear here.
  • The post will take about 0.05 mm material on all surfaces. Plan also something extra wall thickness.
  • Small details can disappear during this process.
  • The polishing service requires 2 extra Working days to the indicated delivery time.
  • Price: Polishing costs 30% of the part price as extra charge..

Painted models

Of course you can also paint 3D models from Poly1500 .
Here it is a grind, the parts not necessary, which makes the process more cost-effective and results in a high-gloss finish.

  • require a minimum dimension of von 10x10x10 mm
  • Price: 20% of the part price.
  • In painting 2 Working days must be set extra(included).




Coating 3D Printing


Poly1500 Parts can be wonderfully coated also.
Unlike ordinary materials, these must not be covered with a conductive layer, as SLA parts are directly coated.
To do this, your model is sanded and then coated with your desired equipment. Here also a coating with as gold or silver is possible.

  • We can coat only parts of 10 x 10 x 10 mm to 600 x 600 x 600 mm. Larger parts on demand.
  • Handling fee 12 € / Order
  • Hand electroplating .
  • High Resolution from 1 µm
