Carbon Digital Light
(DLS)TM Process

Advantage Engineering Carbon DLS

DLSTM uses digital UV light projection, oxygen permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to make reliable, watertight, isotropic plastic parts with a surface finish similar to injection molding.

Why Make Parts Using The Carbon DLSTM Process?

  • Parts produced by Carbon DLSTM are stronger and more resilient with exceptional accuracy and mechanical properties
  • Carbon DLSTM parts undergo secondary thermal curing to ensure produced parts have engineering-grade mechanical properties
