Stereolithography (SLA) is one of the most important techniques used in rapid prototyping processes. It has a great industrial interest because it allows for dramatic time savings with respect to traditional manufacturing processes. One of the main sources of error in the final dimensions of the prototype is the curl distortion effect owing to the shrinkage of the resin during the SLA process. Presents a study of the influence of different constructive and numerical parameters in the curl distortion, an analysis which was made using the computer code stereolithography analysis program, developed to model SLA processes using the finite element method. Also briefly presents this code.
