About HPS

Hybrid Photosynthesis (HPS) is a 3D printing technique that combines two popular methods: digital light processing (DLP) and stereolithography (SLA). DLP uses a light projector to cure a resin layer by layer, while SLA employs a laser to harden the resin. Hybrid Photosynthesis uses both techniques to create highly detailed and accurate 3D models. 

This technology is ideal for creating intricate and complex models with high detail. Hybrid Photosynthesis is already being utilized in various industries, including healthcare, automotive, and aerospace. In healthcare, this technology is used to create anatomical models that aid in surgical planning and implant design. In the automotive industry, it is used to make car product prototypes before mass production. Similarly, in the aerospace industry, it is used to create detailed models of aircraft parts before they are produced on a large scale. 

The use of Hybrid Photosynthesis is a game-changer in the 3D printing industry. By utilizing the strengths of both DLP and SLA techniques, this technology can produce a high-quality finished product that is both precise and intricate.
