A type of vat photopolymerization additive manufacturing where a laser is used to draw a path on the top layer of the vat, converting the liquid polymer into a solid. The build plate is then lowered, a new layer of liquid covers the top, and the process is repeated.

Stereolithography was the first commercially available additive manufacturing process.

It is abbreviated as SLA.
