Realize SLA Materials Comparison Sheet

“Realize came through for us with a new robot hand design that other companies said they could not build it. With Brian Cazzell’s help inside Realize, not only did they say they could do it, they DID it, and Brian made sure all of the small features and channels were hand-cleared and ready for us to run tendons through. Very complex work and they nailed it!”
