Features and Benefits

N

Top-Down Laser-Scanned Printing

No peeling, so better with small details; no film replacement, fewer necessary supports, no mirror cleaning, and better consistency.

N

Continuously Adjustable Resolution

Vary voxel sizes in each dimension to optimize speed and quality.

N

Extensive, Non-Proprietary Resin Options

Choose from a wide range of low-viscosity 405nm-sensitive resins.

N

Simple, Easy-to-Use Design

Reliable, almost unbreakable all metal construction; quick to learn.

N

Compact and Space-Efficient

Build area of 120⨯80⨯80mm; small, lightweight desktop machine.

N

Quiet, Low-Power Operation

Barely audible while printing; only about 10W power consumption.

3D Printing with the Large Accessory

Ideal for dental molds, structural / functional parts, and other large / solid objects.

Sample Prints

Generic rook at 50μm

Hollow sphere at 200μm

Dental casts at 75μm

Solid Objects

Print totally solid cross-sections with ease by using the resin wiper and choose between many infill modes in ProtoCut.

Large Objects

Print large and/or high-volume objects without needing to pause the print and refill the resin as with other printers.

Dental

Print dental and orthodontic scans from STL files. Also, create detailed surgical guides and model braces into prints.

 

Features and Benefits

N
