Cheap and affordable photopolymer 3D printers

    Not so long ago, photopolymer printing was expensive and available only to professionals.
    Now the cost of equipment has fallen sharply due to well-known startups and mass-produced desktop (office) 3D printers from China.

    I bring to your attention three popular models for home use (prices from $ 229).

    What is a 3D printer, I am sure, no need to explain. Many have already seen FDM printing or may have used additive technologies. But SLA (stereolithographic printing) still remained the prerogative of large firms, clinics, and so on. Cheaper prices - the use of a special resin with UV curing - simple LEDs and LED arrays made this type of printing available. SLA UV printers can now be used at home. The main costs are for consumables (photopolymer resin), since filling the bath requires a decent amount of material: 100 ml or more at a time. The cost of a photopolymer starts from 4 thousand rubles per liter and above.

    Now in order.

    The most budget, the most affordable on the market -photopolymer printer SparkMaker SLA UV 3D Printer .

    SparkMaker SLA is a successful startup that successfully combined high-quality components with a sound idea. For printing using a simple UV photopolymer resin (405nm).

    The printer is compact, equipped with a protective cap, inside the bath, rail guide (MGN15H). Prints from a memory card, for the preparation of models provided corporate slicer (Spark Studio). Available video usage, instructions, test models.

    Printing accuracy is obtained up to 50 microns (positioning accuracy is much higher). The size of the print area is 98 x 55 x 125 mm.

    The next interesting representative can be considered a new model.N4 UV Photocuring LCD 3D Printer from the famous brand Anet .
    This UV SLA printer with a large color display 3.5 "and off-line printing (memory card).

    The cost is slightly higher than the previous model, but in the pros of print sizes:
    - more print field 120x60x138 mm;
    - higher positioning accuracy, higher printing accuracy (~ 30 microns);
    - higher power UV-exposure;
    - higher print speed (less time of exposure of the layer).

    Depending on the type of photopolymer, you can use these SLA 3D printers for modeling and prototyping, working out 3D models, designing, as well as for jewelry (“burned out” photopolymer, castable). It should be noted that these technologies are used for prosthetics in dentistry - with a special dental photopolymer.

    In any case, this is a new round of "home" and office printers.
