Kudo3D Announces Castable Resin, Smaller Build Platform Availability for Fine Detail 3D Printing

Share this Article

San Francisco-based 3D printer manufacturer Kudo3D is continuing its growth phase and paving the way for higher quality,kudo logo more detailed 3D printing. In May, we reported on Kudo3D as they neared the beginning of the Kickstarter campaign for their Titan 1 SLA 3D printers, using proprietary ‘Passive Self-Peeling’ technology, which according to the company allows for “features as tiny as a strand of hair or a big object as tall as 9.5 inches can be printed on the same machine.”

In June, Kudo3D successfully completed its Kickstarter campaign — raising nearly $700,000 (almost 14 times their original goal!) — and is now producing Titan 1 SLA 3D printers.

Not one to rest on its laurels, Kudo3D is moving right along in its quest toward the best printing quality possible. The company has just announced their selection of a castable resin to carry, as well as the introduction of smaller build platforms.

3D Materials‘ 3DM-Cast castable resin was the clear victor, providing Kudo3D “excellent results” over months’ worth of thorough testing. This resin really proved itself during both the printing and casting process. Supporting high resolutions (26-37 microns XY resolution), the resin was designed for high-resolution printing and direct investment casting. 3DM-Cast-1-500x637

Kudo3D now has the 3DM-Cast available for pre-order on their website, with a 500-gram bottle priced at just $190. The resin will produce detailed projects and is well-suited for jewelry casting and other fine detail needs.

Fine detail printing will certainly benefit from a well-chosen castable resin material, but Kudo3D isn’t stopping there. They also announced the upcoming availability of smaller build platforms, ideal for creating miniature pieces and jewelry.

Kudo 3D notes of its new platform:

“It lessens the separation force during the first 2 mm of printing, which helps to preserve thinner support structures. The maximum build size for this platform is 7.3 cm x 10.2 cm.”

Users who enjoy creating anything in miniature will surely revel at this news. Jewelry casting, for example, requires a highly delicate production process and great levels of detail.  Have you tried either new product?  Discuss in the Kudo3D forum thread on 3DPB.com.

Jewelry designers will be able to create highly detailed pre-casts of their pieces. While Kudo3D has been known for their impressive levels of detail, the new, smaller build platform will only heighten that reputation.

While additional build platform orders are not currently accepted on Kudo3D’s website, they will be soon. Owners of Titan 1 printers are also able, through October 26, to take advantage of a special trade-in offer. If you have a larger build platform and are interested in trading it in for one of these new, smaller versions, you can email at: roberta.helgeson@kudo3d.com with the Subject line: “Trade In Build Platform.” This offer is good through 5 pm PST on Sunday.
