Sinterit Introduces Upgrades to the Original Lisa Desktop SLS 3D Printer

Share this Article

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printing has come a long way in just a few years, and some of the technology’s recent increased popularity can be traced to Sinterit and its novel 3D printer, the Lisa, which brought SLS 3D printing to the desktop and made it affordable and accessible for small and medium-sized businesses for a wide variety of applications. Sinterit recently introduced a larger, more powerful version of the 3D printer, the Lisa 2 Pro, but that doesn’t mean that the company is finished with the original model. Today, Sinterit announced that it has upgraded the original Lisa 3D printer to appeal to the needs of different users than are targeted with the Lisa 2 Pro.

“Our R&D team was continuously working from the release date of Sinterit Lisa in 2014,” said Sinterit Co-Founder Michal Grzymala-Moszczynski, responsible for Product Development. “We spent almost every day of this nearly four year period finding out what could be done better, more comfortable for the user and as flawless as possible. I am so proud of the fantastic work and incredible dedication of our engineers. Their work is going to help our clients print better and more reliably.”

Those clients are partially responsible for the changes in the Lisa, thanks to their feedback and input.

“On the other hand, we are more than pleased that our customers from all over the world were sharing their thoughts and ideas on what to change or implement in Lisa,” said Konrad Glowacki, Sinterit Co-Founder responsible for Sales. “There is nothing better than real feedback from a person who uses your 3D printer.”

The new and improved Lisa has a bigger print size on the Y axis, with the diagonal dimension of the print area rising from 227 to 245 mm. The physical size of the print bed has not changed, but the bed is better heated to allow for the 3D printing of larger objects.

“Recent hardware enhancements resulted in better temperature management and boosted the reliability of prints,” said Paweł Szczurek, Sinterit’s CEO responsible also for the IT department. “There were plenty of changes which made the whole system more tight and hindering from losing temperature (e.g. more tight gasket, more tight protective glass).”

The new Lisa is easier to maintain, too. Users can more easily access the 3D printer’s lid and replace the protective glass, meaning that less time is necessary to clean the printer and start printing. An improved user interface makes the Lisa easier to operate overall – and it was never a very difficult printer, so the new improvements make it extremely simple now.

The price of the newly upgraded Lisa will go up, but until August 1st, customers can pre-order the 3D printer for the original cost starting at €4990.
