3D printer manufacturer Longer3D has launched a highly competitive resin printer, the Longer Orange 10, an affordable SLA 3D printer with performance and specs that position it competitively in its class.
As an entry-level SLA 3D printer, Longer Orange 10 has a variety of useful features:
- A unique light path design for a uniform surface light source, greatly improving print quality and avoiding debris;
- Automatic supports to ensure the success rate of complex models;
- Ultra-fast slicing system that enables you to cut 100M files in tens of seconds;
- The 2.8-inch full-color touch screen makes it easy to select files for printing and view the printing process in real-time .;
- Simple leveling;
- High-temperature warning function: The printing process pauses automatically at high LED temperatures and will resume printing automatically upon sufficient cooling.
With a print size of 98*55*140mm, the Orange 10 can print multiple custom products in batches in a matter of hours. Furthermore, the Orange 10 is made entirely of sheet metal, making it more durable than plastic-body SLA printers.
Longer3D’s Orange 10 is capable of delivering super smooth and highly precise finishes. With a Z-resolution of 10 μm, the Orange 10 can print castings, architectural models, jewelry, auto parts, just to name a few useful applications. This precision printing is made possible by SLA technology. Whereas FDM printing is achieved through the nozzle, instead SLA printing uses photochemistry to create models, prototypes, patterns, and production parts.
In SLA printing the liquid resin material is hardened by a highly focused surface light source, layer by layer. This helps to achieve accurate details and deliver higher quality prints than are possible using FDM. New SLA resin materials offer high performance and durability making them suitable for industrial use. Adding mineral oil can lubricate the surfaces of the 3D print and hide discoloration.
SLA 3D printers generally range in price from $430 to as high as $5,000. The average price of an SLA 3D printer on the market today is $1,800. But the Longer Orange 10 is currently available for just $268, an affordable enough price point that could convince 3D printing enthusiasts to switch from FDM to SLA technology.
If you are looking for high precision and sturdy prints on a limited budget, then the Orange 10 resin printer is worth your consideration.
Founded in 2014, Longer3D is a fast-growing 3D printing manufacturer from Shenzhen, China. Longer3D specializes in the development and manufacture of industrial-grade 3D printers and desktop 3D printers. Longer holds many patent pending applications for its industrial-grade 3D printers.
