XYZPrinting has been on a role at Computex 2014 this week. Yesterday, we posted the full specs of their 2 new all-in-one 3D printer/scanners, starting at just $700, and today we have received word of yet another device that the Taiwanese company will be launching.
Early this morning XYZPrinting revealed to us an additional 3D printer, one which differs greatly from the FFF based models that they have become known for. The da Vinci Nobel will be the company’s very first 3D printer which relies on stereolithography (SLA) technology. Instead of the machine using a heated hot end extruder to melt plastic filament, it uses a laser to cure a photosensitive resin, equating to a much better final resolution of the printed object.
The Following are the specifications of the da Vinci Nobel 1.0
- Print Technique: Stereolithography Apparatus, SLA
- Printer Size: 28.2x 33.7x 60.5cm
- Printer Weight: 20 lb/9.1 kg
- Display: 5” Touch Panel
- Connectivity of Device: USB 2.0 , Host / Client , WIFI
- Build Envelope: 12.8×12.8x20cm
- Print Resolution: X/Y : 300microns Z: 25 microns
- Printing Material: Photopolymer Resin
According to the company, the “Nobel 1.0 provides a stable SLA printing quality so that users do not need to add liquid resin constantly throughout the printing process.”
This release comes on the heals of several companies releasing SLA printers. Autodesk, Last month announced that they will be entering the 3D printing space with a new SLA printer which will retail for around $5,000, while a recent Kickstarter project Kudo3D’s Titan 1 SLA printer has already raised $340,000 with 23 days left. That printer will retail for $2499, once launched.
XYZPrinting tells 3DPrint.com that the Nobel 1.0 will cost under $2,500, making it very affordable compared to some of the other SLA printers on the market today. XYZPrinting expects to ship the first units of the da Vinci Nobel by the 4th quarter of this year, and believes that it will be perfect for those users concerned with print quality and resolution, such as jewelers, dentists, and those using rapid molding processes. Further details and a discussion around this new printer can be found at the da Vinci Nobel forum thread at 3DPB.com.
