Titan 1 SLA Printer Castable Resin RingsKudo3D, the maker of the Titan 1 SLA 3D printer, says their passive self-peeling (PSP) technology, a patent-pending, bottom-up, SLA technology, was created by Kudo3D to minimize the separation force between the cured layers and the resin.

kudo3daniThe PSP process employs a flexible resin container made up of 6 different materials which work together to reduce “separation force.” The system ensures that features as fine as a strand of hair (and larger objects up to 10 inches tall) can be printed with the same machine.

The Titan uses a single stepping motor, and that simplifies and enables the operation of the Titan 1 to be more reliable and user-friendly.

Now Kudo3D says they recently “put our Titan 1 into overdrive,” and they say they were stunned by the results. They say that their original print speed estimates were conservative, but they didn’t expect what they found.

When cranked up to the new benchmark, the Titan 1 printed up to 7 inches per hour, and they demonstrated that speed by printing a two-layer geodesic sphere with a diameter of 2 inches – in just 17.5 minutes.

kudo3d_titan1The Titan 1 features patent-pending technology and the company says it’s a “versatile, high-resolution, professional-grade stereolithography printer…ideal for a host of different applications.”

The Titan 1 offers high-resolution printing from 37 to 100 µm XY resolution and boasts the tallest build envelope on the market which lets users print objects up to 10 inches tall.

And that’s not all. Kudo3D has also ramped up the speed of their production cycle to the extent that, if you purchase a Titan 1 unit today, it will be shipped to you within 2 to 3 weeks.

If you’re still not convinced, Kudo3D is offering a “Bunny Bot” sample print, designed by Vaughan Ling, which was produced at 37 µm XY resolution and 35 µm layer thickness using Spot-A Hard & Tough resin. If jewelry is more your style, Kudo3D is also offering a sample ring designed by Mariblueruby.

sample_bunny_bot-500x637The Titan 1 uses DLP-SLA with PSP  technology to print at XY resolutions of 37-100μm, is capable of minimum mechanical resolution down to 5μm, and features a maximum print volume of 7.5″ L x 4.3″ W x 10.0″ H. The Titan 1 retails for $2,999, and will begin shipping in just two to three weeks according to the company.
