Resin 3D printing made better
The technology behind Zortrax Inkspire relies on a high resolution LCD screen with UV LED backlighting
to cure photopolymers layer by layer
Meet UV LCD technology
Stereolithography (SLA) and Digital Light Processing (DLP) are two traditional resin 3D printing technologies. In SLA, the precision is constant, but the speed of operation is in inverse proportion to the amount of workspace taken by the model. In DLP, the speed of operation is constant, but the precision falls as the amount of used workspace increases. Zortrax UV LCD offers constant high speed and precision regardless of how much of the workspace is in use.
Zortrax Inkspire maintains constant high speed of operation and accuracy regardless of how much of the workspace is used. With one printer making 50 to 80 parts in 51 min, 30 printers working together can offer an approximate monthly output of 650,000 to 1,000,000 parts. That’s why Zortrax Inkspire can work as a basic production unit in easily scalable 3D printing farms capable of short-series manufacturing.
Zortrax Inkspire works with a range of dedicated Zortrax Resins. External resins are fully supported, provided they can be cured by light with 405 nm wavelength. External resins are fully supported with no loss of utility, provided that they can be cured by UV light with 405 nm wavelength. Z-SUITE software that comes free with every Zortrax Inkspire 3D printer has an “External Resins” section where it is possible to manually choose all printing parameters as recommended by a third-party manufacturer to get the best results. Chosen settings can be saved as profiles and reused in the future.
Resin 3D printing is a technology perfect for professionals working in fields where very small yet incredibly detailed models are needed. The precision and speed of Zortrax Inkspire makes it a game changing tool for dentists, jewelers, and watch designers among others.
Zortrax Inkspire 3D printers offer scalable, flexible manufacturing capabilities for businesses needing small, precise components. It is a perfect tool for engineers working at research and development departments and on production lines in various industries from automotive through aerospace to consumer electronics.
Art and entertainment
Small yet beautifully designed models made on resin 3D printers are useful for artists and the entertainment industry. Detailed figurines can be made for board games. Small intricate gifts made in limited series are perfect for marketing and public relations departments.
Resin 3D printers are particularly useful in making dental casts faster and more efficient. Compared with traditional dental modeling techniques, Zortrax Inkspire allows less invasive procedures requiring little to no patient’s involvement. 3D printed models of patients’ oral cavities are used to form dental casts, prostheses, and bridges.
Modeling intricate rings, necklaces, and other jewelry requires an immense precision a good resin 3D printer can offer. 3D printed models are used in the lost wax casting process. A master model is immersed in a refractory casting material to create a mold for final jewelry items made of various metals.
