3D printer Zortrax Inkspire is a resin desktop 3D printer working in UV LCD technology. It’s designed around a high-resolution LCD screen* with UV LED backlighting that ensures every part of a layer is exposed to the same amount of UV light to uniformly cure the resin. A single pixel measures just 50×50 microns while minimal layer hight is only 25 microns. That’s why the smallest details Zortrax Inkspire can 3D print are invisible to the naked eye. This means it offers quality of prints surpassing leading SLA while working up to 8x faster. Zortrax Inkspire is perfect for engineering, short and medium series manufacturing as well as precision modeling in dental prosthetics or jewelry design. The printer works with dedicated Zortrax Resins. Third-party resins are also supported, provided they can be cured by light with 405 nm wavelength.
Meet UV LCD technology in 3D printer
SLA and DLP are traditional resin 3D printing technologies. An SLA printer works at constant precision but the more of its workspace is used, the more it slows down. In DLP machines, the speed is constant but precision decreases when workspace usage grows. Zortrax UV LCD maintains both high speed and precision at all times.
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.
The XY resolution is 50×50 microns with minimal layer height of only 25 microns.
High speed of printing is maintained regardless of how much of the workspace is used.
Industrial build quality ensures consistent dimensional accuracy over multiple prints.
Easy supports removal
Supports can get additional UV light exposure to make them harder and easier to remove.
Wide resins compatibility
All available resins that can be cured by light with 405 nm wavelength are supported.
Flexible in-house production
The Inkspire easily scales up to work in 3D printing farms offering medium to high scale manufacturing capabilities. Such farms can make end-use products or serve as a support of traditional production lines.
Cost-efficient rapid prototyping
Multiple versions of prototypes can be cost-efficiently made in one printing session. This way, they can quickly undergo comparative evaluation which saves costs by shortening the development cycle.
Applications of 3D printer
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 engineers, dentists and jewelers among others.
Resin can quickly and cost-efficiently print dental impressions, surgical guides, and temporary crowns or bridges.
3D printed jewelry models can be used as investment casting patterns. They are also useful in customer consultation and fitting.
Small, intricately designed 3D printed parts can be used in various fields of precision engineering such as electronics design.
3D printing of complex organic shapes is commonly used for making early concept models in production of feature movies and TV shows.
