Unveiling “Solidator” – a new Stereolithography DLP Desktop 3D Printer with extraordinarily large build volume, super-high resolution and high printing speed on kickstarter.com
JACKSONVILLE, Florida. December 10, 2013 – Florida-headquartered technology startup tangible engineering USA Corporation today unveiled its “Solidator”- a new 3D desktop printer built to print large parts quickly, with super high resolution and high printing speed.
Product Website: www.solidator.com
The new 3D printer has the maximum resolution, speed and most compact design you can possibly get when printing paper-sized 3D objects. The patent-pending design using DLP stereolithography technology provides high resolution on a large print bed and allows you to create 3D objects in a fraction of the time—right on your desk,” said Tim Fischer (President & CEO of tangible engineering USA Corporation).
The new 3D printer called “Solidator” uses stereolithography and Projector DLP technology to turn liquid plastic (similar to nail polish) into a solid 3D object with just visible light. The 3D object is created layer by layer upside down. Solidator is capable of creating a single layer of an object at a 100 micron resolution in just 10 seconds independent of object shape or number of objects placed on the build platform. This way, Solidator can create 6 Eiffel Towers at 20 cm height (7.9”) in only 5.5 hours.
“The sheer size of the build area and the build volume is massive by comparison. The printer features a 280x210x200 mm (11.02" x 8.26" x 7.87") build volume. The resolution achievable with the printer is impressive as it creates 3D voxels with a size of 0.27 mm by 0.27 mm with a 0.1 mm layer height (0.01063" x 0.01063" x 0.00393").
The company is launching the product today on kickstarter.com:
