In this blog, I will compare the cost and true speed of the GiziMax Ultimate 3D printer with that of a well known laser based SLA over a period of 3 years. I am using values from the website of the well known laser based SLA printers (as shown today, on Nov 4, 2017 - at the time that this post was written). These calculations do not include postage. Cost comparison: Laser based SLA VS GiziMax Ultimate Let's assume we use 2 liters of resin per month for a period of 3 years.
There are certain rules you need to follow to have a perfect print. This post will be updated over time as we and users find the rules. - Printing a pyramid will cause layering. You can also word this differently saying that when you print a wall at an angle, the side of the wall that faces away from the build plate will have a rough surface. Examples of this would be the top of a head and of course a pyramid. - Printing a boat hull will give you a smooth surface. Another
Top down DLP 3D printers normally need a lot of resin to fill the vat. I am always on the lookout to find a way to reduce the resin required to fill a vat. In the past I tested floating resin on salt water, but it had too many downsides. I read about using glycerine at that point in time and also other chemicals, but I just didn't have time to do more tests. I heard about it again this week and decided to find some glycerine and start testing. I had some FunToDo Industrial
I, as probably many others, thought that more UV power will give a faster printing speed when printing continuously. I think that might not be 100% true. There are limits. When printing continuously the projector is always displaying an image. This means it is always hardening the resin. Less UV means the light will penetrate less and more UV means the light will penetrate deeper. If it penetrates less it means a thin layer of resin will be hardened with resin still flowi
