Printing speed explained when printing continuously

Updated: Jul 15


We print different objects at different speeds and at different projection areas. Our maximum print speed is advertised to be 3mm per minute, but nothing stops you from printing faster or slow. Printing faster than the rated speed will cause more errors in the print, but that might be fine for what you are doing.

Numbers are from experience and not documented while printing. Printing done using FunToDo Industrial Blend Red.

When talking about failures it would mean holes in the parts.

Single projector

Continuous printing can be done with a single projector at projection sizes of 70mm x 39mm to 140mm x 79mm.

Standard speed printing can be done at projection sizes of 70mm x 39mm to 400mm x 225mm

Projection area 70mm x 39mm

0.5mm per minute

Printing at 0.5mm per minute will make the parts very strong and failure rate will be low to none. Might be required when printing up to the edges of the build plate.

1mm per minute

This is a good speed especially when printing objects in the middle of the build plate. Failure rate is low. Parts have a good strength to them. Not overly strong.

1.5mm per minute

Pushing the limits of the projector really. Parts are flimsy and weak and could have failures in the prints.

Projection area 140mm x 79mm

0.5mm per minute

This is a good speed especially when printing objects in the middle of the build plate. Failure rate is low. Parts have a good strength to them. Not overly strong.

1mm per minute

Pushing the limits of the projector really. Parts are flimsy and weak and could have failures in the prints.

With super speed - aka dual projector

Printing can be done with dual projectors at projection sizes of 110mm x 62mm to 325mm x 183mm.

Projection area 110mm x 62mm

2mm per minute

Printing at this speed will make the parts very strong and failure rate will be low to none. Might be required when printing up to the edges of the build plate.

3mm per minute

This is a good speed especially when printing objects in the middle of the build plate. Failure rate is low. Parts have a good strength to them. Not overly strong.

4mm per minute

Pushing the limits of the projector really. Parts are flimsy and weak and could have failures in the prints.

Projection area 325mm x 183mm

0.5mm per minute

This is a good speed especially when printing objects in the middle of the build plate. Failure rate is low. Parts have a good strength to them. Not overly strong.

1mm per minute

Pushing the limits of the projector really. Parts are flimsy and weak and could have failures in the prints.
