The Gizmo 3D Printers have been featured in numerous 3D printing news articles around the world for its groundbreaking 3D printing speed.
A comparison showed that a 57mm x 57mm (2.24in x 2.24in) sphere took 7 hours to print on a popular FDM 3D printer while two of these spheres printed in only 19 minutes on a Gizmo 3D Printer with a super speed add-on.
One of the highlights of 2018 for Gizmo 3D Printers Pty Ltd is that the super speed add-on has now been phased out and replaced by an exciting upgrade that has vastly increased the already groundbreaking printing speed of the printers.
Wondering how much faster the Gizmo 3D Printers print with this new upgrade? It would depend on the printing method and resin you are using along with what model you are printing. However, the result of the following test is a good indicator:
In the past, when using the super speed add-on and Fun To Do Standard Blend resin, a single 100-micron layer would take 45 seconds to cure. Today, the same layer would take only 6 seconds to cure. That's seven times faster!
So what is this fantastic new upgrade on the latest Gizmo 3D Printers?
It's UV projectors and there are two to choose from:
1. The Standard Intensity 1080P Small Area UV Projector (405nm)
This projector is best suited for producing smaller, high-resolution prints that fit within a minimum projection size of 96mm x 54mm (3.77in x 2.12in) to a maximum size of 160mm x 90mm (6.29in x 3.54in).
2. The High Intensity 1080P Large Area UV Projector (405nm)
Perfect for printing large models that fit within a minimum projection size of 192mm x 108mm (7.55in x 4.25in) up to a maximum size of 400mm x 225mm (15.74in x 8.85in) faster and better.
Which UV projector will suit your 3D printing needs best? Examples of objects that have been 3D printed with an upgraded Gizmo 3D Printer include:
1. 217mm x 165mm x 94mm (8.5in x 6.5in x 3.7in) skull
Printed in only 2 hours and 30 minutes (model privately owned).
2. 350mm x 105mm x 121mm (13.8in x 4in x 4.7in) dinosaur
Printed in only 3 hours and 15 minutes (model privately owned).
The new upgrade will be especially beneficial to universities and R&D departments for research, testing, prototyping and educational purposes. Ahseuri Azri from the National University of Singapore says of his experience: "Extremely fast and reliable prints VS FDM (15hrs to 4hrs) and some SLA competitors which means that you can iterate your prototype faster." Stephanie Piper of Piper3dp.com, an expert in rapid prototyping with 3D printing and education in makerspaces says after viewing a live demo of the machines: “The difference in speed is absolutely phenomenal. Speed is actually so key in getting things right and for getting a quick turnaround of parts especially with some of the projects I’ve been working on and in the medical space.” Click here to request the latest Gizmo 3D Printers brochure or to book a Skype call to discuss your individual printing needs with a technical adviser from Gizmo 3D Printers.
I should probably mention that there has never been a better time to order a Gizmo 3D printer than now. The usual delivery time for a new Gizmo 3D printer is two to four months, but we've been busy building printers ahead of orders and have a few in stock that can be ready to ship in only four weeks. Stocks are limited - order now to get yours before Christmas!
