BOOM! An Industrial Grade 4K Top-Down DLP 3D Printer just Hit the Market for Less than US $15 000


If you've been following Gizmo 3D Printers on social media, you'd know we're dropping BIG, mind-blowing 3D printing news today. Those subscribed to Gizmo 3D News would be the first to know. Well here it is...

BOOM! The first 4K Gizmo 3D Printer just hit the market for Less than US $15 000!

Just so we can all fully grasp the magnitude of this incredible resin 3D printing news, let's start with the basics first.

What makes a 4K DLP printer exceptional?

The superpower of printing on such a high-resolution resin 3D printer is the ability to achieve much smoother and finer prints.

Using a projection area size (refer to the image below to understand what a projection area is) of 192mm x 108mm as an example, the difference between printing with or without a 4K projector would be DOUBLE the resolution! The resolution of a Gizmo 3D Printer with an HD projector would be 100um XY. At the same projection area size of 192mm x 108, the resolution of a Gizmo 3D Printer with a 4K projector would be 50um XY.

High Quality, Low Maintenance, Professional Results

Beware that not all 4K projectors in the market are the same quality. We are known for building our machines with quality parts; it's one of the main reasons we pride ourselves on manufacturing some of the best industrial resin 3D printers in the market.

The Many Benefits of Gizmo 3D's Top-Down Approach Versus a 4K Bottom-Up

Where most other 4K resin 3D printers are bottom-up, the Gizmo 3D Printers are top-down. The top-down printing method has many cost and time-saving advantages over bottom-up. These include:

  • No stress placed on parts printing Parts produced with a bottom-up printer get exposed to stresses during the printing process. The part detaches from the bottom surface of the vat every time a new layer is printed. The suction force required to do so can cause deformations in the print or detach it from the build plate entirely, which risks breaking it, wasting resin and scratching the Teflon or PDMS layer at the base of the vat. It doesn't help that prints printed on a bottom-up printer are working against gravity to hang upside down when printed. The bigger the print, the heavier the pull. To combat this, users often have to add extra supports to help keep the part attached securely to the build plate. With the top down Gizmo 3D printer, a 3D print sits on top of the build plate while being formed. It's never exposed to suction forces or fighting against gravity to stay attached to the build plate. Therefore extra support structures aren't required and there's no risk that the print might fall and break. The Gizmo 3D Printers print without the use of a silicone layer or film, which eliminates the risk of it scratching and affecting print quality.

  • No risk of inconsistencies in the print due to light deficiencies During the printing process, some hardened resin residue sinks to the bottom of the vat. As the light source of a bottom-up printer sits below the vat, the light can become blocked by the residue during the printing process. If any light is blocked and unable to cure the resin, it causes weaknesses and inconsistencies in the print. With the top down Gizmo 3D printer, the light source that cures the resin sits at the top of the printer. The unwanted resin bits sink to the bottom of the vat and does not interfere with the printing process.

  • Low maintenance With bottom-up machines, the vat needs to be emptied between prints to clean out the unwanted resin bits or residue mentioned in the previous point. This takes time that could be spent more productively. With the top-down Gizmo 3D printer, users can skip that tedious step and continue printing one print after the other as the vat doesn't need cleaning in between prints.

  • Safer to use Top-down projectors are safer and more comfortable to use than the lasers or projectors of bottom-up machines because the light doesn't shine directly into your eyes.

The Cost of a 4K DLP Projector 3D Printer

It's important to look at the true cost of a 4K resin printer by looking at the cost over time. Also, look at the time spent on maintenance as time is money if you do 3D printing as a profession. Not doing so are some of the biggest mistakes people make when buying a resin 3D printer.

Our Irresistible Offer

Where most industrial grade 4K DLP printers can cost more than US $50 000, it's now possible to own our smallest and most basic 4K Gizmo 3D Printer for less than USD $13 000. More sizes of 4K Gizmo 3D printers are also available.

FAQ:

What makes a 4K DLP printer better than a 4K LCD printer?

Don't make the mistake to think that a 4K LCD printer is a better option because it's cheaper. It's only cheaper when you purchase the machine, but the maintenance over time will cost you more in the long run. This is because LCD screens don't last long and need to be replaced often. In comparison, a DLP projector can last thousands of hours. Skip ongoing costs and time spent on maintenance when getting a 4K DLP 3D printer instead.

Also, LCD machines are always bottom-up 3D printers, so in choosing an LCD 3D printer, you would miss out on the many advantages of a top-down 3D printer mentioned earlier.

If I already own a Gizmo 3D Printer, can I just order the 4K projector?

Gizmo 3D customers can upgrade their 3D printers with a 4K projector for USD $8500 +potage. The price includes the projector, projector mounts, and access to an easy-to-follow installation video.

Will a 4K DLP projector increase the print speed of a Gizmo 3D Printer? We've doubled our already ground-breaking printing speed since launching in 2016 by introducing UV projectors to our range of 3D printers. Through either adding one of our standard UV projectors or this new 4K UV projector, the Gizmo 3D Printers print up to 33% faster than the average 3D printer in the market.
