Gizmo DLP 3D Printer Use case: Porcelite Ceramic Resin (part 2)

As mentioned in part 1 of this blog series (click here to view it), we've been helping university student, Andrew, test print shells with Porcelite ceramic resin.

As the tests were successful, Andrew has asked us to proceed with printing 50 copies of the shells.

Gizmo 3D Printers are ideal for (what we call) mini-manufacturing runs like these.

Features that make the Gizmo DLP 3D printer the best choice resin 3D printer for printing with porcelain ceramic resin include:

1. Top-down Printing

Being a top-down 3D printer, the prints printed on a Gizmo 3D Printer don't have to work against gravity to stay attached to the build plate during the printing process.

Also, hardened resin bits that form during the printing process on a Gizmo 3D printer sink to the bottom of the vat, where they cannot affect the success of the print.

In contrast, if printing on a bottom-up 3D printer, you risk hardened, free-flowing resin bits building up and blocking the light from setting the resin during the printing process, which causes weak areas in the print. It is also why bottom-up resin 3D printers need cleaning frequently whilst the low maintenance Gizmo 3D Printers are much more time and cost-efficient.

2. No Film or Silicone Layer

Unlike a bottom-up 3D printer, the Gizmo 3D printer doesn't require a film or silicone layer that could become cloudy, tear, or get scratched, affecting the print quality and taking time to replace.

This feature makes the Gizmo 3D printer much for efficient and cost-effective to run. Click here for a detailed comparison.

3. Compatibility with hundreds of third-party resins to suit your budget

Some resin 3D printer manufacturers limit users of their printers as to what resins they can use. Often their customers can only use resins by the manufacturer, which can be much more costly than other third-party resins.

It's just one of the top 10 things people dislike about their resin 3D printers (and why they want a Gizmo 3D Printer) - click here to read about the other 9.

Like Andrew, many of our customers have achieved their dream results with Tethon's Porcelite ceramic resin and appreciate being able to use third-party resins.
