Liquid Crystal PRO 3D Printer, large build areaCentral to the Liquid Crystal is the patent pending Daylight Polymer Printing Technology. By combining a high resolution LCD screen and our specially formulated polymer, designers, engineers and artists can now produce large objects in high resolution.

 

The Liquid Crystal Pro is a high resolution large format printer ideal for very large 3D printing requirements. It uses our patent pending Daylight Polymer Printing technology. Our wide range of polymers work effectively in the printer providing various properties including high strength, high toughness and high elasticity. The Liquid Crystal Pro has a 470mm x 240mm x 340mm build volume and is very attractively priced. It is ideal for architects, designers, engineers and industrial prototypers. It can produce large objects at a fraction of the cost of other 3D printers. The Pro is also ideal for making batches of smaller parts. Whether you print one instance of a part, or fill the print plate with 50, the build time will be the same.

 

Note: Clear resin is not available for Daylight printers. Resin will always be coloured.

 

LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY

Integral to the printer is the unmodified, Ultra High Definition LCD panel used to cure the resin.  The 23.8” display offers 3840 x 2160 resolution with an XY pixel size of 137 microns, giving accuracy and fine detail.  High brightness and high contrast ratio also contribute to building faithful representations of your 3D models.

STRONG AND RELIABLE DRIVE UNIT

Two maintenance-free drive units feature in the Liquid Crystal Pro.  They use 2mm pitch lead-screws and anti-backlash lead-nuts for precise, repeatable positioning.  The extruded rail profile prevents misalignment.  Combined, they provide twice the lifting power of the HR.  Enough to move large, heavy printed parts whilst preserving small, intricate details.

DURABLE VAT SYSTEM

The skin of the Liquid Crystal Pro vat is 100 micron FEP film, providing a flexible, non-stick surface to ensure good release of the printed part from the screen.  It is thick and tough enough to last for days of printing time.  Two Neoprene gaskets ensure that the vat is totally sealed.  The vat film and gaskets can be replaced as necessary to ensure consistent performance from your vat for hundreds of prints.

LARGE PRINT PLATE

The Liquid Crystal Pro print plate is made from Aluminium tooling plate to ensure flatness.  The brackets are also Aluminium, so resistant to corrosion.  The print plate is perforated to allow resin flow and roughened to ensure good print adhesion.  The build area is 470mm x 240mm, giving you room to print whole arrays of small items or really substantial pieces.

CREATION WORKSHOP 3D SOFTWARE

One year’s Creation Workshop licence is included with the Liquid Crystal Pro.  Creation Workshop is a slicer and controller application for your printer.  It is compatiable on Windows.  It allows you to import stl files, providing various functions for hollowing items, generating supports etc.  Once the model is prepared, generate slices and operate your Liquid Crystal Pro from the same interface

AFFORDABLE DAYLIGHT RESINS

Our latest daylight resins offer a range of hardness and flexibility, as well as colour.  The Liquid Crystal Pro is supplied with 5kg of Daylight Pro Firm resin in grey.  This is an ideal formulation for printing large items, making full use of the build volume.  All resin is water washable so there is no need for solvents in post processing.

DAYLIGHT PRO FIRM

Pro Firm daylight photopolymer is ideal for making hard objects that you want to be hard but with the ability to compress under moderate to high force. When the objects are compressed or bent, they will return to their original state. The resin has be especially formulated for use on the Liquid Crystal Pro printer for large scale printing though can be used on other Liquid Crystal printers. The objects created will exhibit low tensile shear properties similar to that of the Firm
