    It is not very clear whether it is a SLA or DLP printer. It is either SLA or DLP, it can't be both?

    Hi Kilroy,

    It actually is both.

    Here is an excerpt from our blog comparing DLP v. Laser for SLA printers:

    SLA stands for stereolithography. In this method of additive manufacturing, a 3D printed object is built layer-by-layer using a liquid resin (photopolymer) that is cured using UV light. What differentiates the Titan 1 from other SLA printers, is that the Titan 1 uses Digital Light Processing (DLP) to shine UV light via a projector.

    The projector remains completely stationary during printing (and it is important that it doesn’t move or else the layers won’t align properly), which means there are few moving parts and little machine maintenance required. The only moving part is the stepper motor that lifts the build platform as the model grows after each layer is cured.

    Please let me know if you have any more questions.

    Hello. I have a question, very similar to Kilroy's, so I post it here.

    I already have Acer P1500 DLP projector, and want to turn it to 3d printer. I need some cheap DLP 3d printer kit. By cheap, I mean price around $1000. I think, that mUVe 1.1 might be a good choice. Actually, can't find any good alternative to it. What do you think?

    kilroy,

    I don't have DLP printer, but I believe each printer cures at a particular wavelength (or range of wavelengths), and you would obtain resin which crosslinks at the wavelength(s) which your machine produces. This should be detailed in the machine's specifications. I would not recommend a machine which does not publish this information.

    We use the FSL3D Pegasus Touch with much success http://eezitec.com/products/fsl3d-pegasus-touch-laser

    Thank you, Davo.

    So we need to check that both Resin and the machine are compatible. Could someone upload a screenshot of how I can tweak the wavelength? I don't own a DLP / SLA printer yet, so any software will be fine. Which settings do I need to be looking at?

    Thanks.

    Hi, may I get some experience on your form 1? because I plan to get this printer recently. Many thanks

    hi, I also checked some reviews, and Kudo 3D should be good, but the machine looks a little weird, anyone has some points as me?

    Which printer did you go with in the end??
