3D printer makes printing more accessible than ever before

26-11-2020 | Crowd Supply | Subs & Systems

Crowd Supply has announced the launch of the Lite3DP S1 resin micro 3D Printer. The printer is based on an Arduino board and uses mask stereolithography (MSLA) technology to deliver a lightweight, noiseless, low-cost 3D printing solution. The open-source kit is straightforward to assemble, reducing the barrier to entry for those interested in 3D printing.

The printer is a fully open-source solution that prioritises simplicity and ease-of-use. The device’s firmware, software, hardware, user guide, and 3D printing files will be accessible from the Lite3DP website. The compact, lightweight device has a form factor of 100mm x 100mm x 150mm and a total weight of fewer than 350g. The printer produces plastic parts utilising a liquid photosensitive resin, which is printed and solidified layer by layer, creating a level of detail and precision unmatched by filament 3D printers. The printer is compatible with any brand of 405nm resins and functions autonomously with a microSD card.
