Resin UV LCD 3D printer
up to 8x faster and up to 9x more precise
than leading SLA 3D printers
Resin 3D printing made better
The technology behind Zortrax Inkspire relies on a high resolution LCD screen with UV LED backlighting
to cure photopolymers layer by layer
Meet UV LCD technology
Stereolithography (SLA) and Digital Light Processing (DLP) are two traditional resin 3D printing technologies. In SLA, the precision is constant, but the speed of operation is in inverse proportion to the amount of workspace taken by the model. In DLP, the speed of operation is constant, but the precision falls as the amount of used workspace increases. Zortrax UV LCD offers constant high speed and precision regardless of how much of the workspace is in use.
Zortrax Inkspire maintains constant high speed of operation and accuracy regardless of how much of the workspace is used. With one printer making 50 to 80 parts in 51 min, 30 printers working together can offer an approximate monthly output of 650,000 to 1,000,000 parts. That’s why Zortrax Inkspire can work as a basic production unit in easily scalable 3D printing farms capable of short-series manufacturing.
Zortrax Inkspire works with a range of dedicated Zortrax Resins. External resins are fully supported, provided they can be cured by light with 405 nm wavelength.
Available Zortrax Resins: PRO, FLEXIBLE, DENTAL MODEL, BASIC
Zortrax Resin PRO
Zortrax Resin PRO is an epoxy-based resin with improved impact and bending resistance in comparison with Zortrax Resin Basic. It offers short curing times, high degree of detail, and ease of post-processing.
Zortrax Resin FLEXIBLE
Strength and flexibility
Zortrax Resin FLEXIBLE is an elastic, epoxy based resin that comes back to its original shape after bending. It offers smooth surfaces, high level of detail, and sharp edges.
Zortrax Resin DENTAL MODEL
Zortrax Resin DENTAL MODEL is a precise resin with a gypsum-like texture designed for digital dentistry. It offers very high level of detail sufficient for accurate modeling of teeth. Not meant for intraoral use.
Zortrax Resin BASIC
Zortrax Resin BASIC is an epoxy-based resin dedicated for Zortrax Inkspire. It guarantees impeccable details and great mechanical properties. It’s also durable, easy to paint and needs short curing times.
External resins are fully supported with no loss of utility, provided that they can be cured by UV light with 405 nm wavelength. Z-SUITE software that comes free with every Zortrax Inkspire 3D printer has an “External Resins” section where it is possible to manually choose all printing parameters as recommended by a third-party manufacturer to get the best results. Chosen settings can be saved as profiles and reused in the future.
Resin 3D printing is a technology perfect for professionals working in fields where very small yet incredibly detailed models are needed. The precision and speed of Zortrax Inkspire makes it a game changing tool for dentists, jewelers, and watch designers among others.
Zortrax Inkspire 3D printers offer scalable, flexible manufacturing capabilities for businesses needing small, precise components. It is a perfect tool for engineers working at research and development departments and on production lines in various industries from automotive through aerospace to consumer electronics.
Art and entertainment
Small yet beautifully designed models made on resin 3D printers are useful for artists and the entertainment industry. Detailed figurines can be made for board games. Small intricate gifts made in limited series are perfect for marketing and public relations departments.
Resin 3D printers are particularly useful in making dental casts faster and more efficient. Compared with traditional dental modeling techniques, Zortrax Inkspire allows less invasive procedures requiring little to no patient’s involvement. 3D printed models of patients’ oral cavities are used to form dental casts, prostheses, and bridges.
Modeling intricate rings, necklaces, and other jewelry requires an immense precision a good resin 3D printer can offer. 3D printed models are used in the lost wax casting process. A master model is immersed in a refractory casting material to create a mold for final jewelry items made of various metals.
From art to engineering, Zortrax Inkspire is perfect in all applications where superior precision makes the difference. With 50×50 microns pixel size and 25 microns minimal layer height, it can 3D print models with no visible layering or vertical lines. The human eye can’t see individual pixels when the image has more than 336 pixels per inch. Pixel density in models 3D printed on Zortrax Inkspire exceeds this value regardless of the viewing angle.
Attention to detail
Zortrax Inkspire has been designed to 3D print highly detailed models. It builds models out of tiny cuboids, measuring 50x50x25 microns.Because of these microscopic dimensions, Zortrax Inkspire can be up to 9x more precise than the circular brush of leading SLA 3D printers, especially when printing rectangular shapes. Check Inkspire’s precision in comparison to leading SLA 3D printer below.
