- Designed by Dean Piper
- The mUVe 1 is an open-source, low-cost stereo-lithographic 3D printer which uses 405nm UV laser to build parts' layers one at a time.
- No part costs more than $20 to make or replace, except the reservoir which costs around $50 pre-assembled with non-stick surface
- uses any Arduino based controller as long as it supports the RepRap GCODE standards. It supports Marlin firmware and you have the ability to address a fan or other accessory through code
- MicroRax frame making it modular and expandable
- 8mm hardened steel linear rods and bearings for inexpensive smooth motion
- build space: 145mm x 145mm x 185mm
- Standard RepRap Electronics, Marlin firmware required so far. Standard Cartesian control system.
- Laser Iris Diaphragm allows hugely scalable resolution, .1mm is tested and working.
- 20mW laser is relatively low power and safer than some alternatives.
- Replaceable non-stick coating on durable glass ensures long reservoir life.
- Heated Reservoir
- Outside dimensions: approx. 330mm x 330mm x 450mm or 12.75" x 12.75" X 18"
- Priced at $1,699. Kit includes everything, the printer, 1 gallon of resin, laser cut case and tools
mUVe had a successful Indiegogo campaign:
