Kudo3D Titan 1 high performance DLP SLA 3D printer

Kudo3D Titan 1 is a new high performance DLP SLA 3D printer in price range of Makerbot Replicator 2.

Kudo3D Titan 1 key features:
  • Stereolithography (SLA) printing technology: Bottom-up SLA configuration
  • Patent Pending PSP (Passive Self-Peeling) technology: 
  • Flexible resin container (VAT) design
  • Enhanced printing performance and quality
  • Simplified printer structure
  • Superior reliability: modularized with heavy duty high quality components
  • Adjustable DLP to optimize printing performance
  • Compatible to all SLA photoresins sensitive to 400nm light

Kudo3D developed and plans to patent passive self-peeling (PSP) technology:
Passive self-peeling (PSP) technology is a patent pending bottom up SLA technology created by Kudo3D to minimize the separation force between cured layers and the bottom of the resin container. PSP employs a flexible resin container consisting of 5 different materials to enable a self-peeling process that minimizes the separation force. Therefore, feature as tiny as a strand of hair or a big object as tall as 9.5 inches can be printed on the same machine. Equipped with PSP, the printer needs only one stepping motor. As a result, the printer is simpler, more reliable and easy to use. Since our PSP technology employed Teflon, our container is immune to the attack of more reactive resin that happens to most of our competitors. Users can use materials from any vendors by setting proper exposure time.
