Reify Solus DLP 3d printer

There are many new DLP based SLA 3d printers and Reify3D Solus is a new contender in the arena:

Technical specifications and features based on Solus Indiegogo page:
  • build area: 14.5 x 11 cm
  • made from thick, laser-cut anodized aluminum and stainless steel
  • z axis motor has an integrated lead screw with a anti-backlash nut for layer consistency
  • Solus will work with most non-LED DLP projectors and the addition of a close-up filter and adapter, or in the case of the Acer H6510BD, straight out of the box. And since the projector is not enclosed inside of the printer, it can be used to watch movies when you're not printing.
  • As with most DLP printers, the XY build area is dependent on the XY resolution you wish to print at. The maximum XY build area is 14.5 x 11 cm and the maximum height is 20cm. The extendable legs allow for a wide range of resolutions. For the projectors the company has tested the resolutions and build areas are as follows:
SVGA (800x600)
  • 70-180 micron XY resolution
  • 5.6x4.2x20cm - 14.5x11x20cm build area
XGA (1024x768)
  • 50-140 micron XY resolution
  • 5.1x3.8x20cm - 14.5x11x20cm build area
HD (1920x1080)
  • 25-76 micron XY resolution*
  • 4.8x2.7x20cm- 14.5x8.2x20cm build area
  • *25 micron XY resolution is not possible with all HD projectors.
  • Solus has been tested with resins from MakerJuice, Spot A Materials and propriatery formulations. The resin tank is made of acrylic and the peeling material is resistant to almost any chemical, so all resins that cure around 400nm should work. There are already a great variety of material choices ranging from ones as strong as ABS to flexible, castable and even ceramic filled
  • Price: 1199 USD range on Indiegogo
