For a bottom up stererolithography 3D printer, a cured resin layer may stick to the vat floor and be hard to separate. Silicone is often used as the vat floor because of its elasticity that can facilitate the separation of cured layers. However, the resins will gradually react with silicone and the silicone will turn [...]
What exactly is background curing and what is the impact of it on your print? Background exposure, as the name suggests, is the light that appears in the background. Ideally, the background should be fully black with no light at all. However, for DLP, there always is residual light scattering back into the lens and [...]
Being one of the core components in the 4th industrial revolution, 3D printing has evolved in such an astonishing speed. However, the technology behind each printer is so diverted that some of the first time users or those who want to get their very first 3D printer might not be that confident in identifying the [...]
DM1: Prototyped on the Titan 1! Erik Moon, one of our Titan 1 Kickstarter backers and owner of Decadent Minimalist, has just released his second Kickstarter campaign, DM1: Titanium and Carbon Fiber Wallet! The DM1 is truly a minimalist design. With no straps, no clips, no clasps, hinges, or magnets, the DM1 is just one [...]

SLA 3D Printing: Difference in Laser and DLP Light Pattern Generation What makes the Titan 1 different from other SLA 3D printers? But first, what is SLA 3D printing? SLA stands for stereolithography. In this method of additive manufacturing, a 3D printed object is built layer-by-layer using a liquid resin (photopolymer) that is cured using [...]
