The low-cost professional-grade printer uses stereolithography (SLA) technology which delivers a smoother finish and builds layers that are less visible compared to alternative low-cost 3D printer technologies such as Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF).
Ideal for small, precise and detail-rich casting patterns, the ProJet 1200 is factory calibrated for reliable and accurate operation.
The printer uses 3D Systems’ VisiJet® FTX Green material – a durable and rigid material that was created especially for the ProJet 1200 for high-quality plastic prototyping and casting patterns.
“The micro-SLA ProJet 1200 integrates enhanced LED DLP (Digital Light Processing) laser technology to print 30-micron (0.03mm) layers at a resolution of 56 microns (effective 585 dpi), which results in extremely fine feature detail and smoothness and makes it suitable for building production components such as electronic connectors. The printer also boasts a diverse range of uses outside of engineering markets, such as jewellery making or in dental applications,” the company revealed in a media release.
Easy to install, the printer connects to LAN networks and comes with a built-in STL CAD file format verification and requires minimum maintenance.
“Designed for bench-top use, the printer measures 230 x 230 x 356mm and offers a build volume of 43 x 27 x 150mm and a vertical build speed of 14mm per hour. The printer integrates a UV curing station and an all-in-one material cartridge with built-in print window,” it says in the media release.
The 3D Systems ProJet 1200 and VisiJet FTX Green cartridges are available now from RS stock in EMEA and Asia Pacific regions with prices starting at $AUD 6,950.
