Hot off the trail of their One DLP 3D printer debuted last year, Taiwan-based Phrozen is back, this time with Make, “the world’s most compact, reliable, and precise LCD light-cured resin 3D printer.” If that sounds like a mouthful, you’re right, but over 240 backers have already put Phrozen over their Kickstarter campaign target goal of $30K with over $250K funded to bring the 3D printer to market.
The machine uses LCD lighting to cure Phrozen-spec or third-party resin at what they state is ten times faster than SLA-based printers and sports a resolution up to 2K and a 60% higher contrast ratio over traditional FDM boxes.
Phrozen updated their features over the One 3D Printer with a larger build volume of 7.5 X 4.7 X 7.9-inches with a print speed of 40mm per hour- meaning you can churn-out fifteen 1.2 X 1.2 X 1.2-inch objects every 60-minutes.
The Make is outfitted with a Raspberry Pi SBC that controls the printer’s linear guide and gap-eliminator screw for precision movement along the Z-axis. Double cooling fans, front panel LED indicator (print monitoring) and Teflon-lined resin tank round-out the Make’s hardware features. On the software side, it uses a modified version of nanoDLP with wireless support for laptop and mobile devices.
Phrozen’s Make 3D printer comes in two sizes with the original featuring the same hardware as the XL version but with a decreased build volume of 4.8 X 2.7 X 5.5-inches and lowered XY resolution of 47 microns VS. 75. The UV LED array is also smaller as well- 50W instead of the 100W array the XL packs.
Unfortunately, the early bird prices for both versions have sold out, but you can still grab one for a pledge of $939 (original) and $1,399 (XL) respectively, both with an expected delivery date in July with resin sold separately.
