resin 3d printers

Stereolithography, better known by the abbreviation SLA, became the first 3D printing technology when it was imagined in 1986 by American Chuck Hull, later founder of 3D Systems. The process, which is based on the photopolymerization of a UV-sensitive resin using a laser, has since inspired new techniques and resin 3D printers including DLP, MSLA, VLM (from BCN3D), MovingLight (from Prodways) or, more recently, CLIP (from Carbon). Until a few years ago printers with these technologies were only intended for more professional environments, but with the enormous growth of the industry this technology has reached the wider public without losing print quality. Today, we wanted to compile some of the most popular resin 3D printers of 2023, from desktop printers to more professional machines. We have classified them alphabetically according to the name of the manufacturer.

    Hello Alexandrea, thanks for your article, but it is out dated. Some companies such as B9Creations (that lauched the fastest and precise DLP 3D Printer Core Series), XYZPrinting with new Nobel have printers much better than you show. Formlabs is far from being the first one, although the marketing from Formlabs is amazing.

  2. joe says:

    It would be great to have a real review with test and not just some generic comments on the specs.

  3. Fox says:

    You had no mention of EPAX company which has hands down in multiple comparisons blown out the Anycubic, while still being in the price range. And it has parallel lighting as a option for dental quality prints, all for $529 no counting any current sales.

  4. You stated the IBEE by UNIZ to be priced at (~$450). Where are you getting this sales price from?

    I am seeing it being sold for around double that. And I believe UNIZ website it selling it for around 749 Euros*?
