High Performance but Affordable Price

Understand that good printing quality is what you are priority concern, any other subsidiary functions will make the cost higher, as a result, you have to pay more. We’ve considered these and finally designed the printer structure as simple as possible. This is why the price of 1st batch we do as low as possible to thanks for every early bird backer. Estimated retailer’s price will be around US$3,000 up. We tapped the top engineering, a printer that combines high printing resolution, and a price tag that meet with the requirements for artists, designers, businesses and hobbyists who are serious about creating high-quality, 3D-printed items.

Ultra-Fine Resolution

LCD screen on "D2K Plus" allows for pin-point accuracy, which is capable to print features as fine as X: 70, Y: 23 microns, making your finishing touches easy and less time consuming than with other 3D printers. This is a process of printing 2D layers over and over, stacking them on top of each other. As there is no mechanically moving parts, XY printing is defined by an UV-LCD screen instead, which is 2560 x 1600 dpi - 2K resolution. It's essential for you to know the difference when you're evaluating 3D printers.  This allows you to produce a very detailed object. 

"D2K Plus" 3D printer has been well developed already and prepared for every single backer, no need to wait too long as we are everything ready to proceed with 1st batch production once the campaign time’s up, estimated that the 1st batch ship date will be at the end of April or latest end of May, 2017. 

Full-metal Body: Say no to Deformation

The major body and components are made of solid Aluminum, processed by CNC, along with black exterior, making it low profile and steady, but also luxurious. In addition, the driving Z axis is secured by a solid aluminum pile, thickness up to 35 x 80mm that provides super steady printing environment, avoids vibration and deformation. It is also worth mentioning that the full-metal body contributes to minimize the gap between the parts, and thus to prevent any possible distortion during printing.

Inexpensive Resin, Just print it!

Except for our Custom Resins, Castable Resin is avaliable now, excellent for jewelry designers who do lost-wax casting. We’ve priced the resin to be affordable (even after the campaign on Kickstarter is over), so you can continue to print to your heart’s content. 1 Liter Resin costs only US$56. You can re-use the remaining resin liquid, just fill it back to the bottle from resin tray, particularly you would not use it in 2 days. 

Remark: Shipping fee is not included.  We will check the lowest cost from couriers for the backers and then get back to all of you. 

What pushes us to develop D2K Plus & Who We Are

We're a team of passionate designer and product developer that love gadgets and well-made objects, boundless category, only if the product we are capable to achieve. 

Risks and challenges

The only risk of project are the timing and the number of backers. The lead time is also our main concern, of course the sufficient number of backers are also very important to meet with the minimum production quantities. As per our last campaign in 2016, as promised, we shipped out all rewards on time without delay. Anyway, we would keep track of everything for the backers!
