Integrator is DLP 3D printer based on SLA (stereolithography). Stereolithography, also known as Photo-Solidification, is a 3D printer stacking up resin layer by layer using ultraviolet light. 

In comparison with the most well-known FDM and FFF 3D printers, Integrator is far more precise and less time-consuming. In addition, Integrator is characterized by a movable beam projector. Users can produce the best quality printing output by controlling its position according to their own preference. 

The current 3D market today is divided by two groups: one for advanced users and another for general users. Integrator targets both of these users. First of all, its high printing resolution brings the most enjoyable 3D printing experience to advanced users like 3D character designers, jewelry designers, engineers, artists, researchers and etc. Secondly, Integrator is suitable for the general users due to its low price. This advantage will bring satisfaction to customers who seek high quality 3D printers with affordable price.

Features

Extremely High XY Resolution

Integrator is the fastest and the most precise Desktop 3D printer on the market today. Low resolution makes the surface uneven and rough. However, Integrator can offer satisfactory outputs due to its high resolution.    

Compare with Competitors

Integrator is equipped with a projector of Full HD 1920x1080, and achieved high resolution of maximum xy 25 microns through lens modification. XY resolution is 25 microns and Z resolution is 10 microns, which is 30% higher capability in comparison to other competitors. This high quality resolution allows you to produce extremely intricate and complex designs.

4.7" Eiffel tower by Pranav Panchal (x, y 65um, z 40 um)

The above photo displays a model of the Eiffel Tower produced by the Integrator. You can clearly see the precision and clarity in every little detail (i.e. railings) without any blockages. 

 The current SLA 3D printer technology is divided into three- Laser-SLA, DLP-SLA and LCD-SLA methods.

Laser-method works by moving a laser. In this method, there’s a limit to increase x, y resolution due to low resolution of the mechanical element. Also, when printing a large amount at one time, laser source should give out light to each and every part. This slows down the printing speed. 

LCD-SLA method is up-to-date technology using LCD panel. It will likely be the leading-edge of the printing technology. However, there still remains need for improvements in terms of printing quality.

Lastly, DLP method (Integrator) ensures high XY resolution by adjusting the focus of the distance of a beam projector. In this method, when printing large amount of products, it does not need extra time for hardening each layer. Therefore, its printing speed does not slow down.

 Eventually, we are confident that DLP method can provide the most superior printing quality amongst all other methods.

Competitor's Eiffel tower
Competitor's Eiffel tower

The photo above is a model of the Eiffel Tower created by a competitor. The clarity of the railings are somewhat satisfactory in this model. However, the “X” bars on the four legs of the model are not clearly hollowed out, and are generally lower in quality.

On the other hand, Integrator managed to capture even the smallest of details within the model (i.e. the “X” bars on the legs).

 Industrial Grade LM Stage

Linear stage module is the crucial element in SLA 3D printers, because it determines the printing quality.

Usually, high resolution linear stage is for industrial usage and very expensive. For this reason, most of the desktop 3D printers on the market today are obliged to install low cost linear stage (Ball bushing, Shaft or only one LM Guide).

However, low-cost linear stage would directly result in impairing printing quality due to its poor durability. For addressing this issue, our team designed and created our own linear stage. Our effort reduced unit cost without sacrificing its precision and performance.

 Highly Adaptable for Various Users

Most of SLA 3D printers do not allow for users to adjust the printing size and its precision freely. However, Integrator is designed to easily adjust the position of the beam projector for various purposes. Its flexibility permits users to actualize a wide range of printing sizes. Therefore, Integrator is highly adaptable for various users.

 Light Barrier & Tilt VAT

During the process of SLA 3D printers based on photo-solidificated resin, the afterglow from the beam projector hardens the resin in the resin tank. Consequently, it damages the bottom of the resin tank and impairs the quality of printing output. To prevent this problem, Integrator installed an automatic light barrier. This barrier prevents resin from hardening, so it ensures a long-term use of the resin.

Also, when printing for long hours, it is natural for the projector light to be shot at a same spot again and again. This repetitive shooting makes resin stagnant and causes a gradual hardening. It causes more adhesion than necessary between the bottom and the object. Eventually, this excessive adhesion damages the bottom and deteriorates the printing quality. And in worst case, it could induce printing failure.

On the other hand, Integrator tilts resin tank to mix resin. This ensures you to maintain high printing quality during long printing period.

Resin Tank, Teflon-Coated PDMS 

We considerably reduce fog phenomenon and bottom damage by coating Teflon on PDMS. So it is easy to use and even though you are not an expert, there’s no problem. Concerning resin tank, the most of our competitors use acrylic. On the other hand, Integrator’s resin tank is made with tempered glass. Therefore, it can be used semipermanently as long as you replace PDMS and Teflon film.

Anti UV Polycarbonate Cover

Integrator is hard-wearing and durable because it was produced with anti UV polycarbonate cover. Polycarbonate has impact strength coming to 30 times of acrylic and 250 times of glass. It is so strong that it can be used as bulletproof material. 

 Also, its UV blocking ratio is over 99% and visible ray transmittance is over 85%. Thanks to this feature, you can install the Integrator everywhere exposed to UV rays (ex. around window... except direct rays of the sun)) 

 Furthermore, Integrator has a transparent cover. It allows you to observe the printing process during your working hours.

Anodized Full Aluminum Body

Integrator is very solid and durable- as it is produced with the aluminum processed by CNC. In addition, the anodized aluminum creates an elegant and chic atmosphere,not only on your desk but also in your work place.  

 High Performance CPU

High performance CPU CORTEX-M3 72MHz of the Integrator allows for a much faster printing speed than any other 3D printers.

Risks and challenges

Creating SLA 3D printers requires advanced knowledge in a variety of technical fields. Thus, it is a great challenge to produce and to commercialize them.
CRAFT3D consists of professional engineers with 4-7 years or more of work experience. We have been deeply involved in system design, system development and its application.

Also, delivering products on time is one of the biggest challenges.

Especially, the production of linear stage module and CNC processed goods takes longer than other parts. To avoid this potential risk, we looked for several supply companies in advance and chose two of them as our main back-up suppliers.

In addition, for reducing the waiting time, we have pre-purchased some parts like motors, linear guides and ball screws in advance. This preparation will help with on-time delivery and ensure smooth shipping process.

If order surpasses more than 200, we will take prompt measures by organizing additional teams in order to minimize the time for assembly and shipping.
