A very powerful specification in figuring out an MSLA (Masked Stereolithography) 3D printer’s high quality is pixel measurement. That could be a operate of the LCD panel’s decision and measurement, which is why we’re seeing an arms race amongst 3D printer producers to provide MSLA fashions with ultra-high-resolution screens. To push out the competitors, Phrozen created the brand new Sonic Mighty 8K and can take preorders beginning on April twenty first.
We just lately reviewed the Phrozen Sonic Mini 8K and have been very impressed with the printer’s capabilities. Like that mannequin, the brand new Phrozen Sonic Mighty 8K has a excessive decision LCD panel (7,680 x 4,320). However the Mini had a smaller 7.1″ panel to prioritize advantageous particulars at a pixel measurement of 22µm. The Mighty prioritizes giant elements as an alternative, with a ten” LCD leading to a construct quantity of 218 x 123 x 235mm — virtually 3 times bigger than the Mini.
Despite the fact that the Phrozen Sonic Mighty 8K has a really giant construct quantity, that 8K LCD panel means the pixel measurement remains to be very small (28µm) in comparison with most competing MSLA resin 3D printers. This provides you the flexibility to print elements which are each giant and really detailed.
It ought to print rapidly, too. Phrozen claims that the Sonic Mighty 8K prints at 70mm/hr (we assume that’s at the usual 50µm layer peak). Phrozen was additionally sensible sufficient to permit for third-party slicers, so customers will not be locked right into a single slicer ecosystem. And whereas you should utilize any resin, Phrozen developed their very own 8K resin that ought to profit from this printer.
If you wish to get your palms on the brand new Phrozen Sonic Mighty 8K, preorders open on April twenty first at 10AM EDT. The preorder worth is $749.99 for the printer alone and you may obtain a $200 coupon when you place a $50 deposit now.
