Who We Are


Have you ever dreamed about transforming your 3D Artwork or models into physical objects? Have you ever dreamed about the ability to touch and feel your creations instead of seeing it through your computer monitors?

Well, we might have a solution for you. We have designed an All-in-One High Resolution 3D Printer that might suit your creative purpose.

Detail pictures of 3D Models

Here are some close up picture of the models that we printed out previously. We're currently using DLP Pico Projector in our 3D printer to create our models and this allow us to get 450ppi in resolutions on these models.

  1. Awesome pictures.

    1. As i understand it, currently the highest resolution of a DLP pico projector is 858X600 - is that the pico you're using and one to be on the kit? - whats the build area?

    2. Do you use open-source stl slicer or commercial, higher quality slicer?

    3. It would seem that there isn't much 'chatter' about the material/s properties. Even Veloso doesn't say much about his "resin formula" ... Can you describe if its strong | flexible | functional like ABS | lost cast? | etc.. and does it need post curing equipment?
    - This info is as important as the printer its self.

    4. How many resin material/s are currently tested to work with this printer and what are their properties? - will they come with various colors? and estimated 1 litter price ?


    Thanks

  2. Thanks for posting the detail pictures quickly. The pictures are awesome. It's amazing about 450ppi. I would like to know the build area too. Hopefully not too small ...

    1. The build area of our 3D printer kit is approx. 43mm(W) x 27mm(L) x 180mm(H).

  3. Thanks for the comments.
    1) The DLP pico projector we're using is WVGA 854 x 480, current build area based on 450ppi is approx 43mm x 27mm
    2) For stl slicer we're using Skeinforge + Python
    3) Post curing will be required, however we'll be including that as part of the 3D printer evaluation kit. The hardness shore D>75 after fully curing.
    4) We're working with partners developing different resin, so far its only available in two colors (blue & transparent). As for the price, we're not sure at this moment, but will let everyone know once it is finalized.

  4. How high the objects can your printer make? How high is the Taipei 101?

    1. The height of actual Taipei 101 is 509.2 meters =P, but our Taipei 101 model is only 16cm tall. ^^ The 3D printer kit we're working on can make objects up to 18cm.

    2. Very funny. 16cm ~ 18cm height could make pretty decent models. Maybe in the future, we can use 3D printers to print real houses, even real towers like Taipei 101.

  5. Do you have a link to the DLP projector? I started my own 3d printer project for funz and am leaning that way so i can end up with a compact design

    1. Modification needs to be made to the DLP projector out there in the market for 3D printing application. Unless, you can find resins that reacts to visible light. For our 3D printer kit, we customize our own DLP pico projector for our application.

  6. Really brilliant pictures of the models. I Live in Taipei and have a nice view of the Tapei 101 from my living room so seeing your printed model of the Tapei 101 was just astoneshing to me.

    The concept of using a DLP pico projector and succeeding is awsome!

    i myself was thinking of the vivitek Qumi with its 720p resolution.

    i have order a 10W and 20W UV LED with 370-385nm wavelengths to start testing..

    1) Could you disclose what kind of UV Leds you are using ?
    2) how much exposure time per slice are you using ?

    Thanks

    1. Thanks for your comment, wish you all the best in succeeding in your 3D Printer project. The light source and exposure time required is depended upon the resin you are using. Our resin reacts to 405nm wavelength with build time of 1.5cm ~ 2cm per hour.
