Small businesses or entrepreneurs that need to prototype working models to a high specification for verification and approval processing may be interested in a set of machines created by Roland that form the company’s monoFab Prototyping Solution.
The first is a Stereolithography SLA resin 3D printer in the form of the Roland ARM-10 which is priced at $5,995 and uses ultra-violet (UV) Digital Light Projector (DLP) to produce high resolution 3D prints.
The Roland ARM-10 3D printer is capable of printing at a resolution of 0.2mm in the XY plane and 0.01mm in the Z axis and uses UV light to cure resin creating the finished 3D print. Offering a print volume of 130 x 70 x 70mm in size, Roland explains:
“With Roland’s first 3D printer, the ARM-10, you will be able to rapidly fabricate highly detailed 3D objects, that are impossible to create with ordinary subtractive manufacturing, on a desktop sized machine. Simply put your 3D design into the included software, start the print and then come back to your finished creation is just a short while.”
Roland also offers a desktop milling machine in the form of the Roland SRM-20 that is available to purchase for $4,995 and provides a machine that is capable of milling light materials, including “Modeling Wax, Chemical Wood, Foam, Acrylic, Poly acetate, ABS, PC board” at up to 7,000 rpm.
