Panda3D has created a new affordable SLA 3D Printer which was this week launched via Kickstarter and is now available to back with early bird pledges available from $299. With still 44 days remaining on its campaign over 140 backers have pledged enough funding to blast past the $50,000 required to take the metal encased SLA 3D printer into production.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the SLA 3D printer which is equipped with an auto levelling bed, dual Z axis, LCD display and a printing area of 150 x 130 x 73 mm. The development team at Panda3D explain more about the inspiration behind the Paladin 3D printer.
“SLA 3D printing gets more and more popular. However, the printers on the market are either too expensive or cheap but not user-friendly. So we made Paladin, the perfect combination of great quality and affordable price tag. Paladin SLA 3D printer is designed with the industrial level 1080p LCD and light source so that it can print with high resolution consistently. With the all-metal body, auto leveling and dual Z-axis slides features, Paladin is easy to use and has better durability.”
Features of the new desktop 3D printer include :
– Automatic leveling system makes the print preparing easier. Even if your print bed is somewhat unleveled, the auto-leveling 3D printer will make minor adjustments to make sure your print platform at an optimum place.
– Paladin has a built-in pump to pump refill in or drill out the resins from the tank, and it makes the resin management super easy and cost-effective.
– Resins can smell bad and that’s the reason stopping many people to start SLA 3D printing. We bear that in mind when design Paladin! With the built-in air purifier, it can eliminate most of the awful smell and safe to use inside the house.
