The Liquid Crystal HR is a high resolution medium format printer ideal for most general 3D printing applications. It uses Daylight Polymer Printing (DPP) Technology. This technology is closely to stereolithography (SLA) keeping its qualities, improving the speed and dividing the current market price by five! Wherein the stereolithography process uses a powerful laser to harden the resin, the DPP method uses a large LCD screen to filter the light and polymerise the photo-sensitive resin layer by layer up to the final achievement of the object.The wide range of polymers work effectively in the printer providing every possible property from elastic through to tough. It has a 196mm x 147mm x 250mm (7.7 x 5.8 x 9.1in) build volume. Layer thickness is 25, 50, 100 microns (0.001, 0.002, 0.004in)
Daylight Hard Resin
Hard daylight polymers are ideal for making objects where you want a very hard glass-like object with no compressive ability under high force.They exhibit some shrinkage and are fast curing. Objects will not bend or deflect when under duress. They exhibit very high tensile shear properties, high Vicat softening and almost no elongation.
Daylight Firm Resin
Firm daylight polymers are ideal for making objects where you want it to be very hard with slight compressive ability under high force. Objects will bend a little and stretch slightly when under duress. They exhibit good tensile shear properties with
limited elongation. Objects can only be bent and compressed with considerable force.
Daylight Flexible Resin
Flexible daylight polymers are ideal for making objects where you want flexibility, but still a hard object. Objects will compress and deflect enough to bend and return. They exhibit low tensile shear properties and some elongation. Objects can be bent and compressed with some force.
Daylight Tough Resin
Tough Daylight polymers are ideal for making objects that are stiff but exhibit good flexibility and strength. Objects will compress and deflect under duress and will return to their original state over time. They exhibit good tensile shear properties with good elongation and little shrinkage.
Daylight Castable Resin
Castable daylight resin is specially formulated to provide high definition moulds. It will leave almost no ash when burnt and create gas evenly as the temperature is increased, avoiding any pressure build up within the casting. It will capture all the details with a very dry surface to provide the ideal finish to your investment mould.
