Our new DLP printer Z axis is ready for beta and is now available in the store for pre-order. The prints coming off this new Z axis are nearly flawless and the nearly all metal construction means it’s incredibly strong. This is shaping up to be the single best upgrade we’ve ever offered, and a price that is unheard-of considering the adjustability and specs. We’re still working on configuring the parts to give the most room for adjustment, but you can expect at least 230mm X, 300mm Y, and 250mm Z of usable print area. The Z is the area where we still may find a few more mm, one pleasant side effect to having such modular components. The best part is that the system is adjustable width on the mount for the reservoir, so any size res will fit. Which will actually be a necessity until we have a larger reservoir up for sale. We’re beginning work on some glass test-models tomorrow. The current system isn’t going to be offered with leadscrew just yet, we’re going to be offering that as a separate upgrade very soon. We feel it’s important to still offer inexpensive options so we’ve created a dual nut mount that will work with both the spring/M8 hardware and the leadscrew flange mount. So the upgrade will be very easy and won’t require disassembly of your new Z axis once it’s available.
