We launched our Continuous Digital Light Manufacturing technology in early 2016 with the Micro Plus cDLM. It’s based on a patent-protected approach we came up with a decade ago.
A twist on our DLP technology, this process allows for continuous motion of the build plate to deliver exceptional build speeds.
Our Vida cDLM followed in 2017, with an impressive build envelope of 90 x 50 x 100 mm (3.54 x 1.97 x 3.94 in.), and — don’t worry — we have more cDLM developments in the pipeline.
The Micro Plus cDLM’s patented technology allows for incredibly fast build speeds without sacrificing resolution or quality. Using a continuous motion of the build plate in the Z direction, prints can be completed in minutes rather than hours and still maintain 1 µm (0.00004 in.) accuracy in the Z direction.
The Vida cDLM delivers outstanding surface quality with no signs of stairstepping. With the largest build envelope available in cDLM technology, the Vida cDLM allows for high quality results from a manufacturer with more than 15 years of experience in 3D printing technologies.
The Vida HD cDLM is a high-speed continuous 3D printer for the jewelry, dental and general manufacturing markets. This printer is the second offering EnvisionTEC’s patented Continuous Digital Light Manufacturing technology and offers high resolution combined with blazing speeds. In addition, the technology also reduces the need for support structures during 3D builds, meaning less finishing is necessary.
