Highly Accurate Desktop 3D Printer — For a Great Fit

The Vida is a low-cost, open-architecture, easy-to-maintain and user-friendly 3D printer for a wide variety of professional and medical applications.

The Vida boasts a high-resolution projector running at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution with custom UV optics. Once the print job is preprocessed on a computer housing the Perfactory software suite, it is transferred to the machine via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or USB connection styles, and can run independently without the need for continuous connection to the preprocessing computer.

The surface quality of the printed models allows for production with no signs of stairstepping, unlike the visibility when using competing technologies. The versatility of the Vida allows for an impressive range of materials to be processed, giving users the ability to 3D print a wide variety of dental, orthodontic, hearing and other applications.
