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. While our first cDLM printer was developed with our loyal jewelry customers in mind, don’t worry – we have more coming.
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.
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.
