The EnvisionTEC Vida is an advanced desktop 3D printer that’s ideally suited to the engineering and medical markets. Utilising advanced Direct Light Projection (DLP) technology from Texas Instruments, the Vida is suitable for 3D printing various types of parts. Models printed with the EnvisionTEC Vida have outstanding detail, and crucially, they are completely smooth with no ‘stair-stepping’.
Outstanding Print Accuracy and Quality
With a high-resolution projector running at 1920 x 1080 pixels and advanced UV optics, the EnvisionTEC Vida 3D printer makes true-to-design models every time. It boasts an XY resolution of 73 µm (0.0029 in.) and a Z resolution of 25 to 150 µm (0.001 to 0.006 in.), to capture the finest detail, and there are a wide range of specialist resins available, to satisfy all manufacturing requirements.
The Vida is also one of few 3D printers on the market that can 3D print parts without stair-stepping, which is when there’s visible layer lines on the surface of models. An advanced version of Direct Light Projection technology is utilised to cure large amounts of resin at the same time. This means that there are no signs of stair-stepping on models, so printed models will be of a showcase quality fresh from the print bed.
Impressive Range of Materials
Of course, a 3D printer is only as good as the materials it can print, and to this end the EnvisionTEC Vida offers plenty. The list of supported materials includes ABS 3SP Tough, ABS Flex Light, E-Silicone, LS600, PolyPro Max 3SP, Q-View, R05, RC70 and the E-Shell series. These materials are all manufactured by EnvisionTEC, to satisfy a wide range of manufacturing requirements.
The Vida is also exceptionally easy to use. It has Ethernet and USB connectivity, and it can run independently without the need for a continuous connection. You control the 3D printer through a touchscreen interface, through which you can select from a variety of pre-programmed settings and select which filament you are using.
