The UV LCD technology in Zortrax Inkspire relies on a high resolution LCD screen with UV LED backlighting to solidify photopolymers layer by layer. With 50×50 microns XY resolution and 25 microns minimal layer height it is up to 9x more precise than leading SLA 3D printers. Because the entire layer is projected onto the photopolymer’s surface all at once, it is also up to 8x faster. Microscopic precision makes Zortrax Inkspire perfect for engineers, designers, jewelers or dental prosthetists. Due to the high speed of operation, the printer can work as a basic production unit in 3D printing farms offering low to medium scale manufacturing capabilities.

Resin 3D printing done better
The technology behind Zortrax Inkspire relies on a high-resolution LCD screen with UV LED backlighting to cure photopolymers layer by layer.
The smallest object the Zortrax Inkspire can print is a block of 50x50x25 microns
The high speed of 20-36 mm / h is maintained, regardless of how much of the work area is filled.
All available resins that can be cured by 405 nm wavelength light are supported.
Printing settings such as the exposure time or the pause between layers can be changed during operation
Stereolithography (SLA) and Digital Light Processing (DLP) are two traditional resin 3D printing technologies. In SLA, the accuracy is constant, but the speed of the operation is inversely proportional to the size of the workspace occupied by the model. In DLP, the speed of the operation is constant, but the accuracy decreases as the amount of workspace used increases. Zortrax UV-LCD provides consistently high speed and precision regardless of how much of the workspace is being used.
Zortrax Inkspire ensures consistently high speed and accuracy regardless of how much of the workspace is being used. With a printer producing 50 to 80 parts in 1 hour 30 minutes, 30 printers working together can provide an approximate monthly output of 360,000 to 500,000 parts. Therefore, Zortrax Inkspire can be used as a simple production unit in easily scalable 3D printers that are capable of producing in a short time.
Resin 3D Printing is a technology that is perfect for professionals working in areas where very small but incredibly detailed models are needed. The precision and speed of Zortrax Inkspire make it a game changer for dentists, jewellers and watch designers among others.
Z-SUITE for Zortrax Inkspire
Z-SUITE is a special cutting and 3D farm management software supplied with every Zortrax 3D printer. Now it has a number of additional features that make working with Zortrax Inkspire effortless.
Z-SUITE calculates how much resin is needed to print each layer of the model and allows you to schedule a break just when refilling is required.
UV exposure times for the model and support structures can be set independently.
Prints can be paused or resumed, and progress can be monitored remotely on any Zortrax Inkspire connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
This is very much an instrument of precision.
