Ackuretta, a manufacturer of professional DLP 3D printing solutions, has introduced its newest 3D printer model, the FreeShape 120. Available as of today for $2,499, the new 3D printer offers an accessible yet professional desktop 3D printing solution for the dental and jewelry markets.
With a build volume of 120 x 68 x 140 mm, the new FreeShape 120 3D printer has a respectable build capacity for a desktop DLP machine and is capable of producing small runs of small parts. To meet the high resolution demands of both the dental and jewelry markets, the 3D printer can achieve an XY resolution of 47 microns. The machine’s Z axis has also been optimized to ensure smooth surface finishes, as well as good reliability and print performance.
The FreeShape 120 is compatible with Ackuretta’s line of Qura resins, which include dental resins QuraMODEL QuraCROWN, QuraGUIDE, as well as jewelry-oriented QuraWAX HD, QuraGP and others. Most recently, the company released a ceramic resin as part of its Qura line, following a slowly growing trend in DLP 3D printing. Users of the FreeShape 120 also have the freedom to use third party materials with the printer, as Ackuretta provides an open materials system.
“The emerging 3D printing industry continues to advance and evolve,” said Lucas Wiltse, Commercial Director, Ackuretta. “Most recently, Ackuretta has been able to engineer new technology that breaks entry barriers by offering high performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional 3D printing methods. The FreeShape 120, along with the Ackuretta’s affordable Qura Resin line, opens the door to the unique benefits of 3D printing to a wide range of users in the dental, jewelry and engineering industries.”
The new DLP 3D printer comes with a lifetime license to Ackuretta’s Alpha 3D software platform as well as an optional finishing kit. For ease-of-use, the FreeShape 120 also comes with pre-programmed settings for software, materials, printing and post-processing.
