Nexa3D expands ultrafast 3D printing with XiP desktop 3D printer

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Nexa3D, makers of ultrafast polymer 3D printers, present XiP, the company’s first desktop 3D printer The new system desktop 3D printer joins the industrial NXE 400 and dental-focused NXD 200 in offering high-speed polymer 3D printing speeds based on Nexa3D’s proprietary lubricant sublayer photo-curing (LSPc) technology. By taking these capabilities to the desktop, Nexa3D wants to open up high-speed polymer 3D printing at a smaller footprint and more accessible price point.

“We wanted to make ultrafast 3D printing available and accessible to every business that could benefit,” said Avi Reichental, CEO, Chairman, and Co-Founder of Nexa3D. “The XiP will allow a wide range of users to create at the speed of thought — turning their ideas into products more quickly. We envision a world where all businesses can have a prototype product in their hand in the space of one day, while working sustainably, safely and responsibly.”

Meet the XiP

The new desktop system offers a rugged, aluminum construction with notable technical specifications including a build volume: 190 x 120 x 170 mm (3.8 liters), 4K STD resolution, upgradeable to 6-8K when available, 52 µm STD pixel size, upgradeable to 25 µm when available and 50 µm to 200 µm layer thickness.

Nexa3D expands range with XiP desktop 3D printer to open up high-speed polymer 3D printing at more accessible price point.

Further differentiating features include a Smart Resin Cartridge and Toolless Vat System. Smart feed resin delivery relies on gravity to enable touch-free material loading and intelligent polymer levels in the vat, ensuring a constant level for greater print optimization. The system allows for large builds of up to 1.3 kg to be continuously made without interruption. The toolless vat system clamps into place with electromagnets, simplifying and speeding up material changeover. Vat life extends to 50,000 layers with Nexa3D’s Everlast Interface. When not being used in printing, vats stack in a UV-blocking storage system extending the useful life of resins and preventing spills.

An open materials platform using a smart resin cartridge adds endless possibilities and ease of use. Smart cartridges can be quickly, easily, and safely loaded and unloaded, even during a live print. The XiP recognizes the cartridge, with smart capabilities automatically authenticating and checking compatibility with the current build, as well as monitoring shelf life and quantity. Materials immediately available for high-speed polymer 3D printing with the XiP include a general-purpose resin (Draft, White, Gray, Black, Clear) as well as polypropylene-like, ABS-like and even PEEK-like resins. Elastomeric and Dental-specific (Model, Splint, Surgical Guide, Impression Tray) materials are also available.

“We’re familiar with the challenges of today’s 3D printing workflows and invested time, energy and expertise into removing every possible pain point,” added Reichental. “Alongside its productivity and safety benefits, the XiP delivers a quick return on investment, low total cost of ownership and has a rugged aluminum design that is ideal for a busy commercial environment. We’ve considered that a 20x faster printer can be used 20x more, and have designed the machine to withstand the extra wear and tear that accompanies so much printing.”

Introducing Michael Currie

Underscoring the significance of this expansion to its technology and product portfolio, Nexa3D is also introducing a new business head with the hire of industry expert Michael Currie.

Currie brings with him a wealth of Industry 4.0 experience, including executive leadership tenures at Oracle, HubSpot, Formlabs, and most recently Gecko Robotics. He has successfully led growing sales teams in the 3D printing and other high-tech spaces to reach double-digit growth goals, establishing strong cultures of success. His unique experience in and understanding of the market make him an ideal addition to the Nexa3D team and set to focus on the desktop 3D printing business.

“Nexa3D launched the XiP to gift its users more time,” said Mike Currie, General Manager of Desktop at Nexa3D. “The XiP unites multiple innovations into a desktop package to radically transform how fast additive parts can be made. With XiP, you will see your parts come alive in real-time, with zero sacrifices in quality.”

Currie and the expert engineering team are introducing the XiP together with a full automated desktop ecosystem and workflow. An all-in-one wash and cure system with xCLEAN detergent ensure safer handling and greater savings for end-to-end desktop 3D printing success.

The XiP can accelerate time to market, shorten supply chains, and reduce carbon footprint, applicable from prototyping to production to digital inventory solutions. Targeted markets include automotive, medical, dental, aerospace and defense, consumer products, and industrial products.
