Here are answers to some frequent questions:
There is no quick answer to this question, although our products are designed primarily for Jewellery and Dental applications, in reality, our products have been used in a vast array of applications. Our 3D Printers have been used to build small parts for engineering projects, model pieces of architecture, turbo wheels and gearbox parts, even produce very sophisticated nozzles for fire extinguishers. We are working daily on increasing our repository of resin materials to allow our customers to further explore the endless capabilities of 3D printing.
Firstly, we would suggest that to compare machine specifications alone is not the best course of action. Let’s start by asking what’s the end product that you want to create, and what is it made of? If you want to cast your model into a metal alloy for Jewellery, Dental or other purposes, then the comparison is somewhat simple. You can safely choose G3D on the basis that no other company in the world can create the machine, the resin and the casting plaster all to match each other and work together perfectly. If you want to create plastic, resin or ceramic models, then you can compare the machines on the basis of resolution XY, resolution Z, Build Area/Volume, Build Speed, Consumable cost and Machine Cost. We have collated some information to help you with this comparison:
