The Peopoly Moai Laser SLA 3D printer features the detailed printing of an SLA machine at a lower cost than other comparable printers. This machine is perfect for anyone familiar with FDM 3D printing who is looking to make the jump into SLA technology as this kit comes in parts and is user-assembled. This not only lowers cost but provides a greater wealth of knowledge to the maker who gets to build the machine themselves!
The Peopoly Moai is a laser SLA 3D printer capable of creating some of the most detailed 3D prints possible today. Since the printer is sold as a kit the cost is lower than other fully assembled 3D printers, but the solid design and simple construction makes assembly easy. While other 3D printer kits can take 30 hours or more to complete, your Moai will be built in under 6 hours. The assembly process is easy and straightforward, requiring no soldering at all.
The Moai is powered by an ST 32-bit ARM processor, capable of interpreting Gcode and running the machine incredibly fast, allowing for high precision movements without having to increase print time. While most FDM 3D printers come with a 0.40mm nozzle, the laser spot size of the Moai is only 70 microns, or 0.07mm in diameter. This makes the 'filament path' a much higher resolution than any FDM 3D printer can accomplish. But since the toolpath is a laser curing resin and not a nozzle extruding filament the machine can print very fast and maintain low print times even at this high level of precision. Combined with the 10-micron layer height, this printer offers the most bang for your buck in the laser SLA world today.
Making the jump from FDM to SLA 3D printing is a big change, luckily the Moai makes it easy by using Gcode - the same file type used by FDM machines. Instead of moving the nozzle around the build area, it's just the laser that travels and cures the resin to create your part. Slice your part in MatterControl, export the Gcode to an SD card and the Moai will do the rest! This seamless upgradeability makes the Moai the perfect 3D printer to start using resin-based SLA machines.
