Here are the key features of the Photocentric LC Opus 3D printer: 

  • Large Build Volume 

  • Patented Vat-Lift Technology

  • Factory Calibrated 

  • Fast Production Speeds

  • Robust Hardware

Print An Array of Your Prototypes with Ease

The LC Opus has a considerably sized build volume, allowing you to 3D print your multi-part prototypes all at once or medium-sized batches of small models.

  • Build Volume: 310 x 174 x 220mm
  • Iterate and 3D print large prototypes with full detail in-house
  • Print dozens of models at once in large batches

LC Opus Vat Lift

Gently Release 3D Prints and Ensure Print Success

The Photocentric LC Opus utilizes an interesting workaround to break the suction formed between a freshly cured layer of resin, the vat film, and the LCD below: "Vat-Lift." By using a second stepper motor at the rear of the LC Opus, the vat is gently lifted and lowered with each layer, relieving tension in the system, allowing air to flow between the various layers, and for the vat film to act as a flexible membrane.

  • Patented Vat-Lift mechanism ensures reliability
  • Significant improvement over traditional methods
  • Many small or one massive 3D print is assisted by this technology

Fully Calibrated in Factory Gets You Printing Faster

The biggest hurdle for any new 3D printer is getting it tuned and set up for reliable 3D printing. Fortunately, Photocentric calibrates every LC Opus before it leaves their production line and heads to your workshop.

  • Revised from previous version and feedback from power users
  • Trusted and tested production with 1000s of successfully deployed units
  • 12 month warranty comes standard

Large Batch Prints

Maximize Production Times with Large Batch Prints

With LCD 3D printing, print times are dictated by the tallest model in the batch; one instance or one hundred will have exactly the same print times. In tandem with the Vat-Lift mechanism, you can trust that a build plate full of 3D prints will finish successfully and packing it full to the edge is an efficient use of your print jobs.

  • Large build plate for edge-to-edge printing
  • UV resins cure fast and easy with the monochrome LCD
  • 50 micron layer height at 2 second exposure per layer. (Larger layer heights possible with different resins).

High Quality Hardware 

From the feet to the frame, every part of the Photocentric LC Opus has been thoughtfully considered and intentionally designed. Trust that this machine has what it takes to be a 3D printing powerhouse for your productions.

  • Aluminum build platform with easy-carry handles and interchangeable without recalibration.
  • Aluminum body with solvent-resistant paint
  • Precision engineered components including THK linear rails
