The MoonRay S combines the high resolution capabilities of Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing with the latest Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology. This means the MoonRay is both technically capable of producing highly detailed and accurate prints but also has flawless user experience. The MatterHackers test team was very impressed with the easy setup and also the everyday ease of use with this printer. This is one of the lowest cost DLP resin printers available, which makes the Sprintray MoonRay S the best choice in desktop DLP 3D printers for businesses, educators, and individuals alike.
At the core of MoonRay S is a custom-built UV DLP projector, RayOne. Created so every MoonRay S would be equipped with a well-calibrated, long-lasting projector. RayOne hits the correct light wavelength consistently across the build platform for improved resin-curing control and dimensional stability. This method of curing also enables the MoonRay S to achieve a 1 inch per hour printing speed at 100 micron z-resolution. Parts printed with MoonRay S and RayOne are exceptionally detailed and precise, with a dimensional accuracy of +/- 50 microns.
MoonRay S’ exceptional accuracy is the result of the RayOne UV LED projector and the high-performance MoonRay materials. RayOne was developed in order to eliminate the distortion issues of conventional DLP and laser SLA 3D printing. It's uniform light intensity across the build platform ensures that all of your printed parts, regardless of size and shape, are accurate. MoonRay resins have been formulated for use with RayOne to print accurate parts with unlimited details.
There will often be distortion when using commercial projectors due to the manufacturing and assembly quality of the lenses.
The laser reflecting off of the printer’s mirrors can compromise resolution and accuracy in the outer parts of the build platform.

The high quality lenses in RayOne ensure parts printed
by MoonRay S will be dimensionally accurate.
Unlike laser SLAs that are drastically slower when printing large or complex parts, MoonRay S’ print speed is consistently fast, and only dependent on the height of your model. Printing multiple models takes the same amount of time as printing one model, making MoonRay S the most time-efficient 3D-printing option and up to ten times faster than laser SLA 3D printing.
Printing one model or ten takes the same machine time
MoonRay S’ unique resin tank was made to last. No more costly resin tank maintenance -- no more replacing your resin tank regularly or changing the PDMS layer. You can focus on creating and printing amazing models instead of spending time on machine maintenance. MoonRay S’ durable resin tank lasts up to 25 times longer than the resin tanks of similar 3D printers. While most resin tanks require changing every 2 liters, the MoonRay S tank can last through up to 50 liters of resin before needing to be replaced.
The MoonRay S uses UV Sensitive Photopolymer resin available in both standard and functional varieties. Standard Resins come in a variety of colors, including orange, white, and clear. MoonRay Resins have been formulated to stay true to the original dimensions of your model and preserve every detail. Functional Resins bring extra capabilities to your MoonRay S. Castable Resin allows you to print and cast jewelry with very fine details. Modeling Gray Resin is an excellent choice for engineers and artists because of it's opaque finish and neutral tone.
