SeedMaker Particle S3 LCD 3D printer campaign on Kickstarter “https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/seedmakers3/seedmaker-particle-s3-lcd-3d-printer? ref=discovery&term=seedmaker” is seeking to raise funds for mass production of the printer. Backers who support the campaign will receive a discount on the machine.
Naturally worry about those conventional 3D printers that don’t last long and require so much maintenance but feel reassured to know that Particle S3 is made through precision machining and cutting with an all-metal integrated CNC machining process, including nine CNC milling processes, an anodized surface treatment process, and further enhanced wear resistance.
Typically, consumer-grade 3D printers will produce underwhelming results. Particle S3 is designed to do precisely the opposite: while it is a consumer-grade machine, it delivers industrial-grade precision. The printer’s industrial-grade ball screw Z axis delivers better and more efficient Torque transmission and ensures that the Z-axis positioning accuracy is significantly enhanced when compared to other printers. The linear guide rail is widened, the load is large, and the rigidity is high – and you can count on these features while also knowing that the ball screw’s service life is more than compared to a typical lead screw design.
Particle S3 has a simple user-friendly perforated printing platform that reduces lifting and provide better bed adhesion, being more convenient and easier to maintain, as well as being more durable. The printer’s connecting Rod of the forming platform also features extremely High Machining Accuracy, avoiding the need for frequent leveling, dramatically removing the typical adjustment effort that the entire printing process involves, and delivering better results.
Particle S3 features an 8.9-inch 4K Monochrome LCD Screen with a resolution of up to 3840×2400, finer layer details and a better printing resolution. Instead of the conventional ordinary color screens that deliver subpar results, this printer’s monochrome screen ensures better and more detailed printing results — while also offering longer service life that is up to 4 times longer than competitor color screens.
We’ve put a lot of research work into developing Particle S3, delivering a better light distribution and higher uniformity of light collimation. What does this mean? a more even distribution of the Ultraviolet curing light which results in an all-around superior performance. Another thing one ’ll be happy to know is that Particle S3 won’t make one lose print by powering off or power loss. This printer will save it for the next printing activity, so losing power, won’t hurt anyone’s creative projects.
Particle S3 can automatically shut down after the print job is completed and also after the standby mode is timed out so that it saves energy when it doesn’t need to be ON. On the other hand, its front power button means you can seamlessly turn it ON and OFF in one touch, whenever needed.
Particle S3 allows monitoring its printing activity through video. A built-in webcam will show how the project’s printing job is doing, steadily transmitting in real-time to the slicing software (Cura / wiibuilder), so that one knows where the project stands at any time.
Ultimately, 3D printing is an exciting world of creativity, independent manufacturing that can explored at home or small business. One would normally struggle to do that with a typical consumer-grade 3D printer, but Particle S3 is a definitive game-changer: It features the first high-precision control platform made with high percision CNC parts in consumer-grade printers, translating into an extreme printing accuracy and a firm and precise printing platform without the need of repeatedly leveling the machine. In other words, Particle S3 is built to let anyone truly enjoy the fun of resin 3d printing.
Last but not least, this printer’s design is a perfect mix of simple yet sophisticated lines that make it a stylish addition wherever its placed, either at home or office!
SeedMaker’s core team of 3D printing industry veterans decided to leverage their extensive industry knowledge to create a new consumer-grade 3D printer that matches performance and convenience with affordability. The project’s development began in 2019, and after continuous iterations and updates, the latest SeedMaker has been extensively tested. In terms of its overall performance in the marketplace, SeedMaker sold more than 1,000 units in its first year of activity, followed by another 3,000 units in its second year.
