SparkMaker – The Most Affordable SLA 3D Printer

According to indiegogo

3D Printing is the future! But when we looked at the available 3D printer models on the market, we could not find a single one that delivers high-quality printings at a reasonable price.

That’s why we made SparkMaker, an LCD based SLA 3D printer that prints in high-resolution yet have a price that makes it affordable for everyone.

SparkMaker is compact, beautiful, and user-friendly. At 10 x 6.7 x 6.7 inches (27.5 x 17 x 17 cm) and a weight of only 6.6 pounds (3Kg), the SparkMaker fits perfectly in any office, studio or workshop.

it is small in size but has the room where it matters. The SparkMaker 3D printer has a uniform maximum build areas of 4 x 2.2 inches (10.2 x 5.6 cm) and a building height of 5 inches (12.5 cm).

Printing at 100 micrometer XY resolution and up to 20 micrometer Z layer thickness, SparkMaker has an amazing ability to print in higher resolution compared to DLP 3D printers.

However, an affordable price doesn’t mean we compromised on the quality. The 102 x 56 x 125 print area means that SparkMaker is ideal for scale prototyping as well as general 3D printing.

With SparkMaker, we wanted to make 3D printing as easy and user-friendly as possible. Unlike other SLA 3D printers that require a computer connection, SparkMaker supports offline printing.

You can forget about connection problems. Simply insert an SD card with a pre-loaded design, press the print button and your creation begins to take shape.

Monitoring your print projects is easier too with SparkMaker. It has a jumbo LED light with three different colors to indicate the printing progress.

Of course, quality is what we strive for when it comes to our 3D printing endeavors. While the majority of today’s FDM printers will produce a decent model, compare an FDM print to one produced by any SLA 3D printer and you’ll quickly see that SLA takes the lead when it comes to the overall quality of finish.

1. Download a 3D print model file from your computer to an SD card.

2. Insert SD card into SparkMaker & fill printer with the desired resin.

3. Press the button and your design begins to print. That’s it!

When we designed SparkMaker, we aimed to strip away the clutter and keep things as simple as possible. As a result, SparkMaker has no moving parts that aren’t essential to the printing process. This simplicity allows the SparkMaker to keep running smoothly over time.

Resins can be easily bought online from authorized dealers of SparkMaker. Alternatively, you can choose to use third-party resins. Theoretically, SparkMaker supports resin with curing wavelength between 400-410nm, but in order to print at best effect, we suggest you use SparkMaker resin.

We want to make 3D printing accessible for everyone, so we use affordable resin too. SparkMaker comes with up to 5 types of resins (with the Value Bundle), each suitable for different objects you wish to create.

 

Why can we make SparkMaker in such a great price?  

SparkMaker goes with the mature technology and inexpensive LCD display with UV backlight to curing photosensitive resin layer by layer. The structures of SparkMaker will be made by injection mold. SparkMaker uses our own developed control board but not the expensive Raspberry Pi or other open source control boards.

SparkMaker uses the high precision linear guides instead of plain shaft guides, and high-quality stainless steel T2 screw.

These are the key reasons why it can be cost effective but still has a precise dimensional accuracy.
