Roland DGA’s DGSHAPE Americas business group has announced the release of the SOL LCD 3D Printer. The compact printer is said to incorporate new and innovative technologies to deliver increased speed, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness.

The SOL LCD 3D can produce dental models, provisional crowns and bridges, occlusal guards, surgical guides, and more in-house quickly and easily. The unit is said to print at 3-times the speed of standard SLA printers and has 5-times the UV power of previous models to match or exceed that of DLP printers. The SOL LCD 3D offers a smooth surface finish with predictable and accurate printing over its 128 x 80 x 140 mm build plate and features the precision of 49-micron pixels and the capability to print at 4.5 cm per hour.

A user-friendly workflow with no calibration requirements makes the SOL ready to use right out of the box, making it ideal for both novice and experienced users. It also features touch-screen operation, a fail-safe vat frame, vat standoffs for longer vat film life, a swivel-hinged UV filter hood, and an easy-to-remove build plate to help increase efficiency, convenience, and performance.

The SOL LCD 3D’s bundled AI software includes more than 100 pre-calibrated resin profiles for simple setup, instant access to resin and firmware updates, and accurate, repeatable results. The unit comes with a Dual-Tank Ultrasonic Cleaning Unit, a UV Curing Kit, a Resin Sample Kit with model, temp and splint materials, a spare vat tray, and a Wi-Fi dongle.
