Envisiontec has unveiled Aria, a new generation of entry-level desktop 3D printers said to deliver reliable performance plus good surface finish and accuracy. Built on the company’s Micro platform for professional 3D printer users, the printers are suitable for desktop makers of industrial parts as well as jewelry, consumer goods and more.

The Aria printers are equipped with an industrial-grade UV LED light engine, a dual-axis Z slide and a material tray built with optical glass instead of plastic. Z-layer resolution can be set at 25, 35 or 50 microns, depending on material. The 3D printers feature proprietary firmware and software, which supports grayscaling and exposure strategy techniques for improved performance.

The systems are offered with a choice of EnvisionTec’s most popular materials: EC500, a high-resolution lost-wax casting material suitable for heavy jewelry pieces; PIC100 for producing castable parts with detail, ideal for delicate jewelry; QView, a fast-printing material for quick design verification; and RC90, a high heat-resistant material containing ceramic for building tough stiff parts such as rubber mold masters. The Aria printers are also open materials systems, supporting materials certified for use by Envisiontec.
