3D printer manufacturer Desktop Health, a subsidiary of Desktop Metal, has announced the global availability of its Einstein Pro XL 3D printer.
The Einstein Pro XL is a DLP-based polymer printing system that uses a 4K ultra high-definition projector to deliver precision printing of 45 micron in X and Y across a large build area of 9.8 x 5.5 x 6.5 in (249.1 x 140.1 x 165.1 mm). This high-speed printer features proprietary Hyperprint technology that turbocharges print times with strategically applied heat and a closed-loop sensing system, in addition to other enhancements.
The Einstein Pro XL retails for $39,999, without a long-term lease commitment. This new model joins the popular entry-level Einstein desktop printer, which launched in 2022, as a complete set of printers for dental and medical professionals.
“The Einstein Pro XL stands alone as a premium, production-grade DLP system in the sub-$40,000 dental lab market,” said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “Built on a trusted DLP architecture, the Einstein Pro XL is loaded with upgrades that make it an ROI powerhouse for productivity-oriented labs serving the most demanding dental professionals and patients. While Einstein Pro XL can 3D print a wide range of resins for dental models and other devices such as bite guards, it’s the only large-volume printer on the market capable of printing our popular and proprietary Flexcera material for exceptionally strong temporary and permanent restorations. We’re delighted to offer this highly anticipated new system to the global market.”
“I have been printing in-office since 2014, and ever since we started printing with the Einstein Pro XL 3D printer, we have been able to double our production in fewer prints while satisfying our standard of high accuracy models,” said Dr. Ed Lin, co-owner of Orthodontic Specialists of Green Bay, which has its own in-house orthodontic lab. “We are very excited about the high throughput and reliable precision of this new printer from Desktop Health.”
The Benefits of DLP Printing
The Einstein Pro XL is a DLP printing system, a form of 3D printing photopolymers that originated in 2002 with the EnvisionTEC Perfactory series, the base platform for the Einstein Pro XL.
DLP delivers both speed and quality by harnessing the power of a high-definition projector to rapidly flash and cure one layer of resin at a time using a theater-quality DLP chip. Because projectors expose light in pixels, the brightness of each pixel can be controlled individually. That allows for curing of each pixel to different depths or volumetric pixels, also known as voxels. The ability to control each voxel dramatically improves the accuracy and surface quality of 3D printed parts, especially when paired with custom optics and specific light wavelengths.
The Einstein Pro XL features a 4K UHD projector powered by an industrial DLP chip below the print vat. Dual linear slides for the moving build plate ensure a high accuracy print across the entire print bed by maintaining a parallel build environment. Depending on the material being processed, layer thicknesses down to 25 micron can be achieved. Custom optics and NanoFit 385, a custom wavelength for superior curing, are just some of the upgrades offered in this new system. Desktop Metal acquired EnvisionTEC and its DLP technology in 2021.
