Following Carbon3D’s groundbreaking new CLIP technology, reaching a print speed 25 times faster than traditional 3D printers, Gizmo 3D unveiled a system featuring a similar speed.
26nd March 2015 – It uses a the Direct Light Processing (DLP) technology, which solidifies and fuses liquid resin into a solid 3D object with the aid of a projector. The only difference to the existing technology is, that Gizmo 3D’s prototype doesn’t pause at each layer, but works in a fluid process.
Founder of Gizmo 3D, Kobus Toit, calls the process “animated printing”, referring to the light exposure which is played as an animation. Additionally, objects are printed top-down, compared to traditional bottom-up DLP technology. However, Toit does not want to reveal to much about the actual technology before the official launch on Kickstarter.
Check out the following video, where a 30 mm object is 3D printed in just 6 minutes:
19th February 2016 – Update: More Details for the Product Launch in March
The fast 3D printer from Gizmo 3D will be available for pre-order on March 1st through Indiegogo. The 3D printing process from Gizmo utilises DLP as a basis for their printers.
The Super Speed mode on Gizmo 3D delivers even faster 3D prints:
And one of the first beta testers for the fast Gizmo 3D gives a very detailed feedback:

19th February 2016 – Update: Gizmo 3D printers are hitting Indiegogo
The long-awaited Gizmo 3D printers are hitting Indiegogo. You can pre-order the different sizes of 3D printers now. The team of Gizmo wants to start delivering the 3D printers as early as September 2016.
You can get the smallest version, the GiziMate starting at 2,950$. The bigger GiziPro from 3,500$ and the huge GiziMax from 4,050$.
The build volume varies for the many options. You can choose the build height from many different options. The ground area is 200x113mm.
- GiziMate 130 Basic: Build Height = 130mm
- GiziMate 260 Basic: Build Height = 260mm
- GiziPro 130 Basic: Build Height = 130mm
- GiziPro 390 Basic: Build Height = 390mm
- GiziMax 130 Basic: Build Height = 130mm
- GiziMax 430 Basic: Build Height = 430mm
- GiziMax 800 Basic: Build Height = 800mm
It should be noted that the super speed add-on with a projector will set you back another 2,600$.
