3D Next Level plans to use the Titan to produce large props for film and television productions, replicas for museums and exhibitions, as well as outdoor sculptures and street furniture. In addition, the printer will be a valuable addition to the company’s extensive industrial manufacturing line, supporting engineering organizations from prototyping to final part production.
The Liquid Crystal Titan was unveiled at the Formnext exhibition in Frankfurt and attracted a lot of interest as the largest LCD 3D printer currently on the market. With a build envelope of 695x385x1200mm, a pixel resolution of 91 microns and an impressive print speed of 86mm/hour, Photocentric demonstrated a wide range of applications, from exhibition figurines and automotive parts to decorative art and furniture.
The Titan is part of a complete solution for large part printing, including the Wash XL and Cure XL post-processing units, an extensive range of resins, design software, recycling options, training and extended product warranty. Photocentric, originally started as a resin manufacturer, produces both printers and materials, offering a unique approach to mass production of digital parts.
Lennart van den Doel, Founder of 3D Next Level was looking forward to getting to work with Titan: “We are increasingly being asked to produce large prints with highly detailed finishes that can be used in films, museums and elsewhere on display. Titan will enable us to print them quickly, with outstanding detail, at a price that makes sense for this market.”
Agustin Soriano, Sales and Marketing Director at Photocentric added: “Additive Manufacturing is an essential tool for designers and engineers in product development, but increasingly one for production. Titan has a large volume build, so can print many identical versions of the same part or print one-off large pieces, opening a wider opportunity for users to be both creative and profitable.”
