FlashForge Hunter DLP Resin 3D Printer – Now in NZ

DLP 3d printers offer better accuray, precision & sharpness over other common cheaper LCD based 3d printers.
This is because DLP printers project entire images much like a movie projector does across a screen, whereas LCD screens have a signifcant amount of light bleed in each pixel which causes exposure bleed & inherent rounding.

DLP systems can provide consistent high power necessary across the surface area, in comparison to LCD printers.

The FlashForge Hunter now brings the power of DLP resin technology at a very Affordable price.

The easy to use free software has pre-calibrated profiles for standard material making it extremely easy to use for industry professionals who want a printer that prints, rather than a machine where they spend time experimenting to gain their perfect results.

The machine also supports third party materials, so you can print any resin presently available if you want to trial it out.


A DLP printer with a lower XY resolution on paper to a LCD printer, will still outperform a LCD printer that may have a higher XY resolution spec.

As a simple example, the latest 8K LCD based printer has a 43 micron XY resolution, & in comparison the Hunter is a 63 micron XY resolution, & the Envisiontec Envision 1 is a 96 micron XY resolution.
Yet, these DLP printers will outperform the LCD printer since the technology has the inherent advantage of precision layout & exposure accuracy.

There is no way to apply a gray scaling algorith at a hardware level in LCD printers.
With DLP technology, gray scaling can be done across exposure variations & this enables smooth, non dithered, clean lines across a part.

This is why Jewellery & Dentistry have always preferred DLP based 3d printers over any other technology.
For orthodontic thermoforming for example, 3d print models need to come out without surface aberrations else the aligner will capture it. With LCD printers, harsh lines can occus even hat the highest of ‘resoltions’.
With DLP, layers are almost inexistent so the aligners & retainers come out with a clean surface finish.

The same is paramount in Jewellery, where having a print with lines across the surface can cause castings to not be clean. DLP accuracy makes for reduced post-processing, & with skilled stafff shortages in the Jewelery industry at present, the less post-processing you need done, the cheaper he end product will be.
