Additive Innovation (AI), a company specialising in additive manufacturing, is now distributing the innovative printers and materials of the renowned English manufacturer Photocentric in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The LC Magna 3D printer is the largest SLA printer with LCD screen currently available, according to the manufacturer. The innovative device has a 4K Ultra HD screen with 50 micron accuracy and enables a print speed of 13.3 millimetres (mm) per hour.

In addition, to a build volume of 510mm x 280mm x 350mm, the printer offers high printing accuracy, allowing component designs with very fine surface textures such as leather or technical patterns to be printed in high resolution.

Photocentric's daylight and UV resins enable economical production at material costs starting at around 35 euros per kilo. The material can be used for various applications in prototyping, mechanical engineering or in the dental and automotive industries.

The materials are used in LCD, SLA and DLP 3D printers, for example, and are also compatible with 3D printers from other manufacturers such as Asiga, Envisiontec, Flashforge, Formlabs, Peopoly and Sprint Ray, according to Photocentric.

In cooperation with CoreTechnologie, Photocentric and Additive Innovation, an integrated software for LC Magna machines has been developed. With the so-called Photocentric Additive Tool, 3D models can be read in from common CAD formats and prepared as an exact, intelligent B-Rep model.

Special tools for the generation of support geometry, textures, grid structures as well as modelling functions such as offset surfaces, hollowing with or without internal grid structures, 3D cutting as well as scaling and mirroring are now available as a fully integrated and easy-to-use software solution for Photocentric machines.
