The speed of Vistar (PROTOFAB) 3D printer surpasses other brands far more, as soon as three speed evaluation report looks apparently!

Create Time: 03/11/2019

As we all know, printing speed is one of the core choke point in the development of 3D printing technology, we always value printing speed when purchasing a 3D printer. As far as I can see, once the speed is greatly improved, 3D printing will very likely transform the manufacturing industry in some domains. In this issue, Vistar R&D Lab will test the printing speed of Vistar (Protofab) 3D printer through three professional evaluation models, to provide our customers with a more professional and objective reference. Let’s have a look.

Test Equipment Type

▲Vistar / ProtoFab SLA600 DLC
▼Vistar / ProtoFab SLA450


Test one:Pelvic Model Printing Time Comparison Test

Objective: To test the printing time of pelvic model in the fast mode of fixed spot and variable spot
Software Version:Test Version:Sirius 6.6.4
Print Parameter,:h60c Material date base-Fast Mode
Test Equipment:Vistar(ProtoFab)—SLA600 DLC / SLA450
Equipment Specification:600mm × 600mm × 400mm
Test Material:H60C(Normal Material)
Test Model:Model Name:1. Sacrum 2. Right hip 3. Left hip
Model Size:127x154x200 / 155x122x196 / 81x112x147
Slice Thickness:0.1mm
Print requirement:Time Verification
Test Steps:
Step 1:Load the experimental model into the software for time calculation and printing
Step 2:Compare the time data
Test Result:
1、Variable spot fast mode Estimated printing time7:40:3 Actual printing time 7:30:45
Fixed spot fast mode Estimated printing time6:51:9 Actual printing time 6:45:36 2、Neat texture and complete details
Result Analysis:
The pelvic bone model printed by DLC equipment in fast mode is about twice times faster than normal equipment

Test Two:Comparison test of model printing time by Taizhou customer

Objective: Comparison test of model printing time by Taizhou customer
Software Version:Test Version:Sirius 6.6.4
Print Parameter,:h60c Material date base-Fast Mode
Test Equipment:Vistar(ProtoFab)—SLA600 DLC
Equipment Specification:600mm × 600mm × 400mm
Test Material:H60C(Normal Material)
Model Size:1、576X201X206mm 4pcs
2、106X94X98mm 2pcs
3、78X86X86mm 2pcs
Slice Thickness:0.1mm
Print requirement:Time Verification
Test Steps:
Step 1:Load the experimental model into the software for time calculation and printing
Step 2:Save time data when complete
Step 3: Clean and check the effect after the machine is down
Test Result:
1、Model estimated printing time15:46:39 Actual printing time 15:58:27, estimated time error approx. 1.26%
2、Compare to customer’s time data: Text data UnionTech 28 hours, ZRapid Tech 36 hours, DV_Build 45 hours, speed ratio respectively about 1.75 times, 2.25 times, 2.8 times
3、Uniform forming texture
Result Analysis:
The model printed by DLC equipment in fast mode is about 1.75-2.8 times faster

Test Three:Comparison test of model printing time by Norwegian customer

Objective: To test the printing time of model in the fastest speed
Software Version:Test Version:Sirius 6.6.4
Print Parameter,:h60c Material date base-Fast Mode
Test Equipment:Vistar(ProtoFab)——SLA450
Equipment Specification:450mm × 450mm × 400mm
Test Material:H60C(Normal Material)
Model Size:1、171X171X273 1pc
2、171X171X273 1pc
3、254X235X192 1pc
Slice Thickness:0.1mm
Print requirement:Time Verification
Test Steps:
Step 1:Load the experimental model into the software for time calculation and printing
Step 2:Save time data when complete
Step 3: Clean and check the effect after the machine is down
Test Result:
1、Model estimated printing time 19:15:11 Actual printing time 19:1:30, estimated time error approx. 1.21%
2、Compare to customer’s time data: DV_Build 36:41:03, speed ratio respectively about 1.93 times
3、600A Fixed spot equipment estimated time 15:1:7, the speed is approximately 2.44 times
4、Uniform forming texture
Result Analysis:
The model printed by DLC equipment in fast mode is about 1.93 times faster

With high capacity and high quality, to create more business value

The core of 3D printers is control software, with disruptive innovation in software (Sirius), the high-speed intelligent SlA3D printer of Vistar (ProtoFab) has led to a huge increase in printing speed and efficiency, with the usage of the world's first DLC technology, printing speed has achieved a qualitative leap, model printing speed is 2-5 times faster than other similar brands (software), which breaks the domestic record of similar products, model printing estimate time is accurate, the estimated error is only about 0.5%-4.5%,it is more conducive to the production plan and control. The new upgrade of the software makes Vistar 3D printers performs outstanding in terms of forming size, printing speed, printing accuracy, stability and usability. It is more convenient for management with additional accessibility features (automatic door/automatic feeding/remote detection/remote printing/remote management/remote visual/remote control/optical channel device life warning/WeChat remote viewing progress, etc.). The innovation brings about the new technology meets the expectations of industry all along, Vistar sets up the benchmark of 3D printing technology in China, represents the leading position of 3D printing in the world!
