Built on EnvisionTEC’s long-trusted Micro platform for professional 3D printer users, Aria features high-quality components and patented firmware and software that consistently delivers exceptional results.
The Aria is available for purchase online at www.EnvisionTEC.com/aria, with an estimated delivery date of 4-6 weeks from purchase. Shipping is currently limited to customers in North America and Europe.
“EnvisionTEC has been known for its unwavering commitment to delivering professional-grade 3D printers for more than 15 years, which is why we consistently remain a 3D printing leader,” said CEO Al Siblani. “The Aria remains faithful to our mission of delivering a premium product, but at a more accessible price that gives users a taste of EnvisionTEC’s outstanding quality and reliability.”
Aria features an industrial-grade UV LED light engine, a dual-axis Z slide and a material tray built with optical glass instead of plastic. Z layer resolution can be set at 25, 35 or 50 microns, depending on material. What’s more, Aria comes equipped with EnvisionTEC’s #15YearsBetter firmware and software, which offers patented grayscaling and exposure strategy techniques for superior performance.
Aria is offered with a choice of four of EnvisionTEC’s most popular materials:
- EC500 ― The highest resolution and crispest lost wax casting material available without sacrificing speed. Ideal for heavier jewelry pieces.
- PIC100 ― Produces castable parts with exceptional detail, including thin walls and intricate features. Three times harder than carving wax and ideal for delicate jewelry.
- QView ― For quick design verification, QView is one of the fastest printing materials offered by EnvisionTEC.
- RC90 ― A high heat-resistant material containing ceramic for building tough, stiff parts in a resolution many regard as the best in 3D printing today. Ideal for building parts to create rubber mold masters, RC90, is used by some of the world’s leading technology, entertainment and jewelry manufacturers.
Aria is also an open materials system, but materials must be certified for use by EnvisionTEC.
