Unlike the original Sinterit Lisa, the Pro version has a build chamber with an increased height. Provided that the print is placed diagonally in the build area, the printer can produce objects of up to 32 centimeters in height. The second difference is that Sinterit Lisa Pro features an integrated gas supply system for nitrogen or argon into the print chamber, in order to oust atmospheric air. An oxygen-free environment will allow you to use the newest powders on the market. For example, Onyx PA11 polyamide, which demonstrates better strength and stiffness characteristics than the standard PA12. You can prepare models for printing with Sinterit Studio. This simple and practical slicer will allow you to select the material and layer height, as well as to adjust the positioning of the models inside the build chamber - they should not intersect and stretch beyond the recommended print area. Sinterit Studio can work with several printers connected to the same enterprise network. This will allow you to monitor the printing process and organize a 3D printing farm with multiple Sinterit devices.
For the typical maker or small-sized company, the incorporation of 3D printers usually will take the form of FDM or SLA technology. There are two options that the common 3D printer is familiar with, as the other options are usually expensive and require large-scale industrial equipment.
But, at one point in time, there was a period that each FDM and SLA technology was restricted to industrial applications because there was no desktop-sized option that was priced at a reasonable price. Nowadays, a similar surge of accessibility is being embraced by selective laser sintering. This is a 3D printing method that uses hugely powerful lasers to melt powder materials to produce real 3D objects.
In 2000 it was the year that in 2000, the Massachusetts 3D printer manufacturer Formlabs introduced their Fuse 1, a SLS 3D printer for $9999, but hasn't made it available for purchase. However, close to the stunning old buildings within Krakow, Poland, the 3D printing firm Sinterit worked for over three years to integrate this process of industrial manufacturing into a compact and cost-effective machine named Lisa.
This Sinterit Lisa is a desktop SLS machine with an initial price of $6,990 (EUR4,999) which is extremely reasonable for this type of technology. The entire package, which includes a Sandblasting machine and an abrasive sieve costs more than $2000. Apart from it being the Lisa system, which is affordable and easy to operate, it's the kind of printer that plugs in and goes.
What the Sinterit Lisa seems to symbolize is the end of industrial use. The 3D printer makes SLS technology available to more designers and entrepreneurs than ever before.
All3DP visited Sinterit. Sinterit Group is located in Krakow, Poland. We had the opportunity to review as well as test Sinterit Lisa on-site. Sinterit Lisa was present on-site and gave us a unique and intimate experience with the 3D printer SLS.

Two days later, we were working on Our Sinterit Lisa 3D printer, our first impressions of this machine were generally favorable. It was our first experience investigating this process called selective laser sintering. being able to observe what it works. The Lisa has the highest quality and accessible and affordable 3D printer and offers a good value. It was an ideal place to start this journey into industrial technology.
Thanks to the help of the Sinterit team as well as the kindness and generosity of the entire Sinterit team, All3DP was granted hands-on experience using Sinterit Lisa. Sinterit Lisa 3D Printer.
We walked through the whole process from creating off the 3D model, then creating the final product by sandblasting, making us aware of how SLS 3D printing operates, and also how readily available Sinterit could transform this previously hard to access technology accessible to anyone.
It wasn't very long after we had completed our hands-on testing when we realized that it was still an industrial device. Despite its affordable price and user-friendly interface, the Sinterit Lisa still requires more expertise and knowledge opposed to the typical FDM printer.
However, the Sinterit Lisa isn't a printer designed for the typical 3D printer fanatic. Instead, the Polish 3D printer maker is geared towards small and medium-sized enterprises that are looking to create functional prototypes or old components.
The interface used by users of 3D printers walks users through each step of setting up and cleaning the printer. The simple and easy-to-follow instructions helped you understand the basics of 3D printing in the very first try.
After printing was finished We needed to get ready for post-processing. This meant removing the hot bed, and then taking away models (with gloves that protect and tools too) before being cleaned using the Sinterit Sandblaster.
Although Sinterit Lisa is a small and compact model, Sinterit Lisa is compact and inexpensive as the price of an SLS 3D printer, but it's an advanced model that must be taken seriously. It's crucial to have a space capable of handling tasks like grinding of fine powder, or sandblasting. A 3D printer is a procedure that requires a lot of patience, vigilance and a bit of dirty work.
What makes the Sinterit Lisa so unique is the capability to incorporate SLS technology into an extremely compact and easy to operate machine. It is generally true that there are many advantages that SLS technology offers over FDM and SLA for instance, the ability to print with no support, to combine multiple objects into one printer and print parts that have more endurance and are resistant to temperatures.
The Sinterit Lisa is able to provide these advantages at a fraction of cost. It's specifically designed for small-scale business engineers, designers or designers that require functional prototypes, as well as parts.
When it comes to SLS 3D printing, you are able to print without the support structure. In addition, you can incorporate multiple parts in one powder bed making the process more efficient compared to FDM and SLA 3D printing in various scenarios.
The Sinterit Lisa offers a minimum layer thickness of 0.075 millimeters with an XY accuracy of .05 millimeters, and a 150 300 x 150 millimeters build volume.
The Sinterit Lisa also includes a 4-inch touchscreen that guides users through each stage that prints, starting with the initial setup to cleaning the printer after the print is completed. It also supports Wi-Fi and an onboard camera which lets you monitor the printing process through the screen.
As of now, Sinterit is offering two exclusive, non-toxic, and exclusive powders. These include PA12 as well as Flexa Black. After sandblasting the model , you'll have a functioning item straight from the printer. The Sinterit Lisa includes all of the equipment needed to start printing. The team will also assist with installation and training.

If you buy the complete kit, you'll receive Sinterit Powder Sieve, Sinterit Powder Sieve, Sinterit Sandblaster as well as fresh PA12 powder and powder that is print-ready.
Let's go on to the great stuff. Let's get started, shall we? Before we began the 3D printing process we had to have a quick overview of Sinterit Lisa. Sinterit Lisa slicing software (which we'll go over in a while).
Since this hands-on experience with Sinterit Lisa Sinterit Lisa would be only a couple of days, it was essential to develop a 3D representation that was extremely detailed and practical. So Sinterit recommended that the Sinterit team create some of their most beautiful prototypes, which is a model of the car's chassis.
After finding the model within the software for slicing of the company , it was time to get the Sinterit Lisa up and running. The first time we tested it, we found the SLS 3D printer was extremely user-friendly. The user interface is very useful, and helps users with every step.
Once when the USB cable was connected with the 3D printer USB port, we then loaded the model via an interface for users.
Before we start putting into the powder there are many things to be inspected and prepare. One thing Sinterit Lisa Sinterit Lisa does require is some sort of cleaning.
To make sure that the system functions efficiently, users must clean the pyrometer as well as the protective glass used for the laser as well as any other powder areas which could impact how 3D printing is conducted.
In the event that you download your 3D models into Sinterit Lisa Sinterit Lisa, the 3D printer will immediately determine the amount of powder needed to fill the chambers which are divided. To assist you to determine how much powder that you will need to put in the printing bed The beds are brought down to the exact degree of measurement.
Then, you'll place the powder in the prepared chamber for printing. Sinterit recommends wearing safety glasses, masks and gloves included with your 3D printer kit.
It is necessary to compress the freshly pouring powder with a spatula, which makes the powder's surface even and compact. Then, the auto-level function is activated to smooth and distribute the powder according to.
Before you know when the Sinterit Lisa can begin the 3D printing process, it is necessary to use an ethyl-saturated cloth to clean the glass on the side for parameters, as also the protective glass for lasers as well as the guide for Recoaters. Following that, cover the surface of the bearing using silicone grease. If you notice dirt on your reflector, or the lamps that are heating up then clean them with dry cloth.
Once this is completed, you're now ready to close the lid and start 3D printing of your design. The UI will give you the option to begin printing. You can also select"camera view" to view what's happening during the 3D print process. It's a smaller screen.
The Sinterit Lisa is a desktop 3D printer SLS which is affordable and easy to use. This industrial-grade Polish machine is able to print 3D functional prototypes and also end-of-life components.
Once it's clear that Sinterit Lisa is finished with the model and has cooled the chamber, it's time to remove the 3D printer to allow post-processing. To protect the user, the lid of the 3D printer will not be opened until the internal temperature is below 50.
When we were ready to clean the 3D printing, we opened up our Sinterit Lisa and raised the bed of powder by using an interface for users. While we let the cake cool, there were other steps we needed to complete, including emptying the overflow container, and making sure the post processing equipment is set up.
There are two different sizes of spatulas that are used to remove the cake of powder off to the Sinterit Lisa, which is directly placed on a tray that is not lit. We then began to remove the block of powder in look for the initial SLS 3D printer. Cleaning the print was like an archeological dig sorting through the materials that were not used to find the valuable object.
Once the dust has settled, it's left with efficient as well-quality and top of the line samples. Scraping the powder off can be messy, and it's best to choose a location that can be easily cleaned. Before you start the sandblaster, the Sinterit team has clarified that the aim is scraping as much of the powder off the printing as is possible. This means that you have to go through every crevice in the 3D printing.
This is so important that a substantial portion of the powder could be reused. However, once it's inside the sandblaster it is mixed with the sand particles and cannot be used again in subsequent 3D prints.
The most enjoyable part of this is blasting sand. This small sandblasting device isn't big, but it's evident that using a separate post-processing machine is the preferred choice.
The product that was printed was fantastic. The vehicle chassis had been printed 3D with high-quality resolution . It also was equipped with an active spin-wheel and spring. There were gorgeous features, like the Sinterit logo which was engraved onto the side and the printing was nearly transparent.
Alongside the PA12 which is used for 3D printing the frame, the Sinterit team's Sinterit team also showed the versatility of the material by printing tires for the rim. After the lasers and the powder were removed We were left with an operational prototype that could not be constructed by FDM 3-D printing.
And last and not least The Sinterit Lisa requires some minor cleaning before the prints are wrapped. It was necessary to remove the remaining dust cake out of the printer chamber as well as the overflow bin, and mix it with the remaining powder cake.
To ensure that the powder could be reused, it was required to mix it up with fresh 30% of powder. Sinterit Powder Sieve Sinterit Powder Sieve is utilized to break up the powder prior to making it ready to print your next model in 3D.
One of the topics we wanted to discuss was the program that helped develop Sinterit Lisa. Sinterit Lisa. The program that slicing uses is easy to use and user-friendly. It comes with a color-coordinated print bed that shows the exact spot where your print is placed (green) and also the areas that are not touching (yellow and red).
However, it's important to be aware about the right angle at which for your model. For instance, the angle 45° generally results in the least amount of layers and has the most durability.
In the end, The Sinterit Lisa software is still in its early stages and is still undeveloped. more and more versions that are considered in development by the team that is growing from Poland.
When it came to the SLS 3D printer, which is well-known for its user-friendliness and user-friendliness, it was unfriendly for users. It's not a major problem and will likely improve with time.
The end of our hands-on experiment using the Sinterit Lisa 3D printer, we were able to see an impressive and practical prototype printing of the miniature suspension system used in automobiles. The tiny object was printed as a single piece and includes the wheel spinning and an elastic 3D printed spring and other components which can be moved.
The most notable feature was the high-resolution 3D printing that gives an appearance that isn't layer-like. This is due to the fact that Sinterit's Sinterit logo is clearly visible on the surface of the 3D prototype printed. We also made use of the flexible material of Sinterit to create a rim for a tire that we could put on the rim.
This was our first experience working with SLS 3D printing, and the Sinterit Lisa 3D printer was extremely intuitive and simple to use. It was beneficial having the Sinterit team available to help us out was extremely helpful, but there's no doubt regarding the user-friendliness with this industrial-grade device.
By making SLS technology more compact and economical, Sinterit is making it easier for smaller and medium-sized companies to integrate 3-D printing in their manufacturing process without investing a large sum or occupying space. Larger companies can also use the Sinterit Lisa as an introduction to the latest manufacturing technology. Its 3D printer for desktops is ideal for educational purposes and research.
The simple design of Sinterit Lisa's printer, the simple nature of Sinterit Lisa 3D printer allows even those who aren't experienced to learn quickly how to utilize SLS technology to its maximum potential.
But it's true that Sinterit Lisa is not the type of printer that's suitable for everyone. Sinterit Lisa is not the type of 3D printer that was designed to be ideal for the typical user or the enthusiast. But this strong Polish 3D printer is the most readily accessible SLS machine available and is a great alternative for professional-summers, small-to medium large businesses or educational institutions, as well as those who want to become more comfortable with the power of selective laser Sintering.
