The design of the Alkaid is a testament to Geeetech’s commitment to combining form and function. The robust construction of the printer, coupled with the innovative integration of UV lamp beads at the bottom aluminum substrate of the machine, sets it apart from competitors. This design not only augments the heat dissipation area but, along with a cooling fan, effectively reduces the lamp board’s temperature, thereby extending the lifespan of the UV lamp beads.
6.08 Inch Monochrome in 2K Resolution
The 6.08-inch monochrome with 2K resolution guarantees a high lifespan and 0.051mm printing accuracy. Combined with the high-transmittance black and white molding screen and a new generation of matrix light source, the Alkaid can achieve an average printing speed of 1.5s per layer, reaching up to 120mm/h.
The new generation of matrix light source paired with a high transmittance black and white molding screen propels the printer’s performance. This combination powers the Alkaid to achieve an average printing speed of 1.5s per layer or up to 120mm/h.
Tilt control panel
The ALKAID features a 3.5-inch color touch screen as its control panel. This, coupled with Geeetech’s signature ergonomic design, presents users with a generously angled control interface. This thoughtful design aspect distinguishes it from competitor machines, offering users a much more comfortable and intuitive control experience.
The high-cost, high-rigidity, self-aligning linear guides adopted for the Z-axis boost not only the printing accuracy but also play a pivotal role in enhancing the overall print quality.
Quick FEP Replacement
To simplify the process of changing the release film, ALKAID has innovatively restructured its release film fixing mechanism. In comparison to previous generation methods, now all it takes is the fastening of 14 screws for a swift and straightforward exchange of the release film.
It is compatibility with CHITUBOX, a leading slicing software in the 3D printing industry. This integration allows users to prepare their digital 3D models with great ease and precision before printing.
The Alkaid’s expansive printing dimensions of 82mm (3.14″) * 130mm (5.11″) * 190mm (7.48″) make it a versatile addition to any workspace, whether hobbyist or professional.
