Manufactured in Hampton Roads, VA, the OWL Nano™ is constructed from industrial components. It is designed for easy transport with zero disruption to the printer’s resolution. Its size, aesthetics and quiet operation make it appropriate for almost any setting: in an office or lab, on a manufacturing floor or in a home environment.
Stereolithographic printing is the gold standard in 3D printing. It’s a technique in which a laser beam is used to build up the computer-designed 3D structure, layer by layer, from a liquid polymer that hardens on contact with laser light.
Single strand laser beam, virtually no distortion:
OWL Nano takes traditional stereolithography to a higher level. Unlike other stereolithographic printers, which bounce a laser beam off mirrors before reaching the voxel, the OWL Nano positions its laser source just centimeters from the voxel. This decreases beam distortion and allows the highly tuned, single strand laser to focus on an area as small as 1/10th of a micron.
The OWL Nano’s laser maintains a perfectly perpendicular position below the object it is forming, which creates a more balanced 3D print.
