Print quality

The Apex-maker X1 is equipped with an industrial-grade 16-inch 8K monochrome LCD screen with 7680 x 4320 resolution. Featuring 46 x 46 micron pixel size, it can achieve impressive accuracy and detail from every line and layer, ensuring fewer jagged edges and less deformations in each print run.

A stable movement system with a closed-loop motor ensures reliable motion control, making for perfect prints with regular print speeds of 30–80 mm/h, which can go as high as 180 mm/h. Dual linear guides help produce precise layers with 0.01 to 0.3 mm heights.

Boasting 6X faster printing due to high-speed data transmission enabled by Chitubox’s latest control scheme, the Apex-maker X1 cuts time on any project. Engineered with high LCD transmittance, it cures prints much faster. Plus, a high-energy light source module delivers 10mW/cm², ramping up production speed while reaching remarkable levels of quality.

To provide smooth and hassle-free user experience without the need of manual leveling, the Apex-maker X1 is supplied with a pre-calibrated build plate producing flawless prints from the start.

Another handy feature is an intelligent resin control implying automatic feeding throughout a printing session. Keeping a steady flow from start to finish, this function maintains accuracy and overall print quality. In addition, it constantly monitors the temperature of the resin vat to keep it from cooling down or heating up, and lets one heat the tank up to 60 °С to take on a variety of projects.

 

Materials

The Apex-maker X1 boasts universal material compatibility. It can reliably print in various types of consumables, including 20+ high-performance 405nm UV-curable resins, with outstanding size accuracy, surface quality, and low deformation rate. This is particularly great for making highly detailed miniatures, just like the one below.

 

Build volume

The Apex-maker X1 LCD 3D printer offers a massive build area of 13.9 x 7.8 x 15.7 inches (353.28 x 198.72 x 400 mm) that lets you produce a wide variety of medium-to-large sized smooth prints without the need of splitting them into several parts.

 

Printer controls and software

The Apex-maker X1 3D printer features a responsive 7" color touchscreen with a clear menu structure and user-friendly interface that ensures better control over your projects. Data input is performed via USB and Wi-Fi.

The printer is equipped with a high-resolution HD camera that provides access to the mobile app where you can remotely monitor the whole printing process. Thus, you can always make sure that everything goes according to plan.

The Apex-maker X1 can interact with the major file formats and is fully compatible with Chitubox — 3D data preparation software optimized to work with SLA/DLP/LCD 3D printers. The slicer is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. In addition, the device comes with a free 1-year Chitubox VIP access providing even more useful features, such as smart auto support algorithms, a set of powerful and easy-to-use model repair tools, enhanced island detection, and more. Also, the printer smoothly works with LycheeSlicer.
