The DWS 029J is a high-speed, high-precision SLA 3D printer from the Italian DWS manufacturer. It is targeted at jewelry professionals and creative designers being able to produce high-quality prints in any shape and with an excellent level of detail. With its ultra-low running costs and a valuable price-performance ratio, it is ideal for rapid manufacturing and small-to-medium end-use productions. It is a reliable system with a good build area. It can produce industrial-grade pieces with an optimal resolution on a large scale and in short times. You are free to design the most complex and intricate shape, DW 029J will be able to produce it in its finest form. It can consistently print for 24 hours without the need for manual calibration. It features a branded material system that adopts special cartridges to streamline the refill process and reduce resin waste. It employs Tank Translation Technology, an electromechanical tool that automatically moves the tank at the end of each printing. In this way, it reduces localized wear to the tank, extending its lifespan.
The DW029J is available in two other versions: Plus and Plus HR. Depending on their build area, the standard version grants a production volume of 270 models per day, while the Plus series is capable of manufacturing up to 800 models per day. The optional HR model delivers the highest level of resolution, extra smooth surfaces and filigrees. Read more in our complete review.
The printer is widely used for design testing, fashion and jewelry printing. For example, Sergio Zenere has used the Plus version to produce this custom-made, parametric, intricate pendant.
Thanks to the 029J printer, MADE IN ITALY LAB has been able to fabricate a perfect 3D replica of the “Saliera di Michelangelo”, a silver salt shaker designed by the artist for the duke of Urbino. It has been an exercise in precision and attention to detail, and it turned out perfect.
