The Phrozen Sonic Mini is a professional high-speed MSLA 3D printer produced by the Taiwanese company Phrozen. It is the compact version of the Phrozen Sonic, featuring the same self-designed mono-LCD technology. The Sonic Mini is priced to please. No wonder that it has been named the best budget 3D printer of Spring 2020 by All3DP.
The machine features an injection-molded case, which makes it lightweight and portable. The resin VAT is made of metal and comes with a standard metal tensioning plate for easy replacement. The sturdy Z-axis benefits from a linear guide with lead screw, which makes it stable and robust. The transparent 5.5-inches LCD screen adopted lets more UV light to pass through, speeding up the overall curing time. That’s why the Sonic Mini is capable of curing a single layer in just two seconds (or even less). Like all the Phrozen 3D printers, the Sonic Mini is engineered with the own-brand ParaLED optical engine, designed to provide a uniform as parallel as possible UV light exposure to the entire build plate.
Ideal for both home and professional applications, the printer can be used to produce several models, including miniatures, jewelry prototypes, toys, and more. Read our Phrozen Sonic Mini’s review to learn more about this well-priced Masked Stereolithography resin 3D printer.
