The Vida is an affordable DLP professional 3D printer featuring an open-architecture. This means it can be upgraded and modified without limitation. It is simple to use and maintain showing a bunch of user-friendly features. It is targeted to professional and medical applications, including dentistry, orthopedics, and otolaryngology. Indeed, it has been widely used to print dental crows and arches, prostheses, hearing aids, and more. It is equipped with a high-res projector (1920x1080 pixel) and custom UV optics. After transferring the 3D model to the machine, it allows for standalone printing without the use of a computer. Its open-nature makes it compatible with several materials, giving you wider design capabilities. Read more in the full review.
