Qidi Tech is well known in resin 3D-printing with the release of their Qidi Tech Shadow 5.5S and i-Box Mono 4K resin 3D-printers. With their new monochrome resin 3D-printing, they are followed mainstream companies in faster resin 3D-printing technology. Liqcreate would like to thank our partners at nozzler.fr for optimizing Liqcreate resins. Although some resins are optimized, technically all Liqcreate resins can work on this printer. If your preferred resin is not listed, please contact us and we can provide a good set of starting settings.

Qidi Tech Shadow 6.0 Pro Monochrome resin 3D-printer specifications
Shadow 6.0 Pro is the successor of the proven Shadow 5.5 S. According to the manufacturer, the Shadow series by Qidi Tech is known for the quality and stability due to the good components used. QidiTech stated that with the Shadow 6.0 Pro you have a decent entry-level LCD printer that leaves nothing to be desired.
With the new Matrix UV-LED module, printing precision has been significantly improved and has a higher exposure intensity. Ultimately, thanks to the new Matrix UV-LED module, you have better printing results and faster working times. Shadow 6.0 Pro works with a 6 inch 2K LCD display, which is slightly larger than conventional entry-level printers with 5.5 inches. This leads to a larger build area of 130 x 70 x 150 mm and a larger capacity of the resin tanks. This allows you to fill in 20% more resin compared to Shadow 5.5 S. With 2K LCD screen (2560 x 1440) you get good details due to the pixel size of of 47 microns.
