Founded in 1981 and listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, Roland DG is the world’s number one provider of wide-format inkjet printers (for flat substrates like paper, in 2D!) for the graphics market market. It has proven time and time again to provide excellent customer service, training and support to our end users over the years. Roland DG North Europe A/S is the northern European marketing, distribution and sales arm of Roland DG Corporation, Hamamatsu, Japan. Roland DG Corporation is a worldwide manufacturing leader in the sign, graphic arts, commercial print, packaging, labelling, promotional gift, textile, engraving, milling and 3D modelling industries. These products are primarily used in the printing and medical industries.
Roland DG finds its technology roots in the music industry; the company’s advanced plotting technology was originally used to record the sound waves for Roland Corporation’s line of music synthesizers. This precision plotting technology quickly garnered widespread acceptance during the CAD/CAM revolution of the 1980s and provided the basis for new generations of digital input and output technologies to follow. Within a few short years, Roland DG began introducing a wide variety of groundbreaking products including vinyl cutters, thermal transfer printer/cutters, wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, 3D scanners, 3D Printers, milling devices, and engravers. With its desktop milling machine, the SRM-20 and its desktop 3D-printer the MonoFab ARM-10 it is gaining ground in the market.
About the Roland MonoFab ARM-10 resin 3D-printer.
If you look online, there is not much details to find on this printer, therefore we have gathered informatin from several websites and manuals to have a complete view on this page.

Roland DG MonoFab ARM-10 resin 3D-printer specifications.
Key features of the Roland MonoFab ARM-10.
- – Printer type DLP
- – Wavelength unknown (expected to be 405 nm)
- – Projector resolution unknown
- – XY resolution 200 microns
- – Build volume (L*W*H) 70 * 70 * 130 mm
Looking at the specifications we are a bit confused. Several sources state that the XY resolution of this printer is 0,2mm (or 200 microns). Additionally the build volume is 70 x 70 mm which is quite odd for a DLP printer. Usually DLP printers are not square as projectors are either full HD (1920*1080), 720P (1280*720) or 4K (3840*2160). That would mean that the image is always a rectangle with uneven sides. there is an option that Roland uses 2 projectors in the Roland DG Monofab ARM-20. but in any case the XY resolution is very weird and low for this size. if we calculate 70x70mm build volume at 200 micron pixel size, the projector would have 350 * 350 pixelsm which is not a standard commercial size. So something is off with these specs or we are missing out on something. Alternatively, it is advised to read some reviews as we learned from Develop3D this machine does not run on its own but needs a computer so the printer projector runs as a second screen, which we saw also in the early stages of LCD 3D-printing.
Roland DG MonoFab ARM-10 compatible resin.
Even though this printer is not new, with the limited amount of specifications we can’t tell if Liqcreate resins will run on this printer. At the time of writing, there are no pre-settings for Liqcreate resins on the Roland MonoFab ARM-10.
