The Qidi Tech Shadow 5.5S LCD/MSLA resin 3D-printer is an open printer with a 405 nm light source. The Qidi Tech is compatible with 3rd party resin. Due to the low power of the LED and RGB-LCD technology, the Liqcreate Premium resin range works best on this printer. Most other resins could also work on this printer, however, not all pre-settings are available. Contact us if you need support or have any questions.

About the Qidi Tech Shadow 5.5S resin 3D-printer.
Qidi Tech Shadow 5.5S resin 3D-printer specifications
The Shadow 5.5 S puts conventional FDM printers in the shade with its amazingly high details. Using UV-LCD technology, new possibilities of the highest precision and attention to detail can be realised. This is supported with 8-fold anti-aliasing so that you get even nicer and more uniform models. All of this at an unbeatable price!
According to Qidi Tech: Stereolithography (SLA) and digital light processing (DLP) are two traditional resin 3D printing technologies. In SLA, accuracy is constant, but the speed of the operation is inversely proportional to the size of the work area that the model occupies. In DLP, the speed of the operation is constant, but the accuracy decreases as the amount of work area used increases. UV-LCD offers consistently high speed and precision regardless of how much of the work area is used. The Dual-Z-axis linear rail reinforces the stability of the Z-axis and contributes to higher details.
