Halot Sky1 Creality Company complete set with resin in Nepal
The printer manages to produce really detailed models in a short amount of time. The printer is essentially 3D printers that print using light to cure liquid resin into layers. The versions use an LCD to shine a UV image into the resin, which cures it into a solid layer. The print bed then rises slightly to let the next layer to cure. This allows you to print a model with extremely fine detail, far more than a standard filament printer can produce, and the result tends to need far less post-processing work to give you a finished product. The downside is that they tend to have smaller build plates than filament (FDM) printers, so you can’t make large pieces on them. They also tend to be a little slower than FDM printers as they have to cure. You will also have to wash the print and further cure it after it has been printed to get the full effect.
The front side of Creality HALOT SKY printer has the touchscreen located on the right side. USB Type A port for a USB drive and a regular USB connector for computer connection is also on the right side of the printer. It comes with a pair of linear rails for moving the build plate on the Z axis. They are sturdy and there’s no backlash during printing. The resin printers has ball screw for the movement in Z axis. This screw is more accurate and offer better repeatability compared to the regular Z screws. It has an ARM Cortex A53 chip with four 64-bit cores and 8GB of flash memory and Wi-Fi. It’s just a regular 4K monochrome module probably used by other manufacturers for larger format resin 3D printers. The 192×120 build plate has some angled cuts on the top to make it easier for resin to drip during printing, and four screws are used for leveling. Creality uses a reflective mirror instead of shining the 120W LED lights directly to the screen. It’s held with only four screws and be easy to replace when needed. Creality HALOT SKYuses a cover that can be remove to manage resin smell, still it gets out of the printer through the carbon filter used. It has a 5-inch capacitive screen which is nice and responsive. It feels just like any regular smartphone screen. There aren’t a lot of menu options available, but the ones present are well thought out and easy to use. The vat is made from aluminum, and it has markings to let you know about the amount of resin you can add. It holds up to 1L of resin which is great. The bottom of the vat also has small standoffs to keep the FEP from touching the table.
It is a 24V,250W fanless unit which is more than enough to power the machine. Idle power draw is around 16W. When the printer has the LEDs on to cure the resin layers, power consumption is about 115W. When idle, the Creality HALOT SKY is dead silent. But when you start printing, the fans start to ramp up and the printer can be heard, but it’s not annoying.
