## lcd sla ##


am I understanding this correctly the Bean has LCD projection? Does this eliminate spherical aberration? If so, any plans for the Titan 2 or 3 with this concept? If they can get the Titan to better the batch printing they will be the front of the pack…


Yes and yes, the Bean will utilize a LCD light board as the curing mechanism and it will remove the spherical distortion caused by the projector lenses. I’m not gonna dump my DLP Titan just yet though. LCD won’t be nearly as intense as the projector bulb so the layer cure times will be longer with the Bean increasing the overall print times. You also loose a little bit of resolution and are constrained to the physical limitations of the maximum focus of the LCD board. I plan on running both printers side by side and using each for different types of models best suited for each type of printer.
