Qidi Shadow 5.5 Printer

Qidi Shadow 5.5S LCD Resin Printer

The Shadow 5.5S is Qidi's resin printer, having a build volume of 115mm w x 65mm d x 150mm h (4.5" x 2.6" x 5.9").

LED-generated UV light is masked through a 2560 x 1440 screen to a 0.047 mm resolution in X and Y. The dual rail Z-axis provides 0.00125 mm resolution per layer, though a more practical lower limit to the layer thickness is 0.01 mm. A 3.5-inch color TFT touch screen provide the user interface. A USB port on the side provides attachment to USB flash drives for loading models to be printed. A pair of activated charcoal sachets on the printer's vents help to reduce odor while printing.

The included ChiTuBox slicing software converts stl files into printable models.

Everything needed to set up your printer and generate your first test print comes packed in the box - and the unit is WELL packed!
