Below is a summary of the main components of the MAX X.
HoodThe MAX X Hood is constructed of UV blocking hard plastic. This protects the resin from being cured by natural light & the user from UV light emitted.
Front panelThe front panel is the white surround that contains the LCD screen. The LCD screen controls the printer.
Connectivity panelThe rear panel is constructed of a curved black metal sheet with cut-outs housing the power and network plugs. This panel can be quickly removed for service and access to all printer electronics. The stainless steel panel on the lower half is the bottom rear cover.
The side panels are constructed of metal and painted white.
These can be removed by disengaging the black plastic clips and hinge open.
Build platformThe build platform is the centerpiece of the MAX X. It is engineered from anodised steel which makes it extremely durable.
Build trayBuild trays contain the resin during the printing process. They are comprised of a flexible film that moves with the build platform.
Asiga recommends one Build Tray per material. Do not use the same Build Tray for multiple materials as this may create material cross-contamination and transfer of uncured materials.
SPS™ Positioning EncodersAsiga SPS™ technology is managed by 4 position encoders that surround the basin glass. These sensors detect actual build platform positioning to ensure the layers in your 3D printed part are formed accurately.
