Peopoly launches Phenom L and Noir MSLA 3D printers – Technical specifications

certification

Peopoly, a Hong Kong-based 3D printer manufacturer, has announced the launch of two new 3D printers in its Phenom series of SLA systems. Named the Phenom L and the Phenom Noir, each of the systems presents an upgrade in size and speed over the previous Phenom, launched in October 2019.

The Phenom L is positioned as a larger alternative to the original Phenom, equipped with a 50 percent larger build volume. The Phenom Noir on the other hand has been built as a faster system, potentially capable of printing 80-100 percent faster.

Peopoly: Polymers for the people

Founded in 2016, Peopoly is a developer of hardware and consumables for SLA 3D printing certification. The company originally began life as a Kickstarter project, having launched its first SLA system, the Moai, on the platform in 2017. A successful project, Peopoly raised $250,000 in funding, and delivered its Moai 3D printers to customers in 50 different countries. 

Since then, the company launched its own website, and then released an upgraded version of its first system, the Moai 200, in September 2018, and then the Moai 130 in January 2019. 

Continuing its steady stream of printer releases, the company launched another 3D printer in late 2019 known as the Phenom. Differing from its predecessors, the Phenom leverages MSLA technology, which is described as an LCD+LED approach. MSLA involves selective exposure to sensitive resin with lights masked by LCD. The approach is said to be faster than SLA when printing larger parts or a full plate of small objects, as entire layers are cured in one go, instead of curing point by point. Applications for MSLA include rapid prototyping, on-demand manufacturing, small-batch production, medical and dental, and jewelry.

The Phenom L and Phenom Noir

The Phenom L and the Phenom Noir both continue to leverage the MSLA technology of the original Phenom 3D printer. 

The Phenom L is equipped with a 345.6 × 194.4 x 400 mm build volume, compared to the 276 x 155 x 400mm size of its predecessor. It is said to be capable of printing 20 percent faster than the Phenom as well. It features a new build plate design to facilitate larger prints, however it is still built with a focus on ease of use. 

The Phenom Noir on the other hand has been developed with a significant focus on speed. It uses a monochrome LCD panel that significantly reduces UV light waste, thus leading to faster print times. Peopoly explains that when used in conjunction with its Deft resin, users can expect an 80-100 percent increase in speed over the original Phenom. The Phenom Noir also has an LCD Panel with a life expectancy that is 3-4 times longer than the standard Phenom. Additionally, it is also larger, featuring a build volume of 293.76 × 165.24 x 400 mm.
