April 27, 2022
The Lisa X has a more powerful laser and a much larger build volume.

Lisa X Kraków, Poland-based Sinterit manufactures selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printers in the compact and industrial-sized range. All its printers offer an open printing system, with 32 parameters that users can adjust to optimize their prints, and the ability to use third-party materials for printing. Sinterit sells its printers in the U.S. through a partner network.

What’s new? The Lisa X, which debuted in November at Formnext 2021. Pre-orders began arriving in the U.S. in April, and customers can now order the printers with an expected three-week lead time.

Benefits Speed and build size. The earlier Lisa Pro printer moves its laser via a gantry system to print each layer; the Lisa X prints 10 times faster using a more powerful laser and a Galvo system, which directs the laser beam using movable mirrors. The Lisa X is the largest compact SLS printer the company offers. Most parts can be printed in 24 hours, while its full bed can be printed in 34 hours. The Lisa X has a 9-inch interactive touch screen, and a built-in camera for monitoring builds in progress. Material changes can be accomplished in 15 minutes.
