Sinterit updates software for Lisa X printer

Feb. 26, 2024
Users can change and fine-tune an array of 32 printing parameters.

Lisa X Sinterit’s biggest compact 3D printer uses 22 heating elements in four heating zones to perform selective laser sintering (SLS). The Industry 4.0-ready printer is an open system, meaning it is compatible with materials from companies other than Sinterit, along with resins from Sinterit, including an onyx-colored polyamide (PA) 11, a PA 11 that safely dissipates unregulated electrostatic discharge, PA 11 carbon-fiber, PA 12, PP and a flexible TPU. Applications of the open system include prototyping and manufacturing complex engineering performance components. In the U.S., several suppliers represent Sinterit. 

What’s new? Software upgrades, available to both current and future users of Lisa X printers. Users of the 3D printer can change and fine-tune an array of 32 printing parameters, and design the shapes they need. 

Benefits Better connectivity, faster printing, customizability and ease of use. According to Sinterit, the printer’s printing and cooling time now is as much as 40 percent shorter than other compact SLS printers on the market. It takes just 15-30 minutes to clean the printer, and materials can be changed in about 15 minutes.
