This is a stellar product. Setup is quick and easy, and unlike the FDM-type printer I normally use, you basically just get what you ask for every time without having to think about it very much. I spend a few extra seconds tilting imported STL files if needed to ensure that they get supports at a slight angle to the build surface and then just send the job to the printer. My first print was a 100 micron wheel for a filament spool holder, and it took about 15 minutes to print.

It is considerably superior to a 100 micron print on my FDM printer of the same wheel. My second print was a 50 micron model of "Left Shark" plus 5 more wheels. This took about 8 hours to print and it came out perfectly. Compared to dialing in an FDM printer for specific filament this was completely painless. The finish quality is excellent at 50 micron resolution, and of course it will go to 25 micron if you really need it. Since my original review, I have done numerous 25 micron prints for things that I needed to have a very high quality finish or where time was not really an issue, and the surface finish is superb.

Cleanup with alcohol and trimming off supports is only mildly tedious, and certainly less time consuming and error prone that trimming off a brim and finishing FDM printed parts. My only suggestion to anyone buying one of these is to consider buying a small UV curing machine. They look like a toaster oven.

I purchased this printer kit as I was fed up with the failure rates and low resolution prints I got from my makerbot. A friend suggested a DLP printer as I usually need small but accurate prints for my work. The kit arrived within a week of order and was very easy to assemble.

The Steel body of the printer gives it solidity and sturdiness, but the printer does not move much even while printing. The company claims to have made the Conveyor belt of the printer from Italy, and they look good quality to me.

I am hoping it works for long. The software is provided with the printer was a real surprise; it works well which I never expected.

I have made some really small prints and the quality I got was amazing. The printer prints at extremely fast pace never compromising with accuracy. I would suggest this printer for anyone who does not need large printing volume.

I have had this printer for a month and it’s the best thing you can for the price.

Pros:

Cons: I love this printer and feel the cons are basically the time required to learn the printing process of a DLP printer and finding the right kind of angles to print.

I run a design consultancy (Prod Designs) and we have used a lot different kind of 3d printers in our company.

When a colleague suggested this printer we were all skeptical about the quality of the product. I am glad to say that we were all proved wrong, the quality of the printer is excellent, I love the fast printing this printer is capable off. We've used this to create Jewelery, medical prototypes, functional products and a range of product prototypes and have always been impressed with the accuracy and strength of the prints.

This was one of the cheapest DLP printers around but it works on par with many commercial printers. The printer spares are affordable as well and in case of a breakdown I am sure the repairs would be economical as well. The Software provided with the printer is a lag, but the other positives just cover it up.

Great machine for the price. I have been using sla technology for years. This machine rivals or exceeds machines costing much more. Due to the low cost nature some compromises have to be made when printing parts. For example, you have to take care when setting up parts for printing to avoid air pockets and support structure cleanup. A little bit of planning and you can create great prints. One of the most compelling aspects of Uncia Ownership is support. Uncia continuously updates software and resin formulations and I have seen a marked improvement in outputs since purchasing my machine in Nov 2014. If you are reading this and are new to 3d printing other manufacturers of FDM extrusion printers will tell you that FDM resolution matches the Uncia, not true.
