Most 3D printers are relatively large in size and take up a lot of space, but a new printer has recently been developed whose dimensions 18 x 31 x 41 mm And the weight is only 17 grams Is. The manufacturer of this device claims that its product is the smallest 3D printer in the world.
YouTuber with the username My N Mi has shown in a video how his small 3D printer can print a model of a small robot in a few minutes. This device is apparently a combination of Wood, plastic and an engine It is built to move the printer plate. On this page there should be a LEDs There is, of course, it is not found in this video and it is reflected in the gum material.
Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printers work the same way on a larger scale, only scaled down. In a part of this video, we see that the user fills the printer chamber with resin with a syringe. Also, the energy of the device through a microUSB cable Supply and data are also sent to the device with this interface.
The world’s smallest 3D printer has high accuracy
My N Mi claims in this video that his printer can print objects of max 11 x 11 x 17 mm carefully 0.135 mm to make For comparison, we can point to the Anycubic Photon M3 printer, which is one of the best 3D printers on the market with an accuracy of 0.01 mm, but its weight reaches 7 kg.
At the end of the printing process, the result is taken out of the printer and we can see that very fine details can be seen on its surface. In other words, for a printer of this size, such a level of detail is not only acceptable, but seems beyond expectation.
Unfortunately, more detailed information about the parts of this printer is not available and we don’t know if this manufacturer intends to publish more details about it or not.
