Inspired by an article "A third industrial revolution" from "The Economist" magazine, Tedd Syao started Kudo3D in 2012 aiming to make a perfect tool for anybody interested to explore the potential of 3D printer.

Kudo3D's Titan 1 is an easy to use and upgradable desktop DLP Stereolithography (SLA) 3D Printer. DLP Projector based printers have been gaining in popularity in the last few years. The projector shines on the surface of a liquid plastic resin that hardens when exposed to a certain wavelength of light. The light draws and hardens a layer at a time until the entire model is built.

Now Kudo3D is preparing to launch a Kickstarter campaign for their Titan 1 DLP 3D printer. With the patent pending passive self-peeling technology (PSP) for bottom up SLA, Titan 1 features 2.7 inches per hour print time, 9.5 inches tall print size with a 7.54" x 4.25" build base (192 x 108 x 241mm), and min 37 micron XY resolution / 1 micron Z resolution.

Titan 1 is claimed to be the fastest personal SLA printer in the market today. Titan 1's maximum speed for xy:50μm and z:100μm resolution is about 2.7 inches (69mm) / hr, for xyz:100μm resolution is about 1.3 inches (33mm) / hour. Below is a comparison chart of Titan 1 with other SLA / FDM 3D printer on the market:

Key components of Titan 1 include a HD 1080p DLP projector, an industrial grade linear stage module, open-source controlling circuits, a stepping motor, a fast leveling build platform, and Kudo3D's PSP resin container. "The flexible PSP resin container comprised of 6 different materials was devised to minimize the separation force of a cured layer so that fine features, even those as delicate as a strand of hair, can survive the printing process." notes Kudo3D.

Titan 1 can print a single object using multiple colors. During printing, users can easily change different colored resins to achieve the desired coloration. The Titan 1 is compatible to all SLA photoresins sensitive to 400nm light. In addition, since the PSP technology employed Teflon, users can use materials from any vendors by setting proper exposure time.

Titan 1 is a completed invention, and Syao hopes to use the funds from Kickstarter to open an assembling line in California. The Kickstarter campaign will launch on May 27. It offers a "super early bird special" which gives the first 10 units away for $1,899, which is $300 off of regular pledge levels. The campaign also offers 20 units for $1,999 as 'early bird special', including the printer with the RED ruby cover, 500 mL of resin, and the starter kit.
