Taiwanese company Reify 3D launched its Solus yesterday on Indiegogo. As we previously reported, Solus is a high-resolution DLP stereolithography 3D printer with an advanced peeling technology that eliminates the need for replacing or re-coating the resin tank.

Made of solid, laser-cut aluminum with stainless steel components, Solus could print at very high resolutions (up to 25 microns on the xy axes) if paired with an HD projector. It has a large build area of 11x14.5x20 cm and features high quality components such as a stepper motor with integrated precision lead screw and professional-grade, anti-backlash nut.

One of the big disadvantages of some bottom-up SLA 3D printers is their poor peeling material durability. They use either a PDMS silicon coating or an adhesive Teflon on the resin tank to serve as the non-stick surface. These materials often wear out after a few prints causing a severe reduction in print quality or even print failure. Reify 3D has spent the last two years working with experts in the semiconductor and flat-panel industries and found a material and peeling method that offer a solution. They use a high-strength, low-surface energy film in combination with their patent-pending TUF tilt peeling technology. This smooth peeling and unscattered light transmission allow for sharper details, XY features below 100 microns and a very smooth surface finish.

The projector is not enclosed inside of the printer. With its extendable legs, Solus can be paired with a range of DLP projectors from SVGA to HD resolutions to match with the user's budget and requirements.

With its non-restrictive software, Solus can be used with almost any 3rd party resin and has been well tested with resins from MakerJuice and Spot A Materials as well as their own formulations.

The first level of printers offered at 999 USD are all gone. The fully assembled Solus are now available at 1099 and 1199 USD.

Why it takes so long to send my comment out?!

As a DLP 3d printer technology watcher I would say the newly emerged Solus and Kudo3D's Titan 1 are leading in resolution, speed and printer cost. The print quality may be about close to the well established professional EnvisionTEC printers, but look at their price difference! Also, not all projects on Indiegogo would scam pledgers. I don't think it is worth it to have a team working 1000s of hours on the machine and then try to "steal" no more than $50k money via a crowd funding platform. What's the point to do that?

As a campaigner we are bound by Indiegogo's terms of service which include: "Campaign Owners are legally bound to perform on any promise and/or commitment to Contributors (including delivering any Perks)." Being based in Taiwan, we felt Indiegogo was the best crowdfunding platform that is available in our country. As with any crowdfunding campaign it is up to the potential backer to research the company and project. If anyone has any questions about our campaign please email me at

Wow. Those prints look sick. Those look like they came out of our Envisiontec Micro. Any close up shots for the prints?

NEVER FUND WITH INDIEGOGO! Myself, and a number of others, have been blatantly scammed investing through them. They do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to either have funds returned or have grifters prosecuted. This despite the fact the amounts are Federal offenses and they cross international boundaries. Bad arrest press will cost them and they refuse to take legal action.
