Creality unveils the new HALOT-LITE large format 3D printer – technical specifications and prices

The voting lists for the 2021 3D Printing Industry Awards are now open. Who do you think should receive the highest honors this year? Give your opinion now.

Chinese manufacturer of 3D printers Creality unveiled the latest addition to its line of desktop resin systems: the HALOT-LITE.

Featuring a larger cast size than the HALOT-SKY, Creality claims their new machine offers “incredible performance” in terms of precision, stability and ease of use. With its 192 x 120 x 200mm build plate and ARM Cortex-A53 processor, the company also believes the HALOT-LITE has the guts to meet not only the needs of consumer or professional users, but also those of short-term industrial users as well.

Creality’s LCD extension

Creality is perhaps best known for its Ender FDM 3D printers, and it launched the new Fast Ender-7 in June, but over the past six months, it has significantly expanded its line of resin systems. While the company’s LCD offering already included the LD-006, LD-002H and LD-002R systems, it has now expanded its portfolio with the launch of its new generation HALOT machine line.

Released in May 2021, the company’s HALOT-ONE represents its entry-level offering, but it still features a high-performance 5.96-inch 2K monochrome LCD display capable of fast curing up to 1s per layer. . The ONE was also launched alongside the higher-end model HALOT-SKY, which features a larger build volume of 192 x 120 x 200mm and a 4K LCD display for more intensive applications.

Since the machines started shipping, Creality has reported “great success” with their launches, especially among designers and hobbyists. The company also showcased HALOT-SKY’s anime figure printing capabilities, and given the high levels of precision and stability provided by the new HALOT-LITE, this outlook has become much easier and more realistic for collectors around the world.

Presentation of the HALOT-LITE

Like its HALOT predecessors, the LITE is configured to operate using Creality’s new proprietary optical system, capable of printing parts with a uniform light density of over 80%. By incorporating the company’s “next generation” light source, the system would avoid common LCD printing problems like uneven curing, due to its high fault tolerance that results in models with fine and detailed finishes.

The HALOT-LITE’s build volume and 8.9-inch screen, meanwhile, is the same as the HALOT-SKY, making the former slightly larger than the 127 x 80 x 160mm plate. Found on the original HALOT-ONE, under the hood the machine is powered by Cortex’s impressive A53 processor, providing it with computing and graphics power that far surpasses that of other LCD 3D printers.

While the LITE features a powerful quad-core 64-bit high-performance motherboard, it is also not designed to be more complicated than Creality’s other printers. The system’s large touchscreen and simple user interface make it accessible to users of all skill levels, while its compatibility with the company’s HALOT-BOX software means even novices can easily start slicing right off the bat.

Overall, Creality says its new machine is designed to “meet the needs of a greater number of users in different industries”, and suggests that it now offers the performance needed to bring LCD 3D printing to the next level. office beyond its traditional dentistry or jewelry applications, and further into a larger anime and gaming arena.
