Examples of power* difference of different LCD & MLCD printers, which significantly affect the exposure times around 5-10 seconds per layer or more:

  • Examples of several standard multicolor LCD printers:
    • Anycubic Photon Zero 0.27/0.30 mW/cm2*
    • Longer Orange 30 0.29/0.31 mW/cm2
    • Anycubic Photon S 0.43/0.46 mW/cm2
  • Examples of several monochrome LCD "MLCD" printers:
    • Phrozen Sonic Mini 4K: 0.60/0.70 mW/cm2
    • Phrozen Sonic Mighty 4K: 0.79/0.93 mW/cm2
    • Phrozen XL Mono 4K: 1.05/1.30 mW/cm2
    • Creality LD-002H: 1.40/1.80 mW/cm2
    • Anycubic Photon Mono X: 1.70/1.90 mW/cm2
  • Examples of power differences of two new units of the same MLCD printer model
    • Commercial mono 4K printer unit 1: 1.05/1.15 mW/cm2
    • Commercial mono 4K printer unit 2: 1.10/1.30 mW/cm2

*Note: power in mW per cm2 across the vat expressed with two values: low value in the corner/high value in the centre of the vat
