3D Printing With Ember
Resolution, Accuracy, Precision and ReliabilityAt the core of Ember is a high quality digital projector designed for 3D printing.
Resolution: 13.7 billion voxels in the build volumeThe light engine uses a TI DLP® digital micromirror device (DMD). Designed for industrial precision and high resolution, the DMD contains over 1 million mirrors spaced 7.6 microns apart in a compact footprint.
Accuracy: All glass opticsThe light engine optics are all glass. Designed to be highly accurate, efficient and to perform consistently at 405nm with no degradation.
Precision: Designed and built by ExpertsPrecision industrial digital projectors are complex. That’s why we worked with a TI Authorized DLP Design House to design and build a high-quality system from the ground up.
Reliability: High-power LED that lastsThe light engine use a high-power 405nm LED that has a life span of 20,000 hours.
Speed and Throughput
17 rings every 2 hours
All the parts on the build plate are built simultaneously. The more parts you build the more efficient the process and the higher the return on your investment.
Send jobs over ethernet, WiFi or USB from Spark powered applications.
Engineered for Simplicity
Quick build head calibration and interchangeable resin trays make Ember simple to use.
High Detail CMYKW
Print precision, detailed models in any color
High resolution and high speed resins, optimized for prototyping. Designed to reduce degradation of the resin tray and keep you printing continuously for weeks.
Produce patterns ready for casting
Autodesk worked closely with jewelers and casters to formulate an investment casting resin optimized for Ember. Developed to maintain feature definition and for ease of casting.
Analysis & HealingAdvanced analysis and healing tools help you identify and fix any issues with your 3D files before you start to print
Support GenerationPrepare models for reliable printing with Automatic or manual support generation.
SlicingAdvanced surface smoothing algorithms produce parts with the highest quality, ready for production.
Printer ManagementManage multiple printers and send jobs via USB, Ethernet or WiFi.
Print directly from any Spark Powered Application
Autodesk built Ember to showcase the power of our Spark 3D printing platform. In addition to setting the standard for 3D print preparation, Spark enables you to go directly from design to fabrication seamlessly from any Spark Powered software, including Fusion 360 and Inventor.
