Creality unveils the new HALOT-MAGE series resin 3D printers packed with 10.3in LCD and 8K resolution, at the 9th Anniversary and Spring Event titled “Reflect and Renew” held on April 9, 2023.
The HALOT-MAGE series, including the HALOT-MAGE and HALOT-MAGE PRO, is Creality’s next-gen solution for resin printing. HALOT-MAGE is the basic version bragging 10.3in masking LCD, 8K high resolution, and an air purifier. Whereas, the HALOT-MAGE PRO excels with a 170mm/h thrilling speed, an innovative resin pump, and the Integral Light Source 3.0. This amazing pair marks a leapfrog of Creality since it released the first resin 3D printer in 2015.
Creality always takes users first and listens to their voices, and the MAGE Series is meant to solve the following user concerns.
- Slow Speed: Users have to wait overnight with the risk of print failure.
- Tricky Resin Recovery: The leftover resin needs to be recovered by hand with a paper funnel. Resin stains are a nightmare.
- Irritant Resin Odor: The odor is quite annoying and distracting. Even getting close to it is torture.
- Unhandy Lid: The lid needs to be removed and then put back every time of adding resin or fetching the print. It wastes time and occupies extra space.
- Limited Size & Precision: Every now and then, the build volume is found to be too small to make a large model, or the final result is just not delicate enough.
So, what does Creality did with these concerns? The answer can be found by taking a deep dive into the great features of the MAGE Series.
170mm/h Hyper Speed
HALOT-MAGE PRO offers a staggering 170mm/h speed without sacrificing quality. It is 3 to 5x faster than the competition. The “Dynax” motion system lifts and lowers the build plate steadily in only 1.2 seconds. Now, users can produce quality prints in just 1 hour. Magic, indeed.
8K Flawless Large Print
The 10.3in 8K(7680×4320) mono LCD boasts 29.7μm XY resolution, more refined and anti-aliasing than the 50μm of a regular 4K printer. The large LCD brings a generous 228x128x230mm build volume, giving you more space to create. Miniatures, prototypes, props… All can be rapidly printed as the final product.
Integral Light Source 3.0
HALOT-MAGE PRO adopts the 3.0 edition of Integral Light. The light uniformity is above 90%, promising consistent quality across the whole print and enabling 0.1mm hand-removable micro supports. The light intensity is as high as 8000μw/cm², able to cure a layer in 1 second with standard 405nm resin. With the new integral light, users can print models with smooth surfaces and crisp contours.
Professional “MageArch” Flip Lid
The flip lid is easy to open and close with one hand and needless to place aside. It is only 1/4 taller when opened, saving more room. The orange tint is practical to block 99.89% of ambient UV light for minimal interference.
Smart Air Purifier
Powered by the printer directly, the air purifier includes a replaceable activated carbon filter that is 5.8 times larger than others. It will remove resin odor effectively and last about 3 months after each replacement. A vent hole is at the back to connect a vent tube.
Smart Resin Pump
HALOT-MAGE PRO features a smart resin pump for auto resin fill & withdrawal. It can refill or recover 1 liter of resin within half an hour. Less messing by hand, and much fewer splashes and stains. The feeding tube is free to stick into any container.
Apart from the printers per se, the ecosystem is also an integral part of an excellent user experience. And, Creality has gone the extra length on this front.
In terms of slicer software, Creality offers the self-developed HALOT BOX that has a simpler workflow and includes many presets. The MAGE Series is also compatible with other slicer software. And, with HALOT-MAGE PRO, you will get a one-year VIP of CHITUBOX Pro completely for free.
In terms of printer control, users can easily manage dozens of HALOT MAGE PRO by the multi-printers control function of HALOT BOX or Creality Cloud.
And it is advised to match the MAGE Series with Creality Wash&Cure station, high-speed release film, Crealtiy fast resin, Creality 8K high precision resin, etc, in order to get optimal performance.
