Best in class print size, volume, and speed at the lowest cost of ownership
The NXE 400 photopolymer 3D printer boasts an unprecedented 16L build volume, delivering unmatched speed and throughput without compromising on accuracy or repeatability. The NXE 400 industrial photopolymer printer features patented Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc®) technology, delivering accuracy and tolerances with a superior surface finish by turning SLA printing technology on its head.
Since desktop SLA printers are “inverted,” meaning they print upside down, they cure against a vat bottom or vat membrane. Care must be taken to peel the part away from the vat — typically a slow and delicate operation. LSPc technology leverages a self-lubricated, flexible membrane that resists sticking to both the printed part and the underlying LCD screen, which allows much faster printing speeds.
Meet all your unique industrial, R&D and manufacturing requirements using this ultrafast 3D printer which is completely modular in design with interchangeable parts, making it easy to upgrade technology and mitigate against obsolescence.Request a Free Sample
Featuring 2.5x greater build volume (16L) compared to SLA and DLP-based technologies, the NXE 400 photopolymer 3D printer allows for much larger parts, higher part throughput, and ultimately lower part cost — all with higher-resolution pixels (76.5 µm) and isotropic prints.
Nexa3D’s patented 3D printing LSPc process enables production speeds that are up to 6.5x faster than other 3D printers from the same class. Uniform exposure and process control also ensure production build speeds at the highest quality levels.
NXE 400 industrial resin 3D printers are scalable to meet manufacturing demand, offering a wide range of materials to meet performance needs — including PP-Like, ABS-Like, and engineering-grade functional materials. Additionally, there are specialty materials tailored specifically for the production of high-temperature components.

“Because we can iterate so much quicker, print tools faster than we can machine, and eliminate a couple of the steps in the process, our R&D team can afford to be wrong. This helps us to greatly improve our time-to-market, allowing us to be quick and nimble with our design decision-making process.”

The Everlast-2 Membrane provides superior print speed, surface finish, and fidelity as well as tremendous functional durability. Membranes last at least 50,000 printed layers — up to 25x longer than alternative interface layer technologies.Watch Video
Nexa3D’s print process uses a patented Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) 3D printing engine. Different from DLP, where edge-to-edge performance can be compromised due to optical distortions, LSPc delivers a uniform, high power and distortion-free image to all areas of the build plate to ensure part-to-part accuracy and uniformity. LSPc, a type of masked stereolithography (mSLA) technology, is faster than stereolithography (SLA) and other mSLA technologies. Our self-lubricated, flexible membrane overcomes the delamination forces that accrue during any inverted, vat based printing process, thus enabling best-in-class print speeds.Learn More
