LD-002R LCD Resin 3D Printer Unbox Setup and print
LD-002R LCD Resin 3D Printer
BUILD AND MOTION: Great emphasis is being placed on the LD-002R’s robust build quality and the components of its motion system, which is underpinned by a ball screw and single linear rail for the Z-axis.
ANTI-ALIASING： MSLA 3D printers use an LCD screen to mask an image of a layer over a UV light source. Comprised of hundreds of thousands of pixels, each a little rectangle itself, this tech leaves a telltale sign of the edges of these pixels on the print surface. Often barely visible, this effect can be lessened through the use of a digital processing called anti-aliasing, which interpolates between these edges, smoothing the effect out.
QUICK LEVELING： Quick leveling in the sense that the machine will lower the print plate to the vat for you, yes the LD-002R is quick leveling. Four hex screws feature on the print plate — loosen them before dropping the plate, and it will align to the level of the screen. Tighten and you’re good to go. Standard MSLA fare.
PERFORATED PRINT PLATE： Something of an oddity on a small desktop MSLA machine, the Creality LD-002R 3d printer has a perforated print plate. Typically seen on larger bottom-up machines where larger prints present additional pull that might dislodge an improperly adhered print, it’s unusual, and perhaps even distracting overkill, to see it on a smaller machine. It’s not a bad thing, but it makes you wonder why they did it.
AIR FILTER： A small box at the rear of the print chamber contains a pouch of activated carbon. This should help to remove part of the stench of exposed resin from the air.

LD-002R LCD Resin 3D printer news
I've been printing with an FDM printer for a long time and it works great. I use it for prototyping medical products for my consultancy. I wanted to get a Formlabs machine but could never justify the purchase price and the ongoing materials prices. I decided for $250USD, I'd try the Creality. I have to say, it is amazing what it can do. There are a lot of different materials out there to try and most are compatible with the Creality machine. I've already run at least a hundred parts through the machine and, other than a bit of grease on the linear rail and lead screw, it has worked flawlessly. I wish FDM printing was this easy.
I have been in FDM printing for quite a while. Curiosity got the best of me about LCD printing, so I bought a Longer Orange 10 from Amazon for a very good price. Long story short, I sent it back. Screen failed on the eighth print, replaced it, then the fan died shortly after.
I have not had this printer for long, but the difference in the two is very evident. This printer is much higher quality, and so are the prints. The price was not much higher than the Longer. I have a heavily modified CR-10S Pro, and it is now my work horse. I have no doubt this printer will be the same.
Before I bought this, I have a CR10-v2, but for some reasons I want to try resin printing too. Arrived fast, and I love this little machine. The activated carbon filter fan wont work, but I can solve this problem (the one and only yet). Easy to use, easy to level the print bed, and works like a charm. My statue parts are awesome quality now! I print the bigger parts with the cr10-v2, and the smaller more detalied parts (heads, hands, weapons etc) with this resin printer.
Second print on the LD-002R finished in 3 hrs 32 mins. Loving the printer already. ....
What have we here? LD-002R is the new Creality resin printer. Seems very well built, lets see how it prints 😁 I usually mute my videos but I thought some might want to hear what it sounds like while operating. First test print came out fantastic. Chain links sliced with Chitubox, took 1 hr 31 mins. I used the Anycubic grey resin as the machine did not include any type of sample resin, no big deal if Im being honest. I'll get my hands on some Creality resin at some point to compare.
