Ember Overview

Ember is Autodesk’s high resolution, open source 3D printer. As the first Spark-powered printer, Ember was designed from the ground up to provide an optimal user experience, making the process of creating professional-quality 3D prints as easy and reliable as possible.

Ember uses a Digital Light Processing (DLP) projector to flash each slice of the model, unlike traditional stereolithography (SLA), which builds models using a laser tracing a tool path. This results in a faster, more precise, and more reliable 3D printing process.

Because Ember’s hardware, software, and materials are all open source, everyone from around the world is able to contribute to the effort of continuously improving every dimension of it. 

 Ember's specifications:

  • Printing method: Digital Light Processing (DLP)
  • Printer dimensions: 44cm x 35cm x 33cm (height x width x depth)
  • Build material: Photopolymer resin
  • Build volume: 64mm (X) x 40mm (Y) x 134mm (Z)
  • X-Y resolution: 50 microns
  • Layer thickness: Variable, from 10 to 100 microns (default of 25 microns)
