Amazing level of detail

If you can imagine it, MoonRay can print it – and in amazing detail. You can print features as small as 100 microns (0.1 mm) with MoonRay, so all the details you envision while creating your model will be visible on each print. In the photo above, you can see the surface finish of a printed model right off the machine, without any post processing. MoonRay’s incredible dimensional accuracy ensures your model will be printed exactly as you designed it, allowing you to present your concept work as an accurate and highly detailed 3D model. MoonRay also handles complex overlapping geometries with ease, so you’ll never have to simplify your design for 3D printing.

Simple post processing

MoonRay makes the post-printing process simple. Our support structure is very easy to remove -- just gently snap them off. The excellent surface finish you get with MoonRay means you won’t have to waste valuable time sanding your model. When your model is ready for the finishing touches, you can prime and paint over any of our MoonRay resins. With MoonRay Gray Resin, you can even skip the primer and directly paint your model. MoonRay will save you post processing time so you can continue creating.

MoonRay Resin Tank

Up to 50 Liters

Extended Lifetime

Durable and hassle free

MoonRay is solid investment: it's affordable to use and made of high-quality, long-lasting parts. RayOne, MoonRay’s custom-built UV DLP projector, is energy efficient and lasts for 50,000 hours, so you won’t need to worry about expensive bulb replacements. MoonRay’s innovative resin tank is easy to work with -- there’s no messy PDMS layer, and the resin tank lasts for up to fifty liters of resin. Resin tanks for similar 3D printers need to be replaced after every one or two liters of resin used, greatly increasing the cost of operation. We strongly believe artists and designers should not be limited by the cost of high-resolution 3D printing. Our goal is deliver a cost-efficient printer that expands your design horizons.

Generous Build Volume

Print Tall Parts

Spacious build size

MoonRay is an excellent choice for character designers because of its convenient build size, which is taller than most 3D printers offering a similar resolution at an affordable price, making MoonRay a great option for printing both tall figures and character busts. With MoonRay, you can print parts up to 8-inches tall, 5-inches wide, and 3.2-inches deep. You can easily change the orientation of your model in our RayWare software, giving you the flexibility to print a broad range of designs in all sizes and shapes.
