The Mono3Z2 panchromatic printer is a visible light printer that uses five different LED sources (405 nm (violet), 460 nm (blue), 525 nm (green), 615 nm (red), and 730 nm (NIR)) to print objects from 3D models. This printer can use two different LEDs at the same time to create multilateral objects using panchromatic photopolymer resins. This range of wavelengths can improve biocompatibility, enables a greater penetration depth, and reduces scattering.
