Alpha 3D

Features:
  • Supports: manual, automatic
  • Mesh repair: automatic
  • Mesh modification: rescale
  • Slicer: slice viewer, pre-set material settings, anti-aliasing
  • Recommended for dentistry and manufacturing.

Lesson 1: Installation

Download the Alpha 3D software and run the installer. Before installing, please check system requirements first.

Lesson 2: Setting up Alpha 3D

After you install Alpha 3D, the next step is to get your first print up-and-running. This section gives you the general information you need to start up your print, and links you to relevant sections in the rest of the manual that can give you further details.

Lesson 3: How to view in Alpha 3D

Alpha 3D contains several view controls located in the top-right of the interface. This section covers those controls, as well as other view functions with the mouse.

Lesson 4: Movement in Alpha3D

You can move objects in Alpha 3D from two different screens:
  1. Orientation : Rotate and turn an object to choose the ideal position for adding supports and printing.
  2. Layout : Move your part or nest multiple objects in the build area.

Lesson 5: Adding supports in Alpha 3D

Resin-based printers (DLP, SLA, or LCD) require that every part of the print is properly connected to the build platform during printing. Part that are not connected may drop off of the printer and fail. Alpha 3D allows you to automatically add supports and easily modify them to make the perfect print.

Lesson 1: Unboxing Your Printer

After you receive your FreeShape 120 printer, you will need to do a little bit of work to get your printer up-and-running. This section describes all of the setup you need to do for your machine, so you can go from package to printing as soon as possible.

Lesson 2: Setting up Wi-Fi Connection

Connect to a Wi-Fi network that you can access the printer web console and start up prints from your internet browser.

Lesson 1: Printing Using a USB Device

After you set up your FreeShape 120, the next step is to get your first print up and running. This section describes the basic process for getting your printer ready and starting up a print.

Lesson 2: Printing from Alpha 3D

When your print is ready, click [Print] to make a print file.

Lesson 1: Finishing Your Prints

After the FreeShape 120 completes printing, the print still requires some preparation before it is ready for polishing, casting, or applying to a machine or a patient.

Lesson 1: Updating Your Firmware

Check your FreeShape 120 firmware version and update your firmware from this screen.

Lesson 2: Adding a New Resin

If you want to use your own resin with the FreeShape 120, you will need to add material settings to both Alpha 3D and to the FreeShape 120.

Lesson 3: Using the Clean Vat Function

Whenever your print fails, use the Clean function to remove pieces of prints that did not stick to the build platform during printing. The Clean function cures one layer of resin at the bottom of the vat, and then you can easily remove that cured layer and throw away any lingering debris with it.

Lesson 4: Changing the LCD Panel

The FreeShape 120 LCD panel encounters some wear over time. Eventually, pixels on the LCD panel will go dark, and some areas of the panel will not cure as thoroughly as other areas. Ackuretta provides 2 free LCD panels with the FreeShape 120 that can be used for replacement purposes.

Lesson 5: Changing the Vat Film

If the film on your vat becomes damaged, then you may need to replace it. Cloudiness or tears on the vat surface require replacement, but small bumps do not.

Lesson 6: Cleaning Your Vat and Changing Resins

This tutorial will help you to clean your vat so you can change from one resin to another.
