NXE 400Pro vs. Origin One Comparison
The NXE 400Pro and Stratasys Origin One are the two most popular high-speed, industrial 3D printers available. Here is a simple comparison between the two systems to help you determine which one is better for your particular application.
Nexa3D® NXE 400Pro
For labs, workshops, and production facilities that need large volume resin 3D prints, NXE 400Pro is the largest and fastest in its class thanks to its proprietary LSPc® tech.
Stratasys® Origin One
Origin One is one of several Stratasys resin-based 3D printers. Origin One offers high-speed 3D printing utilizing its P3™ tech for manufacturing and prototyping applications.
|LED/LCD (4K, 405nm)||DLP (4K, 385nm)|
|275 x 155 x 400 mm (17 L)||192 x 108 x 370 mm (7.5 L)|
|NexaX Pro||GrabCAD Print|
|Open with 19 validated engineering resins||Open with 14 validated engineering resins|
|Automatic||Manual Pour In|
|xWASH and xCLEAN – washes two full builds at once||Requires 3rd party solution such as Branson 8800 ultrasonic bath, IPA, and Tupperware|
|xCURE cures up to three builds at once||Requires 3rd party solution such as Dymax ECE5000 Box|
3D Printing Technologies
Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing utilizes a proprietary membrane that reduces peel force enabling high-speed 3D printing for parts small and large, solid and latticed. An industrial LED light engine further enables high resolution and high precision 3D printing.
Programmable PhotoPolymerization (P3) is a version of DLP with a variety of sensors to control variables throughout the print and an inflating membrane that acts to remove the print from the vat bottom.
NXE Pro Series
xWash / xCure
The NXE Pro Series offers two purpose-built post-processing accessories. The xWASH holds up to two full builds in its 40 L volume and completely washes residual resin in a 2-4 minutes. The xCURE can hold three full builds and has the ability cure and heat parts with preset profiles built in.
Origin One does offer a purpose built post-processing solution, but they do recommend a list of third-party options. The wash baths tend to use ultrasonic waves. The Branson 8800 is a standard example with a bath volume of about 20 L – meaning parts may need to be washed in batches.
Build Volume Comparison
With a build volume of 17 liters, NXE 400Pro has more than double the build volume of the Origin One (7.5 liters). Broken down by axis, NXE 400Pro is 43% wider on the x-axis, 43% deeper on the y-axis, and 8% taller on the z-axis. Thanks to advanced part stacking combined with core LSPc tech, this translates into a difference of hundreds of additional parts per build on the NXE 400Pro without any increase in time.
