Nexa3D – | The voice of 3D printing / additive manufacturing


Nexa3D, a startup created in 2016, is a manufacturer of ultra-fast polymer 3D printers based in Ventura, California. Its CEO is former 3D Systems CEO and President Avi Reichental, who along with board member Andrea Denaro is also a co-founder of Nexa3D. More recently, the company has also started to focus on other aspects of additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing technology, including software (the NexaX platform). In addition, in addition to its ranges of 3D printers, Nexa3D sells post-processing machines, as well as a wide variety of materials used in the 3D printing process, such as photopolymer resins, which the company produces by combining its own homemade resins. with materials from other major producers such as Henkel.

Their first product, the Nexa3D NXE400 high-speed 3D printer, uses the company’s luminous Undercoat Light Curing (LSPc) engine. Along with a much faster print speed than the average industrial 3D printer, Nexa3D also touts the NXE400’s significantly higher build volume compared to its competitors, as well as a resolution of 76 microns. This means that parts made with Nexa3d printers achieve a surface finish close to that of injection molding right out of the build plate. This makes it an ideal large-format machine for everything from product development to rapid prototyping and mass production of end-use parts in industries requiring components with high-strength durability and elongation at break, such as automotive and aerospace sectors.

In 2020, the company acquired NXT Factory, a manufacturer of selective laser sintering (SLS) machines. With the NXT version of SLS, dubbed Quantum Laser Sintering, the company was able to expand its ecosystem of Nexa3d printers from photopolymer plastics to also include thermoplastics.

Nexa3D’s other main industrial stereolithography (SLA) printer is the NXD200, specifically designed for the high throughput requirements and multi-faceted design iterations involved in dental workflows. Finally, at Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany in 2021, the company launched the next generation of XiP, its first entry into the desktop 3D printer market. Compatible with Ethernet, USB, and WiFi, the XiP allows the individual user to enjoy the Nexa3D industrial-grade photoplastic printing experience. Making its mark not by doing something fancy but by doing what many other companies do better, Nexa3D exemplifies the power of automation inherent in 3D printing and displays a deep understanding of the growing trend of production chains. sourcing to digital manufacturing.
