The current build volume is 60mm(X) 40mm(Y) 100mm(Z) with a build speed of approx 2 minutes per 1 mm at .05mm layer height. It will take some time to complete a 50 mm model but if you have checked out other options you will notice that it is not that bad. More details on the technical specifications are available here :

Basically Rasin printers use liquid light-sensitive resin which can be controlled using +2000 lumen DLP projector or a near-UV laser.

To start the 3D printing process you can choose from a number of selected programs. Envision Labs Creation Workshop or STL Slicer or  Projector Controller or Gcode Sender.

Basically these apps will use the DLP projector as a second screen on your PC and emit lumen as per requirement for the resins to build the 3D image. If our example we will be using the recommend Creation Workshop, a free software for non-commercial usage.

Start by opening any 3D model file (STL, OBJ, or 3DS) (Click on the Open button to load the file for Printing)
