Peopoly’s Moai 3D printer began as a personal project between a pair of friends (Shu Peng & Richard Li) who wanted a better option that could go beyond what RepRap, Ultimaker and other kit-based printers had to offer. After building several of those machines, they set out to design their own and gave birth to the SLA-based Moai, which boasts to be both affordable and easy to assemble.

As far as Moai’s details are concerned- the machine is outfitted with a fully adjustable 150mW UV laser with a 70-micron spot size, which is galvo-controlled for precision movement. What’s more, it has a large build volume of 13 X 13 X18cm and can work with nearly any G-code and slicer platform on the planet, uploaded via SD card only.

To take advantage of their high-resolution laser, Peopoly designed their own high-polymer resin, although you can use other types as well, including wax and even dental-grade resins. The laser head can be adjusted to handle most anything and at your desired resolution, well down to 70um at any rate.

Peopoly has already successfully crowd-funded the Moai on Kickstarter, grossing over 130K over their target goal of $30K and they still have over a week left in their campaign. Furthermore, they believe their 3D printer can appeal to more than just makers with applications for jewelers and dentists as well, which makes sense considering you can produce molds and casts of just about anything.

As far as other SLA-based machines go, the Moai is one of the more affordable about to hit the market with a beginning pledge of $900 and up, which nets you the kit and a liter of Moai resin. It will be interesting to see what can be made with this 3D printer and if the reviews will sing its praises.
