Aha Star Features
Configurable build volume
The star is made-to-order to your precise build volume requirements, and can be as small as 500 x 500 x 500 cubic mm, to as large as 2.25 x 2.25 x 2.25 cubic meters, and everything in between!
This means that, depending on your application, you can order the right star for general prototyping jobs (a perfect cube), foundry patterns and moulds generation (square cuboid where large height isn’t required), automobile parts (more wide than tall, to accommodate parts like bumpers and dashboards), aerospace components (more tall than wide to produce tubular structures and blades), medical prosthetics applications (more tall than wide) and everything else, including your business.
Interchangeable tool heads
The tool head is what brings the core “making” functionality to the Aha Star. It specifies what materials can be used for the job, the speed of material deposition, the number of materials that can be used simultaneously, and how can the machine can recover from material flow errors when they happen
For more details, read on:
The basic toolhead
The basic toolhead is the entry-level option, to get you started with the Aha Star. It features air-cooled radiation, and offers a material deposition rate of 15 cc per hour. You can use plastics upto a melting point of 300 degrees C.
The standard toolhead
The standard toolhead unlocks the power of the Aha Star, and features a high-flow rate material output option of a respectable 150 cc per hour. It features nozzles with a working temperature of upto 500 degrees C, so basically you can use all the imaginable thermoplastics with the Standard toolhead.
A customized toolhead depending on your requirements can be developed and used with the Aha Star! Sky is the limit, literally. Think speed, colours, materials, composites, clay, plastic pellets, cement, chocolate, or any application that you have in mind!
Temperature controlled bed and build chamber
High-performance engineering plastics like ABS, PC and Ultem are challenging to process because they undergo deformations like warpage, shrinkage and delamination while 3D printing.
To achieve great results with such materials, the Aha Star offers you a temperature controlled bed and build chamber. This enables maintaining the perfect environment for the material being printed, both during and after printing, ensuring accurate and strong prints even with the most challenging of the materials.
Choice of servo drive systems
The drive system moves the tool head as per design to be created. Conventional 3D printers use “stepper” drive system, which makes the tool head move accurately, but can’t notice the motion that is actually happening. It blindly executes the commands coming from the design program, heedless of real-world motion errors.
