KOKONI, a Chinese 3D printing brand, has launched the KOKONI SOTA, the company’s latest 3D printer, at this year’s CES. This printer is the fastest 3D printer currently available. It also achieves unprecedented accuracy and stability.
With a maximum printing speed of 600mm/s and acceleration of 21,000mm/s², the KOKONI SOTA is capable of keeping up with demanding production schedules. The printer’s custom high-speed stepper motor and close-loop motor system enable a smooth and reliable performance.
KOKONI embeds the upside-down design in the company’s consumer-grade 3D printers. Inverted designs are said to provide exceptional stability and virtually no vibration. This design allows for high speed printing with a low sound level of less than 30 dB. Additional benefits include the ability to print overhang structures. KOKONI SOTA has an advanced optical radar that provides precision and accuracy. The close-loop motor controller monitors the real-time position and adjusts for any errors. The KOKONI SOTA is also very stable, thanks to the company’s use of upside-down printing and full-metal structural support.
The KOKONI SOTA is designed to make 3D printing as effortless as possible – with no assembly or manual bed leveling needed, the ability to print remotely through a WiFi connection, and a mobile app-based modeling tool. The AI-powered 3D modeling software allows users to create printing models with ease – whether hand-drawn or with photos. The template library is constantly updated and contains thousands of customizable models. Water-soluble support material can also be removed easily by rinsing.
With KOKONI SOTA’s advanced AI system, the entire printing process is carefully monitored, and any issues can be addressed in real time. This includes everything, from Spaghetti and Breakage Detection through to low filament alerts and the resume-printing feature.
Multi-color and multi-material printing technologies allow for greater vivid printing. The KOKONI SOTA features seven-color synchronous printing, and also supports seven printing materials, including PLA and PETG, with its 90° hotbed and 260° all-metal hot end.
