Alfawise W10 is a $300 Resin (SLA) 3D Printer

Most 3D printers on the market work with filaments using fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology, but in the past we’ve also seen 3D printers using resin and stereolithography apparatus (SLA) technology. The latter is supposed to enable more detailed, yet faster prints, but storing and keeping the liquid resin is a bit more challenging than simply handling filament.

In the past I had come across two resin 3D printers in the news, namely the infamous Peachy printer, and the $99 ONO 3D printer working with a smartphone, which was introduced in 2016, but the company is still working on the printer, and most backers have not received their rewards. But today, I’ve come across another resin 3D printer with Alfawise W10 that’s available  for $299.99 plus a few dollars for shipping.

Alfawise W10 key features & specifications:

  • Display – 2.5″ full color LCD display
  • Storage – microSD card slot
  • Build size – 98 x 55 x 140 mm
  • Layer thickness – 0.025 to 0.1 mm
  • Print speed – 30mm/ h
  • Laser Lifetime – > 20,000 hours
  • Laser Wavelength – 405nm
  • File format: G-code,STL
  • Power Supply – 100V/240V AC Input, 12V DC output
  • Dimensions – 170 x 170 x 360 mm
  • Weight – 5.4 kg

Printing speed is expressed differently than for filament based 3D printers, and as I understand it 30mm/hour means you can print a 3cm height object in one hour.

The 3D printer ships with a power adapter, a blade, three transparent rubber band, one hex wrench H1.5, one hex wrench H2, one hex wrench H2.5, two paper funnel, two rubber gloves, five cards?, one microSD Card, a card reader, 250ml of resin, a release Film, 4 four “hood” sides, one “hood” top, and dust-free paper.

  1. Bit misleading, It is just a LCD 3d printer, I’d thought that we are at a point where you could buy true SLA 3d printer for 300usd

  2. Question of the day :
    Who made this 3D printer ?
    Can support this 3D printer ?
    We have others which we know who mades and support, but so far, I don’t see any information about support and maker name, don’t have website ?

    1. I’m not sure who makes it, but it’s sold under the Alfawise brand. They have their own website, but seem to have a close relationship with GearBest. When I wrote about it, it was only listed on GearBest. Now I can see a product page has been added to the official website but not much more info, and they link to GearBest to purchase the 3D printer.

  3. Good day to you all,

    this Alfawise W10 was made by a company named, Longer 3D, even on the Longer3D Website you find the exact same machine except they use an orange perspex/acrylic cover for it and they named it the Orange-10…

    Also on the box i recived the Alfawise W10 in, had the Longer 3D LOGO on the outside packaging.

    There’s limited support for this resin printer, cant find a firmware anywhere or to even attempt to try making it more easier to use like with using Octoprint/Alphaprint etc and maybe even having it wireless defeating the need for an SD Card altogether !!

    The Firmware on the Touchscreen is identical too !!

    Sadly no one has ever heard ANYTHING about any type or modifications, even a video cleaning the top cover with a duster doesnt exist LOL

    But meh, it works lol

    Taking mine apart first chance i get for some snapshots and to replace that absurdly loud & useless fan
