UniFormation GKTwo 3D Printer Impresses with High-Quality 8K Printing Capability

UniFormation GKTwo offers larger build area and advanced hardware suite to enhance the printing experience

Resin printers can be complicated to use, but the UniFormation GKTwo seeks to change that with a larger build plate and advanced hardware suite to offer a better printing experience. The 10.3-inch 8K resin printer comes with a handy touch screen and a hinged door, making it easier to navigate the build space.

While most resin printers under $1,000 lack sophisticated interfaces and require the removal of a shell to access the build space, the GKTwo’s design stands out. It comes with a heated resin vat, which dramatically reduces printing time. This feature is typically found in more expensive resin printers, making the GKTwo a standout in its price range.

Additionally, UniFormation offers a washing station and curing station as accessories for the GKTwo. The washing vat is specifically designed to allow users to place the build plate directly into it to begin the cleaning process, providing added convenience. The curing station features four light strips with four UV LEDs each, ensuring that every angle of the print is exposed to the same amount of light.

However, the printer falls short in terms of software. The recommended slicer feels barebones, and there’s no way to send files wirelessly to the printer. With no remote monitoring capability, the user experience could be improved. While Chitubox adds more features, it still lacks remote monitoring.

Despite these software limitations, the GKTwo delivers consistently good prints. The 8K panel produces detailed results, and any failed prints are often due to user error. However, maintenance issues, such as re-leveling the build plate, are not communicated through the software, potentially leading to frustration for new users.

Overall, the UniFormation GKTwo offers a compelling package for resin printing enthusiasts, but the software limitations highlight an area for improvement in the industry as a whole. As consumer-grade resin printers aim to make the printing process more user-friendly, there’s a need for better software to complement the advanced hardware features.
