AO Backpack Features

AO Backpack separation blade - automated blade separating newly printed parts from the platform

Separation Blade

Say goodbye to the hammer you’ve been using to separate parts from the build plate. The automatic separation blade uses incremental tolerances to consistently separate parts from the build plate between every print.

Parts Basket

Collect parts from multiple prints automatically, printing up to 12 hours and collecting upwards of 230 parts, depending on design and geometry. Wake up to a batch of ready-to-go parts and keep production flowing effortlessly as the Backpack starts the next job.

AO Backpack resin reclaim - allowing the resin to drip back into the reservoir

Resin Reclamation

The AO Backpack’s parts collection basket is engineered to capture unused resin from recently printed parts. Its proven design allows for the reclamation of resin by draining it away from the printed parts, leading to a more cost-effective and sustainable production process.

Automatic Resin Refill

The AO Backpack leverages reservoirs to enable automatic resin refill, maintaining optimal resin levels for each print while minimizing downtime.
