Aether 1 Features

Automatic Offset Calibration

Advanced computer vision algorithms provide automatic XY offset calibration for a wide variety of tool types and materials, including clear gels and liquids.
Automatic Line Width Calibration

Lines are printed and measured using Aether's cutting-edge computer vision capabilities. Air pressure is adjusted until desired line width is achieved.
Automatic Stage Leveling

The plane of the stage is determined by inductive sensor scan. Geared motors adjust the stage to create parallel alignment. Alignment is then verified and fine tuned until parallel convergence.
Automatic Syringe Tip Cleaning

Automatically clean syringe tips with a bristle scrub, liquid bath, cotton cloth, or combination of all three.
