He also mentions that professional machines wipe consecutive layers of the goo over the top of the model, whereas this one simply dunks the build platform after each step to achieve the same thing (although apparently it's not quite as good).

blind pig wrote:Was thinking tonight. If you were smart enough, and knew an Electronic Engineer, and had a spare LAZOR!!!! lying around and knew how to plumb in a UV laser into it as well as making the x axis gantry controlled, do you think you could make a 3D printer using a UV cure resin?
