    Hello Printer,

    Nice job, I’m also building one and hopefully get good results :)
    Are you planing to release some info about the resin you use ?
    I have been visiting Dymax Office in Shenzhen ( China ) a few days ago, and should get some samples (visible light curable and low viscosity).
    I will also looking for cheaper alternative from chinese supplier… if this is of interest for you please let me know .

    Best regards ,

    Olivier

      Hi Oliver, The Dymax is fine for POC ( Proof Of Concept ), but expensive for everyday use. I have posted about where the resin is from – just read ;-). Chemicals from China have to get through a lot more paperwork and certification when imported in the European Union, so for now I do not want to deal with it, but will keep you in mind.
      Thanks!

    Hi Printer,
    Could you give us an idea about price for the resin?

    Hello,
    I was wondering is the resolution better than the up or reprap? I am an engineer looking to build a three d printer. This seems like a whole different approach. I think that this is the way printing may be going. the resolution of the up 3 d printer is .2 i think. I must say this was a great video. very inspiring, Junior V. has been building i think something similar.
    Thanks for your time

      Hi Pete,
      The resolution is better – 0.041mm in X and Y and 0.025mm in Z. There are some ( Ultimaker ) FDM printers that are close to 0.025mm in Z, but there is still the matter of the marks from the extrusion of plastic. This can scale up or down as you require.

      Cheers!
      Peter
