It is a little head-scratching. If they would just email me I would be happy to help them clone it better :D The opaque black hood is my favorite part though by far.

Anyone at SIGGRAPH, at the LA Convention Center this year? We will be part of the new "Making@SIGGRAPH."  I'm moderating this panel (accessible with Exhibits+ and above badges).
+Whosa whatsis  will be on the panel as will Lyn Hoge from Windward School and other friends!
                             
"Integrating Disruption: How Schools Are Using Making to Accelerate Innovation," Monday, 10 August, 3 - 4 pm, Los Angeles Convention Center, Room 506

+Anderson Ta Yes, I started with a 3W UV Led (365nm) and had some success, but changed to a 5W and it's working well. I also have a 10W UV LED but have not managed to try that yet, mostly due to thermal and size issues. I need to make the whole thing more stable and improve the removable tray system a little more.+Whosa whatsis Completely agree. And it's still much less inefficient than a 180W+ desktop projector. DLP should be slightly better at reflecting more light than LCoS, so if you can find a low cost DLP based pico-projector, then consider it as a good option also. (I need to do more research into DLP chip sizes and their optic's).

Lets hack! - then we need more choice of resins...

This is doing something that I've wanted to do forever: Actual mechanical auto-tramming of the platform using three independently-driven Z motors.

Those X/Y leadscrews and carriage-mounted all-metal extruder mechanisms are going to make for a hell of a lot of inertia, though. This does not look like a machine that will be able to maintain good quality at fast printing speeds.
3D printer manufacturer Omni3D has just unveiled the Factory 2.0industrial level 3D printer. With a price tag of just €10,000 (or approximately $11,000), it will definitely catch the attention of a lot of businesses.

+Ryan Carlyle The bed leveling function doesn't necessarily have to be part of the printer controller's mcu circuit. Make it an independent function with it's own independent MCU. When it's leveled then drive it normally. It shouldn't skip steps unless you are using inferior quality components.

The information that's not not here (I had to click through to find it) is that Horus is 3D laser scanning software (intended for the Cyclop). AFAIK, this is the first software of it's type to be available for Mac.

XZEED DLP 3D printer is capable of combining five materials or colors within a 3D print
http://www.3ders.org/articles/20150804-xzeed-dlp-3d-printer-is-capable-of-combining-five-materials-or-colors-within-a-3d-print.html
In an effort to find a solution for being able to print in multiple colors and materials using DLP 3D printing process, Reinout Holtrup ultimately ended up designing and building his own prototype for a DLP 3D printer that is capable of combining five materials and/or colors within a single 3D print.

Pick your limiting factor I guess. Size or Complexity. Moving a row of petri dishes is less complex than moving all the printer electronics. I like your stack idea though, even if it does mean moving everything.

Some comments from Dan Newman (I don't think he's on G+, but somebody tag him if he is) on printer safety, firmware features, and the ways that Makerbots and their clones rely on firmware features to make up for woefully inadequate power supplies. Worth reading.

My new book with +Whosa whatsis  from Apress, "3D Printing With MatterControl" is now available a  either as an "alpha book" from now (partial ebook download with rest of book available later, from the link below) or preorder of the print book. Amazon has it up for preorder, too.
Our "Mastering 3D Printing" was written about a year ago when there were few standards, so it's more of a "why" book to help you think about how to use a printer and where to find more.

MatterControl, from our friends at MatterHackers has emerged since then as a widely-used host program, we wrote the new book to be more of an explicit detailed guide to using host software, with some of the broader material too but more of a focus on just exactly how to get a print.  So the two books have some overlap but are complimentary.

We are excited! Thanks to folks who made suggestions and offered help and advice.
