The B9Creator looks interesting.
Hacked Gadgets has an article on them.
Resolutions in the x/y plane (horizontal) of 50 to 100 microns are
possible by adjustment of the projector's position and focus.
Resolutions in the z (vertical) build axis from 100 to less than 10
microns are possible via software selection. Using higher resolutions
in the z-axis may result in slower build rates. We suggest using the
same z axis resolution as the x/y plane.
At the 100 micron x/y pixels setting, the build area is 102.4 mm (4.03?)
x 76.8 mm (3.02?) x 203.2 mm (8.0?).
At the 50 micron x/y pixels setting, the build area is 51.2 mm (2.02?) x
38.4 mm (1.52?) x 203.2 mm (8.0?).
100 microns = 0.1 mm = 0.00394?
