Along the same lines is this one:
It is also a uv-curing system and it has fantastic resolution.

> 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″).

>> Hey guys,
>> I'm a bit of a lurker, but I thought I would inquire about 3D printers. My office in Toronto (Jam3) has been getting into installations and hardware, and during our last hack-day, while I was hacksawing and drilling aluminum to create a cradle for an arduino project, it dawned on me that we need a 3D printer. The makerbot replicator with dual heads looks tantalizing. Does anyone on this list have experience with this make/model? Is there another make/model that you would recommend for an office, for ease of use, precision, and good value?
