Thought this group may find this news of interest.

The world’s first pressure controlled 3D printer (Elemental) is a modular 3D printer that solves three main problems with personal 3D printer technology: ease of use, expense and reliability.

The Kickstarter campaign launched last week and is about bringing Elemental from prototype to production. Early pledge point starts at $950 (AUD). See how Elemental is changing 3D printing at:

This revolutionary 3D printer fills the gap between low-end hobbyist machines with limited resolution and high-end printers that cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Elemental's key points to note are:

• Simple design that is attractive and functional
• Multiple printing modes with resin only or resin suspension
• Quiet when printing and simple to use
• Minimal calibration required
• Patent pending technology
• Reduced dependency on support structures

System specification include:

• Very large build area for SLA - up to 200mm x 200mm x 200mm (7.87in x 7.87in x 7.87in)
• Z control accurate to 1 micron
• 24-bit XY control resolution (variable through software)
• Variable output 405nm laser
• Pressure control of layer height
• Stand-alone SD-card printing
• Bluetooth functionality

You can get more information on the printer at the kickstarter link.
