B9Creator – A High Resolution 3D Printer

Great Kickstarter project for high resolution 3D printing.

Right from the beginning I wanted the B9Creator to be different. Anodized aluminum construction, stainless steel hardware, many thoughtful features that enhance normal operation… all these things set the B9Creator apart from the DIY 3D Printer herd. But when it comes to printing complex, detailed and fragile objects, this is where the B9Creator really shines bright!

DIY 3D Printers based upon the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) concept simply can not match the higher resolution capability of the B9Creator.  We utilize a powerful Deformable Mirror Device (DMD) projector to shine a 1024 x 768 pixel image onto a layer of photo-initiated polymer resin.  The result is a quick solid cure of the entire layer in one operation.  The layer thickness is typically 100 microns but your model can be sliced even thinner if you need even higher resolution.  Note that 100 microns is .1 mm or about 0.004″

  1. They wouldn’t look out of place on the Valley Forge in Silent Running 🙂

  2. I have been studying 3d printers for a long time these are by far the best looking of the lot, modern and very well designed almost futuristic, Well done I hope you sell loads.
