Michael Joyce’s B9Creator is a high resolution 3D printer capable of generating complex and detailed models. The device, made from anodized aluminum and stainless steel, utilizes a powerful Digital Light Processing (DLP) projector to shine a 1024 x 768 pixel image onto a layer of photo-initiated polymer resin, resulting in a quick solid cure of the entire layer in one operation.

The 3D printer is able to generate 12-20 mm of material per hour and the resin used costs just 10 cents per gram. A detailed model of the Eiffel Tower printed using the machine weighed about 12 grams so the material cost to print it was only around $1.20.

The B9Creator is currently doing really well on Kickstarter, where backers have pledged nearly $175,000 with 19 days left until the funding deadline. You can receive a B9Creator 3D-printing kit with a pledge of $2,375 or more and it will be shipped no later than August 31st.
