siligel vat bottom... What is it?

Yesterday I was at a jewerly (silver/gold) show room. There were a different kind of commercial resin-base 3D printer, the most of them were bottom-up style. One of the use a bottom vat made of Siligel you can find the description of the 3d printer at this link http://lnx.robotfactory.it/en/3dl-prin...

Re: 350x200 mm Build Platform, UV laser or DLP Projector?

I haven't a laser printer, but I think that with a laser+galvo you can obtain a discrete print speed. Some time ago I have seen in action a professional/commercial galvo-laser printer (made from digital wax), with a lager build area (I think about 250mmx250mm), and it was pretty fast. Maybe not like...

Thank very much for all the images and the info ;)

Yeah I think I'll still continue to use salt water too.
The results are better.
