Whoa that's super interesting. It seems a very similar technology to DLP printing, which also uses light from a projector to harden resin, but it only does one layer at a time.

Being able to do the whole object at once is very cool! I kind of have doubts about it though, I do wonder if it works well. Also because of the fact it's printing the whole thing at once, that makes void/empty spaces in the interior of the object impossible. But with layer-by-layer printing this is easy. So I guess that's a minor setback with it. But overall this looks very promising and cool!

Seems like you could also use it to make layered or composite objects, perhaps with different sorts of properties for each layer.

Has anyone seen SG-1?! Replicators?! We're on a dangerous path! (only half joking)
