Wow, dizingof. You're right. Looks like the resin cost is pretty high, but that is definitely high detail. It's interesting that the item is "pulled" out of the liquid rather than "built" up from the ground. I'll be watching this as well.

Yeah, it has great resolution, I believe it is another form of UV cured resin, there are commercial versions available, and there is very little waste as the liquid remains.. nice one to watch.

And eh... can we now start a project on kickstarter from outside of the US?

Not sure,

If you search via location there seems to be more from around the world.

You can't open a project on Kickstarter without at least one of the project owners being a US resident (they require a social security number).
The "location" just means that the team/person is located somewhere, but US residency is a must, unfortunately.

Thanks for the info,

That is a shame

We do however have THOUSANDS of USA based Shapeways community members.

Luckly other sites see the benefits of figuring how to do business beyond borders, for example http://www.ulule.com/ .
