I am a final year student from National University of Singapore (NUS). One
of my electives requires my team to come up with a theoretical compact RP
machine. my team had thought of using visible light to cure the resin for
safety reasons. LCD is an attractive option as it also involves lesser
moving parts. But DLP seems to have a better resolution.

1)Does anybody has any further information pertaining to this aspect?

2)Any forseen problems?

2)Any websites in this area?

SLP (by Denken) and E-DARTS (by Autostrade) seems to be the one of the more
compact RP machines in the market.

1)Does anyone knows more about the process involved as their websites
provide very little techical details?

2)So is the SLP or E-DARTS process patented yet? We do not wish to have
clashes with the SLP or E-DARTS process in our conceptual design.
