Asiga announced to release the world's first 3D Printer using UV LED System.
This 3D printer, light and tiny, weighs in at only 10.5 kg. It is named Pico, will be the first 3D printer using an an ultraviolet 385 nm LED light source which has up to 50,000 hours life time. What does that mean? It means the printer can consistantly perform without having to replace the light source. Consequently the cost of printing will be lower.
The Pico system has two build modes:
F-mode with 50 microns XY accuracy, build size 30 x 40 x 100 mm
UF-mode with 37.5 microns XY accuracy, build size 19 x 25.4 x 100mm
Users can select the Z layer thickness between 1 micron and 200 microns in 1 micron increments.
The Machine Size is 220 x 225 x 505 mm
According to TCT news, the price of the Pico 3D printer will be US$6990, comparing with major brands in the market with same performance this printer offers best value for money. The pico 3D printer will be used in industries including Dental, Jewellery, hearing, medical etc for high resolution parts.
Here are some Pico samples:

I am pritty much interested in your machine, but here are some points i want to confirm before purchase: what kind of meterial is used for 3D printing in asiga 3D printing machine, because here in our country some people have the misshaps that they bought the machines for 3D jewllary printing and later came to know that material used by machine is not castable for jewellary in pakistan. Is there any possibility that i get few physical sampels of 3D printing of my own jewellary designs which i coud send you as per your response. i am ready to pay the standerd price of jobs in advance as per your demand. in case of any mechanical and technical support needed or in case of any repair need here in pakistan what are the current available options.
