The mUVe 1 3D Printer, an open UV resin based 3D printer was successfully funded on indiegogo back in April. As estimated, the first Ultimate kit was shipped out on Jun.20. Last weekend the team has completed building and shipping all of the Ultimate kits. Meanwhile Dean Piper, the maker behind the mUVe 1 3D Printer project, has shared all of the source material on their website.

"People who have also been waiting to build the kit on their own should have everything they need now. The parts list is up to date and the part files are the latest versions. We will do our very best to keep those files up to date with changes that take place here." writes Piper on the site.

"I don't want to keep my project locked down like some of the other companies have decided to do, it's all about spreading knowledge for me. I love 3D printing and want to help further the field as much as I can. If this project goes well for me and my company then I will be moving on to the next." says Piper.

All of the source files can be found here so anyone can start building their own mUVe 1 3D Printer. For those who missed the chance ordering the kit on indiegogo, Piper said he would soon open the website up for pre-sales. So check out its status update on the muve3d's site.

M, I'm guessing that 100 Microns, 0.1mm and 0.00393701 inch are all the same thing.

"What is the accuracy, precision with what you can print stuff?" 100 Microns or .1mm or 0.00393701, as it says in the specs above.

sfsdf: I am not associated with the project, but it looks like your question may be answered in the features list above. "Laser Iris Diaphragm allows hugely scalable resolution, .1mm standard supported resolution"
