My latest is a 1/12 MFH MP4-4 late version K429 kit from my good friends at Hobbyeasy.
This is a really cool kit. I am very happy with the Hobbyeasy service.

@indy1977tx: nice one! What is the printing size of that printer? Saw them on Facebook as they announced it. But the price is awesome compared to the Elegoo Jupiter Kickstarter campaign.

The two are not really comparable I'd say.
The Jupiter gets better resolution in a large scale printer, and the Ultra has a different technology altogether to improve printing resolution for now on a small printing volume.
If the Ultra delivers as promised that looks like a game changer. For now it seems compromises are necessary in hardware choices for the machine to offset the cost of the DLP unit. Unfortunately I don't have a space to use a smelly printer for now, but it seems the wait will be sweetened by great improvements of the machines :-)

From their Kickstarter materials
DLP printers direct light with such high precision, that even with a lower specified resolution of 720p, the results are visibly better than those coming out of a 4K printer. Because LCD printers stretch pixels the larger the screen, even higher resolution LCD printers don't come close to to the life-like result of prints made on the Photon Ultra.

I bought it believing it would be the highest detail available right now in consumer SLA printers. I tend to over draw my parts in 3D so I appreciate printers that capture more of it :lol:

Jaykay, I am thinking about putting in my outside storage room to keep fumes, etc away from the family, which already has respiratory issues. Maybe on a car to take outside when pulling prints off machine, cleaning, and processing.

Yes, so far I'm also mainly looking for resolution as I tend to do small parts that are all about detail.
Luckily I have a friend with a pretty good printer that will do them for me, but I'd obviously like to have my own.
I just don't have a space in our flat to keep a smelly machine running for hours. My hobby room doubles as my home office and is next to the living room, so painting with a vent outside is already pushing it...
