3D Printer DLP Printing with UV resin…

What can I say? The title pretty much gave it away…

It’s an early Christmas Present…

Questions will be partially answered after 27th and fully after New Years!

3DLPrint X and Z Test

November 21st, 2011 No comments

The title does not give it all away, but the following does! :

I’m running the X and Z without limit and home switches, but have been around enough to be confident in my abilities. Your mileage may vary. If you do not know how to operate CNC machines safely , I suggest you get someone who does, to do it. If you do not know how to be safe around electricity, get someone who does, to do it.


The cycle is:

1-Go to BottomĀ  ( X -5 )

2-Go to TOP ( Z zero )

3-Go to work coordinates of Z zero – 10.

4-Slowly move to Z zero ( the last 10mm )

5-Slowly raise to X zero.

6- Display slide and display black screen

7-Go to X -5 then Z- (10 times the slice thickness )

8-Go to Z zero and then X to zero.


The first 10 slides are for the Base of the object to be printed. The rest are the object itself + supports ( if any ).


I’m sure it will create a stir!

Lens Assembly Spacer Again!

October 6th, 2011 1 comment

After some extensive search, I found some M2.5 standoffs. I bought 15mm, 20mm and 25mm. I used the 15mm long ones.

I used the original bolts on top to hold the lens assembly to housing securely. I left the ring on the lens and slid it down so it is blocking any light passing though the gap.


The results speak for themselves:

Perfectly square and stable image. It is not moving or shaking every time I bump the table.

That last one is of the focused projector.
