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 Bottom  ( 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.

9-Repeat.

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!

…Ever have an Eurika! moment?

September 27th, 2011 5 comments

As the previous post shows my waste of time on  something trivial, this one is exhilarating! Eurika! I yell…

Cut a piece of 70mm sewer pipe that is 22mm high. Slid it over the lens assembly and fired up the projector…

 

In case you are wondering where I have gotten the Lee Filters from http://www.leefilters.com/lighting/contact/ and request a sample pack. The filters are fantastic for other uses!

WARNING! You should not look into the projected image – temporary or permanent blindness may occur.

Always consult and follow  your manufacturers user manual. If  you decide to disregard the manufacturers safety instructions…well, you are on your own. You have been warned. I take no responsibility nor am I liable for the stupidity of others!

I managed to get the image down to 30mm X 40mm WOOWWWW!

If you are not convinced look at the caliper…

You can see the Lee Filter information “(HT) * 027 MEDIUM RED” as to the wavelength the filter applies to.

If you are wondering how was I able to focus the image on such a small area, I had this little gem in my “Ebay” box. I remember buying one as a gift for someone, but cannot remember who. I was able to use it to photograph my fingerprints-see below:

 

I looked though the microscope and filter, and adjusted the focus until the little letters under the “DELL” logo are clear or focused, as far as my vision can tell.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU LOOK THROUGH THE MICROSCOPE AT THE IMAGE THE PROJECTOR CREATES WITHOUT PROTECTING YOUR EYES FIRST! This blog is for informational purposes only.

Hope you have a great build day too!
