DIY 3D DLP Printer using UV/Vis sensitive resins.
Dear 3DLPrint blogger,I was trying to find a way to contact you with no luck so I will post a comment in hope you can reply on my address.I'm a small 3Dprinting business based in Prague - Czech republic. I currently own whole bunch of printers - 6 Solidscape Machines, 3 envisiontec Perfactory, 1 Meiko SLA, 1 SDI RapidToolMaker, 1 Z-corp powder printer.I'm also servicing Solidscape printers world-wide.I came across your blog few times in the past but today caught my eye the flash curing unit which you are building.I think we might cooperate on our inventions.I'm now building a post curing unit made of 5x 20W short spectum (405nm peak) high-power LEDs and I'm making it pulsating. I was thinking of using the mercury short-arc flash lamp made by Ushio but then I decided to go for short spectral emision device (but that might be a mistake).I'm also producing several spare parts for 3dprinters myself.And I'm also in the process of producing a basements for DLP 3dprinters. For separation I'm using a film produced in Japan and intended to be used as Ipad screen protection.

Hey there,I'm on my way to building a DLP resin printer myself, found a nice xenon powered 1024x768 DLP beamer, but i have a few questions that i couldn't find answered (maybe i didn't read well enough)What material did you end up using for the bottom of the resin container? I imagine it's either Lexan with no UV treatment or quartz glass.. How did you prevent the resin from curing on the bottom of that? Do you really need such a thick piece of glass to hold the project or is a metal plate good too? How much resin do you need to keep in the container?Do you run into many heat problems?Sorry for the flood of questions. I would like to start off correctly, as i've built multiple printers and other machines, I know how difficult it is to start "wrong" :)Thank you in advance!
