HELLO SCOTT HOW ARE YOU GOING?
I LIKED A LOT OF YOUR DESIGN, TODAY I USE A 3D FDM AND WOULD LIKE TO BUILD A 3D SLA, BUT AS I AM BEGINNING AS A BUILDER, I HAVE SOME DOUBTS.
HOW CAN I DELETE RASPBERRY PI3 BY LEAVING ARDUIN ONLY AND INSTALLING NANODLP SOFTWARE ON PC?
HOW WILL THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS BE?

Hello. Thank you for your selfless dedication.
I want to make a 8.9LCD 2K printer based on your machine.
Can you share 3D drawings? STEP and so on.

                                                  Thank you

In the "Thing Details" you will see that I backed the project and it was my inspiration for this...

@boweeble - Have you completed assembly of this or did this fall into the pending project pile?

that's great job well done.
is there any diagram for electronic wiring and how setup them?

Sorry guys, been super busy with work, life, etc...I'll try to get some details to you within the next day or so...

That's awesome @boweeble! :D We all know how work/life gets in the way of these things. I've started adding to the documentation. It needs consolidation, but it should be easy to turn it into a proper manual. ;) I've just taken the config information for the touchscreen, and added it.

I'm looking for this as well. Currently building one of these. The only way I can think of getting the LED array to work (Because the current drivers are straight off the mains) is to add a second mains relay circuit and use the Pi's GPIO to trigger it via NanoDLP. I've tried contacting @Boweeble via Thingiverse, but sadly no response so far.

To get your started:

Here is a link to the Relay

I also updated the BOM Here.

Hopefully this is enough to get you guys going. I'll try to update more as I have time...Love seeing your progress so far @PioneeringStar!

Thanks @Boweeble! It's coming along slowly. I guessed that there was a missing relay!

Any updates on this?

Love your design. Have you got your machine running yet? Any YouTube video links?

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for your interest! I have not completed the build yet (as life has gotten in the way) but planning on getting back on this as soon as I can. I will definitely post videos!

What's youreally estimated cost for the build?

Right around 500USD is what I've spent so far and I believe I have everything to finish it up. I'll be posting more updates on here and the build log soon.

can u share your files from designspark then ill try to change all sizes to be used in EU

Everything is already in mm and the aluminum plate can be cut from 3mm stock (the thickness is not critical).

What is the material thicknesses of the machined parts?

.125" or 3.175mm - since I sourced the machined parts in the states, metric sized stock was not readily available to me.

did u build one yet ??

would love to se a video of it printing. just startet making one

Thanks for your interest! I've built a crude mock-up and took what I learned from experimenting and researching to come up with this design. I'm in the process of creating a build log with videos on the whole assembly process (successes and fails) and will post those as I get them created.

great :D
i expect u took out the back of the display to get the uv light trough it.
and if u arent already using it then nanodlp would be a great software for it.

Yes, I followed this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mf8mAcwtlbU and it was pretty easy to do. I am using nanodlp as the software behind the scenes and the touch screen as well.

nice. wich program do you use to design the printer. would be great if you can share the raw files so that i can make it possible to cnc cut som of the files with solidworks

I use DesignSpark Mechanical. The machined parts are in DXF format and available in the "Thing Files" section.

Is it possible to have some sort of 3d file. I want to try to design the machined parts to pla printed.
thank you

I added a zip file (Machined Parts.zip) to the files list which contains a 3D model of all machined parts.

This is very interesting. What resin can I use? Thank you

I've tested Makerjuice G+ but fun to do types should work. This setup is at 405nm so anything that hardens in that range should work.

I am more considering MakerJuice SF as I plan to use it to build custom parts for plastic model kits. By the description it looks like it is more suitable. Now, I just need to source this in Europe...

The hardest part will most likely be getting the aluminum plates but if you are in the UK, however Big Blue Saw does ship there...

I wonder if it is replaceable by wood?

If you used MDF it would probably work although obviously not as strong but probably won't be an issue. The holes around the developing LCD are threaded and holds the LCD up from the bottom tho so keep this in mind.

I'll try to get the holes and everything all marked with dimensions in a technical drawing for you so it should make things easier.

If you haven't done so already "Watch" this project so you'll know when I make updates.

Thanks for your interest, be sure and post your make!!
