Re: DLP Printer
- Hi Junior,
How much does the resin costs?, and how much resin is used to print or flash the "viadinho :-)" I see in the pictures and what is it´s size?
What is the maximum size that can be printed?
Resin costs is what is keeping me away from it.I had a projector for a while to do a mod for a customer but it went back fast so i didn´t had enough time to mess with it.
Do you think we can print a A4 size part?

I cannot answer for Junior’s process but I have ordered several large and intricate pieces made with a similar process. They were about 250 x 160 x 12mm and looking very closely like a honey-comb. The wall thickness was only 0.4mm. They were very strong, easy to machine and very accurate. I was very impressed with the process and performance.
Pieces made with the power-inkjet process were delicate and could not be used because of lack of sufficient resolution.
Junior, can you comment on the strength of the object built with your
I have some people who may have seen a similar process and commented
that the parts are fragile. From your previous work where the parts needed to be
broken free of the build tray with a lot of force, I am thinking these parts are
actually pretty strong.
