Re: [diy_3d_printing_and_fabrication] Re: LCD Based Printer; Photopolymer Samples
- Ha, yes agreed! As long as there is enough wattage through the LCD to promote "normal" cure times it should be pretty speedy. I think we'll be able to get an idea of what to expect once Nick does more testing with his rig... once I can finish up some proper software for him to test with! Hopefully very soon!

I agree it should be faster but it sounded like he knew of something out there already so was curious. Its only 10-15 seconds if you can get the light throughput but as glaciers are faster than FDM so it would have to be bad to not be faster :)Graham

0.15mm for some large parts is fine. LCD is much faster than FDM printing and it's a great fit for printing architectural models. They typically like large parts and don't need the resolution.LCD is faster? I didn't know there were any other LCD based systems.Graham
