John Cassidy has long wanted to get his equipment away from the junk area next to the CNC room, is it possible that we could use this space instead of the junk space to do some production, clearing and curing of resin prints?

Since resin printers are cheap, we would do well to make such a corner now rather than later, @ajlennon has expressed interest in buying one, I'd be interested in making/pledging to one also. Now that we have one, we know it doesn't stink much at all.

I pledge £50 towards this, anybody else joining me?

Is this a good one then? Does DoES want a nano-bot invasion of addititive (sic?) manufacturing? :)

@ajlennon It's the cheapest on the market, but it performs basically the same. The shell is just cheap plastic, and there's no preview screen, you load the SD on and the file comes right off, that's it.

With that limitation, it'd be interesting to see if we could hack the hell out of it and have it support Octoprint-like stuff for DLPs. https://www.nanodlp.com/

The processing requirements for DLP printing are immensely lowered since it's 2d projection, so much so that the slicing is fast even on a pi. You upload an STL to nanodlp, in a browser, and all the slicing takes place on the pi, which is then displayed to you via a browser.

It's also worth noting that we could probably do better making our own, for the same price (£219), however, this thing would be fun to hack!

What's the cheapest one out there that supports NanoDLP without having the hell hacked out of it?

We need some Resin WormBerts!

@ajlennon Those things don't go together. We can make our own and use nanoDLP though. Cheapest I can find is $2499

Why don't they go together? A DLP software tool and a DLP printer?

@ajlennon No, "cheap" and "NanoDLP" :)
