Resin-based 3D Printer kit

Resin-based 3D Printer kit

I have been dreaming about having a 3D Printer at home for many years, but the ones with good quality are not affordable and the low costs just deliver poor quality. Sounds crazy but I decided to build a high resolution 3D Printer by myself at home (people actually said that I was crazy and this was impossible). The funny thing I never saw this type of machines in real life, and still haven’t seen one besides the one I built.

Now that I succeed building the first prototype, the target is to bring this low cost 3D Printer to every home, so we are developing the first affordable one with high resolution. I hope you enjoy our blog, follow us and you can have this printer in your home soon.

Wow, this a 3D printer we did not know about!

  1. Yeah but it’s all closed and stuff !
    Talk about reprap’s recent spinoff to do the same : lemoncurry.
    IRC channel #lemoncurry @freenode, wiki is : https://code.google.com/p/lemoncurry/wiki/main
    Also, first partial prints last week : http://www.flickr.com/photos/arthurwolf/sets/72157629689547231/

  2. It seems to me like it’s always an issue of cost of the resin. The machine is actually fairly straight forward to build (it’s just a CNC with extra bits to do the light stuff, right). The magic is all in the resin which will harden when exposed to light and, from what I gather, is exorbitantly expensive.

    When we see the polymer come down in price we’re going to see an explosion of high detail 3d printing.

    Does anyone know of a cheap source of any photopolymer that can be used for this stuff?

  3. The reprap resin printer project actually started thanks to a new source of resin : http://bucktownpolymers.com/polymer00.html
    About 40$/L, so much much less than previous alternatives.
    The guy that makes them even participates in the project.

  4. Mr. Veloso just released the potential pricepoints today on his blog. Looks like $4k for a full kit and $600 for a core kit with electronics, software, and schematics. If you can get the results he shows in his videos on a consistent basis then it’s totally worth the cost…buuuut still out of my price range. The LemonCurry project looks very similar, but it’s open-source format makes it infinitely more appealing!

  5. “$600 for a core kit with electronics, software, and schematics” actually means “$600 for the electronis” when the rest is quite obvious.
    Current lemoncurry price estimate is around $500 for a fully modded ( with UV led and all ) DLP projector, with possibility to cost much less by DIY, and <$600 for the rest of the kit ( electronics, and the actual machine ).

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
