Understand the basics of how resin 3D printing works, and how you can affordably build your own DLP resin printer from old classroom equipment.

This session will include the basic concepts and chemistry that make resin printing technology possible. It will cover some of the resins and materials that are available, as well as the mechanisms and electronics that make these printers tick. Aside from talking about the DLP resin printers that are out in the wild, we'll also touch on some of the other technologies like LCD printers that use daylight resins, the viral CLIP printer technology, and laser galvanometer style printers.

This session will also touch on how you can design and build your own DLP resin style printer from a retired classroom projector. The design is 100% open source, and uses open hardware components and electronics. It is fully adjustable, and intended to accommodate a range of different projectors. This machine was also designed to use as many off the shelf parts as possible that don't require specialized skills or tools to build.
