A big factor that kept people from using my Monkeyprint DLP printer software was the necessity to build the custom Monkeyprint electronics board that drives the actuators. To make Monkeyprint DLP more attractive for DLP printer builders I have made a big leap forward: Monkeyprint DLP is now able to send G-code. Finally!

Great electronics need great casings, so I set out to make a first electronics box prototype for my 3d resin printer. Not only is it 3d printed, but in addition to the Monkeyprint electronics board it contains a Raspberry Pi 2. You see where this is going, don’t you… Continue reading Build log part 3: Resin printer electronics box
The heart jumps and sweaty fingers are crossed as the main power switch is flicked on for the first time. Surprisingly, no smoke rises and the absence of sizzling noises made by frying components announces my new 3d DLP printer controller boards first successful test run. Well, at least I didn’t short circuit anything yet.
