On the way to improve the performance of my Monkeyprint DLP printer software I recently rewrote the code that hollows the model and generates the fill patterns. I think my method is pretty neat, so I thought I’d share it here. If you like an image processing approach to model hollowing, continue reading!
Monkeyprint: all new and shiny DLP printer software
Good things come to those who wait! After weeks of fiddling and coding my Monkeyprint DLP printer software has undergone a complete makeover and now comes along with improved user-friendliness and a bunch of new features…. Continue reading Monkeyprint: all new and shiny DLP printer software
Build log part 3: Resin printer electronics box
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
An all-in-one DLP 3d printer controller: Next steps
I have noticed that although the code is free, Monkeyprint is not yet in a state were it is really useful for anyone building a 3d DLP printer. In order to change this, I made plans for improving the software itself, but also sharing the hardware to provide an all-in-one DLP printer controller solution.

Monkeyprint — An open-source 3d print software
Monkey see, monkey print! In the previous post you saw an overview of the 3d DLP printer I contributed one or two bits to. Now, I’d like to share what exactly these bits were: An open-source print software that is easy to use (at least I hope so) and does the pre-processing and print control for DLP printers.
