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!
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
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
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.
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.
