Looking for additional 'off-the-shelf' parts to modify
I took some time to share the Hackaday Prize design goals of portability and accessibility with some of my creative friends and showed them what I had already made, and one of them showed me a pre-manufactured grocery bag that already had reflective mylar lining. These bags are commonly used to deliver groceries and available in so many sizes, and are very cheap and durable.
Once I finally got my hands on one of these grocery bags I came up with a plan to plumb it with UV LED strip lights like the original lamp I had built and create a pocket for the battery pack and some pockets for commonly used resin working tools.
Exploring a 3D printed option
While the bag idea is successful because it uses so many readily available parts, I also wanted to create something that could be more scalable to the needs of smaller precision parts. In future log posts I'll be sharing a design for a smaller 3d printed USB powered UV curing lamp using the same mylar backed air foil material as the original design had to show the versatility of these components.
