Unfortunate End

A project log for FDM to DLP 3D Printer

Taking an old Cartesian FDM printer and modifying with a DLP projector to turn it into a resin 3D printer.

During a move we stored all my supplies and parts. Things have been a bit chaotic but when I went to retrieve everything I found everything covered in mold and mildew.

We've been dealing with the recovery of many of our belongings and assessing the damage.

Most of the electronics are okay but all the wooden parts are beyond saving due to severe warping.

Unless I stumble across another 3D printer, preferably non-functional, for free I'm considering this project scrapped for the time being. I might revive this as a 2020 extrusion version in the future.

Thank you for your interest.
