Project Summary Project Information

The aim of this project is to design and fabricate a projected image photopolymer curing R&D platform. The system will use a Texas Instruments digital light projector (DLP) development system to project black and white ultraviolet (UV) light images onto a film of UV curable photopolymer in order to selectively cure/harden the polymer. Students will therefore design and construct a liquid resin spreading system, an optics system capable of transmitting and focusing a suitably powered UV light source, and the software needed to slice a 3D CAD model into the individual black and white images to be cured.
