P12552: Projected Image Prototype


Project Summary Project Information

The aim of this project is to continue efforts to produce a projected image 3D printer. The system will use an ordinary overhead projector to project black and white images onto a film of UV curable photopolymer in order to selectively cure/harden the polymer. Students will pick up where last year’s group left off. They will (a) design a movable platform upon which the 3D part is printed; (b) determine the best method of adjusting the image size and focus; (c) create a procedure for generating the sequence of black and white images; (d) research different photopolymers that are available; and (e) design and construct an optics system capable of transmitting light that will cure the selected photopolymer.
