It was bound to happen, SLA for everyone. RobHopeless over at Instructables.com has recently posted a quite complete description of a DIY stereolithography (SLA) system. SLA was one of the first systems commercially available to early makers. SLA is part of a group of technologies often called “rapid prototyping” and recently being called Additive Manufacturing or Additive Fabrication.
“I have wanted a 3D Printer for a while now and there are some very reasonably priced kits available like the Makerbot, Ultimaker and the RepRap project. I could have just bought a kit and started printing things but at the time I had not seen great resolution or print quality from those. I started looking around at the other 3D printing technologies and found SLA made some amazing quality prints, so I decided to try making my own. Since I started this a while back those projects have come a long way and they can make some beautiful prints now. There are also people working on a UV resin and DLP projector 3D printer which is showing promise.”
