Tilt doesn't work

Hey guys, after building my own SLA Printer, everything works fine except the tilt function. The z-axis works fine, and the x-axis, which is used for the tilt doesn't. You can here some noise from the stepper but nothing moves. I tested my Ramps and the stepperdriver with RepetierHost and everything...

Re: Tilt&slide

Sorry, maybe it's a very stupid question, but doesn't anybody use a high torque rc Servo?

You can get cheap ones with a torque up to 40kg/cm an more. It's very easy to control servos, they are very strong, their accuracy should be sufficient. Also there is no need for a second stepper driver.

Re: Pico-Projector Experiments - part 2

First of all, thanks to you for your very nice documentation! You've mentioned that you've got problems to collimate the emitted light. Isn't it possible to set fibre optics in front of the led with a diameter of 4mm? Or maybe you can use an optical lens with a diameter of 10mm and a focus of maybe ...

Re: Whats needed for a DLP Printer

Hey guys, when start planning my dlp printer, i made a list of NEEDED parts. What do you think about it? - DLP projector (should be modified) - a vat for resin (the projected area should be Borosilikatglas ( for example: Borofloat 1200x600x3mm around 28€ per pice) or quartz glass) - Z-Axis for lift ...
