TIDA-00293

Best-in-class Combination Stereolithography 3D Printer Development Using DLP® Technology

TIDA-00293

Design files

Overview

This DLP® 3D printer reference design employs our DLP 3D structured light software sevelopment kit (SDK) and enables you to build best-in-class resolution 3D objects. The highly-differentiated DLP technology uses stereo-lithography technique popular in high-accuracy and high-speed 3D printing. This reference design features the DLP LightCrafter™ 4500 evaluation module (EVM), showcasing the DLP 0.45” WXGA chipset to accurately expose object layers. The design also uses our low-power MSP430 embedded processor to synchronize layer exposure with motor control for precise incremental 3D builds.

Features
  • Integrated motor drive routine
  • Adaptive GUI for customizing layer sequences
  • Modular system design to port to other DLP chipsets
