The Horde At has long been a source of great and interesting models, for both show and table-top gaming. From Seej to his print of Dutchmogul’s Baby’s First Mace we’re always excited to see what’s coming next. Recently we spoke with Jim about future projects and we brought up our new DLP printer. We both thought it would be a great opportunity to show off the latest at, The Horde. It’s a new subscription-only mailing list and model share. Joining “The Horde” will not only keep you up to date with newsletters of their latest projects, but it will also get you exclusive models that you can’t get anywhere else! They won’t be made public.

100µm Test Prints, More Coming Tomorrow

We’ve been running through as many test prints as we can. Unfortunately a decent number of them were requests and we were asked to keep them private by the model owners. However there are some that we can share. So for now we are looking at 100 micron prints, we are actively testing 80 micron and should have images of them soon. After that we will be testing 50 micron. Tomorrow we will have a special model to share, it too was at 100 micron. For now we have the 120 cell Hecatonicosachoron by George Hart, proper credits to Goophoba below.   -There was some overcure as you can see the overshoot on the small copy of the part. Adjusting the layer exposure timing should

All DLP Kits Now For Sale

We’ve finally opened up for sales of all of our new DLP kits, including the $2099 Full-HD model which was put up for sale just now. Detailed specifications are still a bit sparse but we’re working on getting everything released asap. Today we finally tested a Full-HD projector with good success, the better news is that we were able to go past 50 micron on the X/Y axis with the standard lenses! The Full-HD model is initially going to ship with a ViewSonic PJD7820HD Projector. Though we may be offering an Acer model as well. Please direct any questions to our message board.

First DLP Tests, Laser+DLP Printer, New Kits Coming Soon!

Last week we decided it was about time we bought a DLP projector. We’ve had probably 100 requests for a DLP based machine but hadn’t put much time into the technology due to costs and energy consumption. HD projectors frequently cost $1000 themselves and they usually consume 200-350W, which is over 10x the power demand of the current mUVe 1. We knew the demand was there though, and the costs had come down, so we decided to source the highest resolution DLP projector for as little money as possible.

Reservoir Cleanup

If you’re like us then your reservoir/s have seen some heavy use over the months and over that time they may seem to buildup with more and more resin crud. What we noticed is that the pigments in the resin are sticking to the glass over time and simple soap and water in the sink doesn’t seem to cut through it. Even using a paper tower and some pressure doesn’t always get the buildup off of the glass. Through some trial and error with different products we’ve found a good combination that can get your reservoirs squeaky clean once again.

Updated: Highly Improved Firmware in Alpha

Today is a very good day for mUVe 3D and the open-source community. We’ve been working with Tim Schmidt and the Lansing Makers Network on building laser control into the Marlin firmware. This is an addition that allows for the use of pulsed lasers in addition to the standard FFF elements. We are still in the testing stages and there are bugs to fix and features to add, but it has been running stable enough that we can now share it with you. With any luck we will be able to roll these changes into the standard Marlin firmware and we will no longer have to maintain a separate repository for the main running firmware, only our development branches. So please read about the additions below and get to testing and let us know what you think the Google Group.

Community Created Modified Iris Mount

Today we are pleased to share our first community contributed re-design to a 3D printed part. Keith was nice enough to share his modified iris mount on our forums and definitely deserves a pat on the back for his much improved design. The new iris mount has a tensioned spring holding the iris adjustment lever as well as a set screw. This should effectively eliminate any play, and therefore changes to the laser point size during printing.

Universal Software/Updated Documentation

New Items in the Store! New to the store this week are 150mW and 50mW lasers, coming next week is QSil 216 dispensed into individual use bottles. Mixing and using Silicone Elastomer kits for reservoir coatings will be so much easier! Clarity of QSil 216 is much higher than FEP, but it is more expensive and doesn’t last as long. Thankfully the price is easily ignored when you see how the exceptional non-stick surface it creates is and see how easy it is to apply! Software and Documentation It has again been a busy few weeks for us here at mUVe 3D. There is always a ton on the horizon and always something new and exciting coming up. Today we are pleased to share some
