Maker demonstrates that smartphone resin 3D printers, like the ONO, can actually work

As seen in the video, this maker uses uses a 5” 800×480 LCD screen along with a 10W led projector, x-control motors, a Rapsberry Pi based controller board and daylight resins to drive his experimental 3D printer.

And while the print bed is small (limited in theory to the size of the screen in the x/y), the 50 micron print resolution is impressive for an early prototype. Also, considering the LCD device (and controller) are realistically the most expensive components, it’s perfectly possible you would be able to squeeze it all into the $99 package that is advertised by the highly anticipated ONO 3D printer.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
