Matt built a new printer!
After taking apart two digital screen projectors, the new 3D printer is complete!
Instead of using conduction to melt plastic, this printer uses UV, ultra violet light, that hardens a liquid plastic. This is the same UV light in the sun that damages our skin.
The orange-yellow cover protects our body from UV light.
The printer is lighter and smaller then our other printer. It will be easier to transport to events. It also prints finer detail than the previous printer.
Do you recognize the dodecahedron shapes in the printer?
Matt will take these plastic pieces, and cast them himself!
