Projector Recommendation

Postby gibeaug » Mon Dec 05, 2016 8:44 pm

Getting back into my 3D printing phase after a 24 month hiatus. Have a DropLit V1 (purchased 2 years ago) that I built - but never purchased a projector. Any thoughts as to the current recommendations of projectors that would fit the V1? The information here is over 12 months old.

TIA

The Acer P1283 or the P1500 are the ones that I believe are recommended, but just about any of the small Acer's can be modded to work. I've got a BD380, I believe. It only required removing the zoom and focus stop screws so that you could manually make it fit the build area and focus on my LittleRP, which is very similar in size.

Yes,. I have a V1 Droplit and a P1283. There is more info on the P1283 modifications (remove UV filter, etc). I'd actually like to sell my Droplit and projector...

Yep, that's the one. Bad memory.
