DropLit V2

Post by artexmg »

Hey guys, my teenage son was given the task (by me!) to build a forgotten DropLit V2 Kit I had in the attic (yeah, retro time!) :lol:

So, everything is done, but the power source. I just couldn't find any guide on where to place it! I mean, the kit comes with the power sorce and fans and a single melamine side panel, but I have no clue where to place it within the machine. I couldn't find any picture showing the power source, actually, the few pics of a DropLit I was able to find online shows empty spaces and no power source.

I know this is an old thread, but, does any of you have an actual picture of a finalized DropLit 2? or, where to place the Power Source?

Thanks!!

Actually, my first question should be ... does anyone had built the V2? :-)

The power supply is external I think... isn't it? I haven't looked at a v2 in years...

Thanks, Geneb! I think it is external too, but what puzzles me is that 1) it comes with parts as if it were to be mounted (e.g. fans, side panel, switch, etc). and 2) there are no instructions on how to put everything together (e.g. make the connections and so).

Thanks again for chiming in (and so fast!)!

Here it is, as well the side panel and a bag with bolts, cables, fan, switch, and outlet. Like if it has to be mounted somewhere.

Ah, yep. That's an internal power supply. Were you aware of this: https://seemecnc.dozuki.com/c/Droplit_V2 ?

The manual(s) in the link provided are indeed the instructions we followed one by one, there is one section for carriage, another for Vat, Mirror Mount, and Frame.

We went through each one of them. There is nothing regarding the power supply...and I cannot find a single picture of a finished V2 :-)

Thanks again Geneb, you're always been a great help in the forum!

Mystery Solved!!

I was about to open a support ticket, so I went to see my order ... and turned out that, at the same time I ordered the DropLit V2, I bought a Power Supply upgrade to my Rostock V2!. I don't know why they put the power supply inside the box of the DropLit Kit, but well, now I know that I never upgraded my Rostock V2 (but I will now!)

This was an interesting case of bad memory, and illustrates my wife's point of view that there are too many machines at home ;-)

Thanks Geneb for your help!
