When i begun working on the Ilios HD Kit i knew that the first model i was going to build with it had to be something special. There are tons of generic models out there which initially were made for simple extrusion type 3D printers and their resolution was quite low to begin with.
A custom model was needed, which was tailored for the Ilios Kit and would demonstrate its capabilities to the max. Simple solid objects are easily recreated since minimal supports are required and the model does not go through any stress while it is being built. I needed something that would be complex not only in terms of resolution, but in its shape as well, having twists and turns, which could make any software with automates supports inadequate.
Designing something creative isn't easy and definitely requires skill and talent. As a 3D designer i browse through most known channels where news about latest software and model innovations are posted. One of those posts cough my attention, which demonstrated the use of holographic 3D model presentations in a unique way and was called Rabbit Holes.
Based on the successful campaign on IndieGoGo to raise funds for an HD SLA 3D printer i shall be describing the build process of the first unit in this blog so that others can see it, comment on it and perhaps even learn something from it. Since the campaign ended i immediately begun preparing all the part lists to order and finalized as well as tweaked the design for a better look and performance.
As time goes by i shall be adding my progress to this blog for everyone to see and describe what i am doing in detail. Feel free to discuss the build in the Forum or comment on the blog it self. This should be quite enjoyable for me and a good break from OSRC development for a while so sit back and enjoy the build with me.
If you want to find out how the 3D printer...
Due to the modular nature of OSRC, the possibilities while combining different modules, become endless. Each module has its purpose and can add features related to many different fields. Sometimes the operator may need additional switches, other times additional data may be required. If just flying for pleasure, an advanced computing unit with a color display may not be needed, while flying with an FPV setup, the additional control of a camera or Real-Time video preview can be achieved. You may already have a set of traditional receiver units which are integrated into your model and just need a reliable control unit to go with it, adding all the great advantages that OSRC can offer. In all cases, the user can change one module for another, maintaining the ability to cover all possible scenarios and at the same time build a rich collection of hardware upgrades for the OSRC control system....
