Henry Locke, Maker extraordinaire and creator of Flex Vat 3D printer components, will be at SouthWorks to demo his SLA printers and talk about the technology and uses. SLA printing uses a vat of light sensitive resin cured by a video projector to create amazingly detailed forms- think Terminator with the alien rising out of the vat of goop!
Henry will share his vast Maker expertise and show us how to inexpensively build our own using an old video projector and other miscellaneous parts. At a later date, we’ll do just that in a group build of one for SouthWorks!
