Pics of my projector project...
This is basically a long list of photos of my projector, with a few comments for kicks.
The initial parts
The first stages of building the enclosure
Condenser Lense in mount (made from fan guards)
The Cut Fresnels and tempered glass
Custom mount I made for the Overhead light source with condenser mounted.
Power switch and plug mounted
The Back after painting the inside
Inside painted, stage mounted
Parts placed roughly in place
Pics of lcd (now junked)
Cold Mirror Mount
Let there be light (fully lit room, camera auto adjusted it that dark)
The box with doors on
Failed attempt to power lamp (kept popping bulb)
Fans mounted (2 top to suck air in, bottom to exhaust)
All buttoned up, just need to install front triplet and lcd.
The stage inside all lit up.
The projection, up cloes and overview.
And a final shot with my cat for scale.
Final thoughts. These were taken in daylight, so the image with an lcd shouls be very viewable in darkness. Though, by the quality of projection, you can see the issues with eyeballing everything. New enclosure to be built with proper measurements and real precision. This was a proof of concept.
