    well these are the last modifications I made to my morpheus:



    As ridiculous as it looks, I've have had to add tape on both sides of the door as the vat is now being pushed out every time the bar tilts!! :O

    since the plate is not perfectly leveled with the vat due to issue with the arms and the bar TOW is working in, every time the bar moves up and the film adheres to the plate, the vat is pushed forward

    Updated SuperVat

    After playing around with the Super-vat idea.. I decided to attempt a hybrid to test out if the liner that I am working with will work the way I hope it will.
    So I am making my own Vat liner "holder" out of some angled recycled stainless steel corner covering.

    I measured the length of the sides of the liner and the holes used to mount it, then cut the sides and drilled the holes.

    Next step is bending the bar on the line to form and square the corners.

    I'll spot weld some braces to hold the shape.

    (Using my home-made spot-welder..)

    I'll take more pix once I get it all together!

    I'll still have to add the frame extension to make sure it locks in place, this is just to get the vat-liner to be directly over the LCD screen.

    @woale.. I am finally printing this! What software do you usually use to open files from thingverse into solidworks? Can you talk more about that flow process in terms of software..? We need to open your files and later convert them so that we can print them via nanoDLP.. I wonder if you can expand on that? Thanks!

    Hi @angrypanda and @woale: I wonder if you could help me with something that is happening with this file http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1520741 .. I have downloaded that file and I have uploaded it to my nanodlp but the screen that comes up is entirely in black (all the layers are in black).. When I downloaded the stl file with the Vat Holder from the NanoDLP the sliced layers are in black. I wonder if you encountered similar problem and what could be a solution? Thanks a lot!

    @Angrypanda did you finish your superVAT and printed with it?

    I'm following a similar path and ordered these two:







    Need to still do the horizontal bar and a way to create a frame to keep the vat on place hmmmm....
