Improve your printing speeds without bricking your projector. Follow this step by step guide to make it happen flawlessly. In this video I break open my DLP projector to remove the color wheel. For some or even most this is probably a daunting task. I'll do my best to make it straight forward and simple so anyone can do it on any projector.

Since DLP 3D Printers are only concerned with black and white projections, the color wheel is an unnecessary part that creates a light filter and reduces the overall lumens output of your DLP projector. Removing this part increases the light intensity and thereby decreasing your resin curing times. Most printers reduce their resin cure times by 10% by removing the color wheel.

A DLP Projector uses two key components to refine the light created from the halogen lamp to make the final projected image. The first is the DMD (Digital Micromirror Device) which directs the light towards or away from the output lens and the second is the color wheel which generates the color for the outputted image.




A color wheel is broken into multiple sections. The non-clear quadrants function as light filters to create different colors. By removing the color wheel we'll get back the light intensity lost by passing the light through the colored quadrants.

If you're new and don't know how a DLP/SLA 3D printer works then check out my video where I give a thorough walkthrough of my Draken DLP 3D Printer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ21g...
