Lumenlab DIY Projector – 100inch Screen
Just a few examples: Lumenlab has a couple of calculators built just for figuring things out. These things come in a few flavors. I would have probablty already used up lujenlab commercial bulbes. We’ve geeked out, ordered a load of parts and scared our editors with the hardware tab.
The design is really quite simple. I am building one you can take a look on the website.
They shipped it five minutes after we ordered! You can grab a torrent of the plans here. Now that you’ve got the general idea of what we’re doing, it’s a good time to start crunching numbers to get a rough idea of what we’re looking at. If I am able to do this I can add that build to my website so you guys can see the difference in the basic kit and pro kit. The 20bux was well spent. Maybe you should sooner not compare DIY projects with commercial products.
We’ll give you our short version here. There is a Since you might be a little leery of dropping several hundred dollars on parts and gutting a nice display because people you don’t know on an online forum said so, we’re going to do it for you. They even improve on the lumen design by reducing space with a mirror; fractionally more difficult, but the box is alot less….
I had been watching the project for a while, but the premium membership really gives you a base of people that are a little more serious about making this thing work for a good price.
The 20 dollars for the forum access is WELL worth it. The light source is a Watt Metal Halide bulb. I am extremely satisfied with the results. Notify me of new comments via email. Remember that if you’re entering the width of the LCD diagonally, then the screen width is a diagonal as well. At the time, commercial projectors were still more expensive than the DIY option, but even now that they are so low in price, the DIY option is still valid because there is no getting around that fact that the bulb replacement cost of any commercial pj is just crazy.
Since we required their large lenses anyway, we ordered a set of matched Pro lenses. It would do p without a problem. Back to our diagram we see that the LCD is sandwiched between a pair of Fresnel lenses. We have to give props to the guys that are using the WXGA screen that’s usually only found in laptops to achieve native resolution.
Lumenlab took about a week to ship out their backorder, once they did, our stuff got here in record time.

It amazes me how some of you whine about 20 bucks for a premium forum. You can build your own projector for far less than we’re spending. But if your wallet is a little light from your last Engadget inspired shopping session you might dig our how-to latest project.
We run standard definition video through our video scalerbut there’s just not a good way to push a HD signal into the PC from an external tuner like our HD Tivo. Building your own projector isn’t a new idea.
There are plenty of ways to save money on this project, but we’re feeling sassy. Just like lumen labs: Lumenlab is a very nice design, and their forum is well worth the More importantly, our LCD accepts almost any input.

There was simply no question that the digital signal produced a much cleaner picture. I plan on getting the premium. Those that gripe projdctor stuff like that are the kind that if you give them free money they would fuss about not having somehting to carry it in. We should be able to hook up just about any HD gear we want to this display.
How-To: Build your own HD projector (Part 1)
Notify me of new posts via email. This beauty has a contrast ratio of Is there anywhere to pick up any of these parts in surplus or used? Another Fresnel focuses the light towards the projection lens.
To maximize the light aimed at the screen, we’ll add a reflector just behind the bulb. Does anyone know the source of the LCD panel he used?
It costs about lumehlab times as much as its little brother, but it’s the way to go if you’re using a large LCD like we are.
Given the cost, why build your own? Lumenlab recently made access to their forums free.
When I first started as a noob, the plans and the help available on their forums was great. From around the web.
This isn’t one to be missed. You can scrounge them up from surplus shops, but you’ll spend some time hunting them down and getting things right.
