Hi all, This forum is apparently sponsored (at least in part) by lumenlab (see link at bottom). Has anyone here actually built what they are. Hello, For pick up in the Greater Calgary Area (Alberta, Canada) I am selling my completed and functioning Lumenlab DIY projector. I recently discovered this site and after reading a bit I am very interested in building my own projector. If you check.

You can build your own projector for far less than we’re spending. However, too many cooling fans leaks out too much light. LumenArc holds a lot of projector surplus such as reflectors and ballasts which maybe useful to commercial projector owners and compact DIY projector builders.

The ‘Pro’ lens kit includes both Fresnel lenses and the projection lens. Lumenlab crops up here every month or two.

Lumenlabs used to be all about diy then they sold one for a while but now theyre into cnc kits. 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.

I am extremely satisfied with the results.
