Tons of people are telling me that they want to build a projector and the no.1 reason they told me why they are afraid to build is they don't have knowledge in electronics.

Most experience builders had probably realized already that the basic requirements to successfully build a projector are
1. Basic electronics
2. carpentry skills
3. basic tools + electric drill +jigsaw
4. tons of patience. know how to follow directions
5. careful planning and organization


One would be builder asked me If I can make a "Dummies Guide".
I thought about this, and decided, why not?

In order to help address the issues above
1. No soldering should be done. All electronics parts must have terminals. All plug and play.
2. Standardize the parts. Make a standard box for all lcd sizes and projection lens sizes
3. Standardize the frames and holders.
4. Sell LCD installed in the frame/holders for local buyers only. Knock down parts for International buyers
5. Sell light source as module( heastsink+led+condenser lens+led protector+thermometer)

And the most challenging task for me is to learn to make a video on how to put these parts together using 3D models of parts. ( Can anyone recommend a software?)

I hope that with these, the newbie builders need to have is a screwdriver, a pencil and ruler/square.
This is a lot of job for me, but I hope will make alot of newbie builders with limited capability and resources happy.

Thatz gonna be a big task Hertz, yes a Video can be much helpful than tons of internet theory content. And you can make Video with Google Sketchup itself.

Thanks Satish!

here is what I learned after 2 nights. I am ready to animate all the parts but I have to make models of all components first.

Take a finished projector.......make a video of its dis-assembly......record it "in reverse" as an assembly. Add pauses, subtitles as needed.
