I intended to modify this projector for 3D printing. I read through all of the documentation on the product page and ordered from the Digi-Key supplier, as linked on the TI site. When following documentation, I expected to be replacing with this LED package. When I took it apart though, I found that I received an older model with this LED. I only found this was an older model after contacting tech support. There was no indication on the TI website, supplier website, or physical package that there was an older model that had a different LED. The manufacturer of the older LED does not have a UV model. Is there any way to swap the old blue LED with UV on this older model?
I should point out, the "newer" model documentation is from 2014. So that must mean that at the very least, the product I received is 6 years old and I didn't even know that there WAS an older model. I can't return it because I took it apart.
