A prototype model of the holographic 3D printer (holoprinter) is presented and the experimental results are reported. The holoprinter is developed for the purpose of a peripheral device to produce 3D image hard copies of computerized data. By the prototype, the practical problems such as the requirements for the vibration isolation and the time for printing, are investigated. Through the experiment, we demonstrated that 3D images of high diffraction- efficiency can be recorded without air-floated optical bench. In addition, a new optical system for high-speed printing is proposed. Using an array of lenslet, several elementary holograms are exposed in parallel, resulting in the reduction of total printing time.
