Low cost, high res solar spectrum viewer??

Was chatting with Jack recently about solar outreach and the detail that can be seen in the solar spectrum with the right kit. I was debating designing and 3D printing a simple littrow design, but am not sure the specs of the components I need to get a decent high res view. I see that that several people are already active in 3D printed spectroscopic kit, would be good to see how easy to would be to knock up a decent, cheap system for showing the public the solar spectrum in detail.
