Re: MonoWare Lite - Slicing and control software for resin printers

Hello Dan,

With CW and Marlin, how do you know if the motor completes travel? I've seen NanoDLP users are also using patched Marlin to get a notification when a motor runs and stops. At least Grbl has a realtime feedback for this, but could not find the same with Marlin.

Re: MonoWare Lite - Slicing and control software for resin printers

I'll look into whether I can use Marlin for 3 axis control with MonoWare. I will post here for any update.
Thanks!

Re: MonoWare Lite - Slicing and control software for resin printers

How is the marlin firmware supported version coming along? Hello Dan, I've implemented additional axis using my own firmware, but need more time to make it with Marlin. I'm not an expert on G-code and Marlin implementation, so need to study the firmware first. How do you control your system? Are yo...

Re: Mirror choice for DLP Printer

First surface mirror is standard for scientific application unless you intentionally need to configure the optical path to have both the first and second surface reflections. If you use normal (second surface mirror) without anti-reflection coating on the first(front) surface, you'll lose the light ...

Re: MonoWare Lite - Slicing and control software for resin printers

Hello Dan, I'm working on a new product now, so it will take some time to update the software for supporting Marlin. Will find a time to do it soon. Regarding extra axis, I will use couple of more motors for my products, so I will try to support those additional motions through Grbl or Marlin. Thanks!

Re: IMMISCIBLE Liquid layer between Resin and VAT window IDEA

I'm not a patent lawyer, but guess their application should be declined if the patent idea is identical to yours and your posting to general public is earlier than your posting here. It's just an application, but USPTO might approve almost all applications unless there is a clear reason to reject. I...

Re: MonoWare Lite - Slicing and control software for resin printers

I've quickly scanned the G-codes of Marlin, but there seems no real-time feedback about stepper position. I've used this scheme to track the current position of steppers with my own firmware or Grbl. I may need to study a little more so that support for Marlin may take some time. Regarding time limi...

Re: MonoWare Lite - Slicing and control software for resin printers

That's because the feedback message/commands are different between Grbl and Marlin. If you can upload Grbl instead of Marlin, you can check if this is correct or other things make them not working. I may implement the ability of custom code injection between each layer like other control softwares. ...

Re: MonoWare Lite - Slicing and control software for resin printers

I've not studied G-codes of Marlin, but basically its commands should be similar to Grbl except some feedback messages from firmware. Do you want to control other than z-axis?
