I'm the not-so-proud owner of an ibox Nano, a printer I can politely refer to as a low-resolution, self-destructing piece of junk. However, the basic idea of how the printer works is sound, and it's based on a raspberry pi board so I should theoretically be able to replace the software.
The nano has a 400mmx200mm 128x64 pixel resolution monochrome LCD screen which masks bank of UV LEDs, and the onboard software converts 1920x1080 SVG sliced image into a 128x64 pixel PNG. In theory, a different LCD sceen with a higher resolution should result in higher quality prints if the PNG conversion was scaled to match, but the python code that drives the ibox is compiled and I can't decompile it despite my best efforts. I'm wondering if anybody who's got any experience with the ibox thinks this might be possible, or could point me at alternative control software?
Here is the place to discuss software and related tools for Slice generation, machine control, & etc...
