XMaker software on diy DLP?

Postby Leinad78 » Mon Feb 15, 2016 7:58 am

Hello guys,

i just found the XMaker software for the M-One which is free and uses the ATMega2560. Unfortunally they don´t use Ramps, they developed their own hardware. Fortunally they seem to be using the same A4899 drivers like most of us use.

Does anyone tried using this software? It has a very nice hollow option which works extremely good

I checked their software out as well and thought the hollow and support structure was pretty good, only to find out that they use a proprietary model format on export. In place of it I've been using Meshmixer for hollowing and PrintStudio for orientation and support structure.

Print studio is decent software, but the Ember printer dimensions are about 15% smaller than my actual printer, so it's only useful for my table top miniatures.


on a side note, i think the pre-form software has the best support structure, I hope creation workshop can mimic something similar in the future.
