A major blind spot on resin 3D printing is lack of measurement tools for 3D manufacturers, resin producers and 3D printing enthusiasts. The new tool available to monitor both internal data and external sensors. It make it easy to correlate data from multiple sources.
Internal Data Sources
Currently possible to see realtime flow of data from current sources:
- Slicer data – Solid Area, Area Count, Largest Area
- Current layer information: Cure time, Speed and etc
It include many sensors that could be read such as:
- Resin Level
- Driver Amper
- Light Intensity
Currently common sensors and platforms already tested
- Serial Device Reading (Comma Separated)
Currently available features are:
- It read values both during idle and printing time. Many KPIs only available during printing.
- Both realtime monitoring and long term KPI visualization available
- Ability to reset collected data
- CSV export
How to Use it?
You can go to setup menu / tools page then click analytic dashboard button. Data collection will start only after visiting this page.
NanoDLP Display Engines
NanoDLP supports many way to display images, this post try to explain how each one works, what is the best and also give workaround for cases which one engine does not work well enough.
NanoDLP Folder Structure
Knowing NanoDLP folder structure could be useful for many cases. This post mostly focused on Raspberry Pi installation but also cover other OSes too.
NanoDLP shield is a low cost simple PCB board with stepper driver, which directly get wired to Raspberry Pi GPIO. Without any additional hardware you can control all elements of basic SLA/LCD 3D printer using this board.
