You can install nanoDLP on Raspbery Pi, Windows or Linux Desktop.

Using Raspberry Pi version strongly adviced. As it contains much more features.
Windows / Linux versions are easier to install and try as they are portable.

Terms of Use

THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. Please, refer to the bundled license file for more details.
If you are an end user:
  • You can use nanoDLP free of charge.
  • You can customize the program and its resources.
If you are a manufacturer:
  • You can distribute nanoDLP with your printer free of charge.
  • You can customize the static resources of the program.
  • If you need us to add your customization to nanodlp or host it, paid license is required.

Installing nanoDLP on Raspberry Pi.

  • nanoDLP is only compatible with Raspberry Pi 2 and 3
  • You need microSD card 2GB or larger and a card reader

Simple Installating

  1. Download nanoDLP SD card image file and extract it.
  2. To copy nanodlp SD image file, you need a computer with card reader.
  3. Based on your computer's operating system follow one of these guides for Windows, Mac OS, Linux.
  4. Put microSD card into Raspberry Pi and connect it to power source.
  5. To find out your Raspberry Pi's IP address open your computer's network area.
  6. Or visit online dashboard to see online nanoDLP printers in your network
  7. (Optional) It will be easier if you make your Raspberry Pi IP address static through your router or through terminal.
  8. (Optional) To use whole SD card disk space you need to connect to Raspberry Pi and run "sudo raspi-config" command.
  9. (Optional) To install latest version or beta version you need to do expert installation below or use program's auto update function.

Advanced Installation

  • Install Raspbian Lite on SD card. (Probably works with other Linux distributions too)
  • Run the below command on Raspberry Pi Terminal.
  • (wget https://www.nanodlp.com/nanodlp.tar.gz -O - | tar -C /home/pi -xz);cd /home/pi/printer;sudo ./setup.sh
  • To find out your Raspberry Pi's IP address open your computer's network area.
  • Or visit online dashboard to see online nanoDLP printers in your network
  • Detailed installation guide for Muve3D is also could be useful.

Windows / Linux Desktop Versions

Windows and Linux versions are experimental.
Windows Users:
Linux Users:
  • Download Linux 64bit version.
  • Extract ZIP file.
  • The program is fully portable. You only need to run binary file.
  • Start using nanodlp by opening http://127.0.0.1:8080 link on your favorite.
  • Do you need help? Visit our forum.

Hardware and Wirings

You can use nanoDLP in two totally different ways, 3rd party boards and direct control.

RAMPS Board

RAMPS board are Arduino based 3D printers control board.
  • Use patched version of Marlin or GRBL firmwares.
  • Connect Raspberry (nanoDLP) and Arduino using USB cable.
  • Checkout your RAMPS guide for wiring
  • Using RAMPS board has following advantages
    • Faster movement speed
    • Even steps
Some devices such as Trinamics provide same advantages as RAMPS board but making them works with nanoDLP require more effort.

Direct Control

You would not need any external hardware, everything being controlled by Raspberry/nanoDLP.
  • For the hardware wiring, we suggest following hardware schematic and pcb design.
  • To print pcb board you can use source files.
  • To drive stepper motor you need stepper motor driver.
  • Using direct control has following advantages and disadvantages
    • Less hardware, higher reliablity
    • Some of the features are designed for direct control
    • Jitter and lower movement speed

STL/SLC/SVG to PNG Program

You can convert your SLC files to png files using software below to try nanoDLP internal anti-aliasing.

  • STL/SLC/SVG2PNG use anti-aliasing on output to increase print quality
  • Support SLC files without size limit, requiring much less memory than similar programs
  • STL/SLC/SVG2PNG utilize all of your CPU cores except one
  • You can download STL/SLC/SVG2PNG for 64bit Linux and Windows
