Interested in using NanoDLP on Anycubic Photon

It appears that the Anycubic Photon is the same design as the Wanhao D7 version with LCD screen.  Is the hardware similar enough to run NanoDLP on?  Photon comes with slicing software but is very limited and wanted to have all the features nano provides.

Thanks!

I guess it should work with nanodlp but I am not familiar with photon technical details to provide information for the integration.

I can't post links but do a youtube search for "ANYCUBIC Photon: How to Change Mainboard?" and you'll see the board and drivers.

It is chitu board, I am not sure if it supports gcode. Still it is possible to control it through nanodlp, but somebody should put time and effort into it.

Re: Interested in using NanoDLP on Anycubic Photon

So if I wanted a more immediate way I could replace the board with a raspberry pi and a nanodlp shield.  The rest of the hardware would be fine?  Could it use the touchscreen that's already part of the unit?

I am not sure about LCD unit. But it is lots of effort to wire again. Probably it could be possible to control chitu board through nanodlp, but you need to know what kind of commands it accepts.

Re: Interested in using NanoDLP on Anycubic Photon

I did the conversion, and it was a lot of work.
A lot of work that payed off in the end. It works perfectly.
Had to replace the LCD with a nextion screen. Also used a ramps board with a TMC2208 driver and a dual linear Z upgrade.
My prints are so much better now due to the Z axis and the use of AA and pixel dimming.

Great work. Is it Raspberry pi or orange pi?

I have a Photon-S. I think this uses a different board to the Photon. I would happily change the board for something that used G codes but I don't want to wreck it.

If anyone has actually re-engineered a Photon printer I would be interested in how it was done.

Re: Interested in using NanoDLP on Anycubic Photon

Hi, mine uses an raspberry pi 3 with a ramps board on marlin.
What do you mean by re-engineered? As in reverse engineered the chitu board and then installed a generic linux on the original board and then running nanodlp on it?
There is no such thing in existence, at least not the last time I checked.

Re: Interested in using NanoDLP on Anycubic Photon

you could write like you did the conversion to use a rasp3 to control anycubic photon s
