NanoDLP with D7 and MAC/Windows

I have installed the MAC version of NanoDLP on my computer. When the program is launched a terminal window opens and seems to initialize and just sits there open with the last line stating "Terminal Reader Activated".

I then go to the NanoDLP dashboard and I am able to see the online web-based NanoDLP dashboard ok.

I hook up my USB cable and HDMI cable directly to my Wanhao D7 ant turn the unit on, however I can't connect to it. I go to my display settings on my computer and the dual display option doesn't come up at all. Trying to show the calibration grid on the D7 does nothing.

I thought I could run the D7 directly through my MAC using the online dashboard. Am I supposed to use a raspberry pi as a go-between from my MAC to my D7 printer?

I tried running the NanoDLP program on my work Windows computer and get the same results when using a dual monitor - my dual monitor is set as an extension to my desktop - when I try to project the calibration grid from the online NanoDLP site nothing happens.

Your OS must detect second display before using that. Probably it is cable or LCD issue.

Shahin,

Thank you for the reply. I thought it was the HDMI cable as well. Tried another one, but still wasn't getting any image on the display. Was afraid it might have been the LCD screen - purchased it used where the seller was running it off of his raspberry pi and controlling it with his phone - was working fine at the time.

Downloaded the Wanhao D7 hex file (version 1.3) and reloaded the firmware through CURA from a Windows computer and now everything seems to be working using CreationWorkshop via windows computer. Haven't tried it again with the MAC yet. I've been putting off trying a test/calibration print until I have more than a couple of hours to fiddle with it. Spent a few days cleaning the resin from everything and replacing the FEP sheet. Hopefully, this weekend I can get it printing. smile
