Top Down Printer - Wiper System

Hello Shahin,

I've built a DLP top down printer with wiper system and should be great if we can use the boundry values to reduce the wiper movement and also to optmize the build time.

Is it possible? These variables can be seen at Preview Layers but didn't find how to apply them to my gcodes.

Thank you

Great idea.
They are available externally, you can call external program to use those values and return calculations to gcode boxes.
I kind of worry support them internally as it will slow down gcode pre-processor.

Thank you Shahin

I don't know how to use external programs yet, but I'll do some research and I'll try to implement it.

Is it possible to give more info regarding the printer? I'd be interested in knowing more about it

How you built it, etc. I'm interested in building a top down as well, but at the moment I'm stumped by things like how to keep the resin level stable as the build plate lowers into the vat, wiper systems, etc. It'll probably be better communicating off-forum so I don't hijack your thread too much, so I'll PM you my email address

As soon as I got home I'll answer you.
I've been developing this project for two years.
It's a long long story...

Re: Top Down Printer - Wiper System

Hi Rodrigo,

I am currently designing plans for my own top down printer, using 4k and wonder if you would be so kind to share any information on your build?  I own a Milkshake3D and am pulling it apart to gather info along with whatever I can find on the net.  Idea, is to get a much larger build area than what is commercially availiable!
