NanoSlicer

I have bundled our web based support generator and slicer to a separate app. It still not complete but currently in working state.

Advantage is that you can slice and generate support pretty quickly on your pc or mac and send the processed file to raspberry pi.


https://www.nanodlp.com/download/nanoslicer.win32.zip
https://www.nanodlp.com/download/nanoslicer.win64.zip
https://www.nanodlp.com/download/nanoslicer.linux64.zip
https://www.nanodlp.com/download/nanoslicer.mac.zip

To use mac and linux versions.
Open terminal go to the nanoslicer folder and run the program using command below.

sudo ./nanoslicer

Re: NanoSlicer

Very nice. It is getting old waiting for slicing when I have a super duper computer. Without me looking at it yet, does it package the slices up and you then upload it as a job somehow to nanodlp? Any way to automate the upload from the PC end using scripts (linux, scp sftp, or web post)?

Re: NanoSlicer

What determines the slicing layer resolution since profiles are not used? Say 100microns vs 65?

Re: NanoSlicer

Sure we could have transfer ability to nanoDLP later on. Currently it slice whatever it found in its folder.
There is a settings page which you could modify resolution/dimming and other options.

Re: NanoSlicer

Couple of initial comments
the pan and orbit ( via the mouse) act a bit strange and are a bit slow
if you accidnetally pan or orbit and touch the model then the model moves but there is no way to restore it to its original position

Re: NanoSlicer

There needs to be some slicing feedback / status but I'm sure that is already on the list and know this is very beta.

Re: NanoSlicer

Thanks guys. Will try to fix the issues.

bigfilsing,
Not much could be done for pan/orbit performance. It is all about graphic card, driver and your browser webgl support.

Re: NanoSlicer

Thanks. I was able to cludge my own remote slicer for the Mac until the Mac version of nanodlp gets updated to support remote slicing. I have a watched folder that when it see's an STL dropped into it, it prompts for the profile # to use and the layer height then calls nano slicer to slice and when it sees the zip show up it then posts the zip and required fields using the api to nanodlp on the pi. How often is the nanoslicer updated? Options like hex infill are not there yet.

Re: NanoSlicer

James, we are moving away from nanoslicer, it has very few users and we are after supporting mac. Currently we could support mac as remote slicer. But serial support still is not ready for mac so we could have fully working version for mac.

Re: NanoSlicer

Ok. That will work, from what I see, most users are trying to get away from a dedicated computer so just faster slicing (remote slicing) is probably what should be focused on. I liked the ability to call the nano slicer on the command line so it doesn't have to be running all the time. I worked with someone else to test remote slicing on windows and he finally got it where he saw the pi show it was sending the job to windows but it took forever and I don't think it finished. I can't test yet since I am using a Mac. I you have have an updated version with the remote slicing I can test it.

Re: NanoSlicer

Hello,

I tried the NanoDLP mac version, I was searching about infill in nanoSlicer and I see a nano dlp mac version today ;D
Unfortunately, it works only for a few page : if I go to the setup page, it stop working, same in import profile,... Is there a way to start it in debug mode ?

edit : too bad for NanoSlicer support, I was planning create a desktop app to slice stl throught nanoslicer. Nano DLP is really great but not so user frendly for newbies and my plan would be to get it user flendly, with touch screen (already working), full worklow with auto-orient,... on a desktop app (based on Electron) whith nanoslicer cli,... it only miss infill ;D

Re: NanoSlicer

I second that. I liked the command line version so I could implement my own automation and not always keep a web app running. If you could just somehow (like you have nanoslicer) have the slicing engine always compilible separate with the nanoslicer wrapper then keeping them in sync would be easier. Even if you have to get rid of the web server and setup portion of nanoslicer and make it all command line and parameter based for ease of maintenance. If people need a web based slicer use the full version.

Re: NanoSlicer

After  crash you should see some messages output on terminal paste them here.
Nanoslicer rarely downloaded before. Will try update it too maybe remove whole web section as it redundant after remote slicer feature.

Re: NanoSlicer

Web section is redondant yes, but the CLI is really interesting!

For the crash, it's the problem, I don't see any message output from the terminal when the server freeze. It's just timing out the request and never get back untill I reboot the server.

Re: NanoSlicer

Too many changes on nanodlp slicer, performance optimization and couple of new advanced features coming soon. It is difficult to keep nanoslicer updated together with nanodlp, considering very low number of downloads. At-least for now it would discontinued.

Re: NanoSlicer

Hello, I'm making a open source slicer and préparator software like b9creator (with support, auto support generator, auto orientation,...) and wIth the integration of nanoslicer in it to directly export to Stl, slice it with nanoslicer and upload it to nanodlp via network (and POST request) with only one click.it works really well and it's very interesting for nanodlp user. Is this really not possible to update it to get the latest version and keep it updated for my software?

Edit : I just see you remove latest build on the website. is it possible to send me the latest version of nanoslicer for every plateform? My open source software integrate it for all platform but I didn't download other version than Mac (like I'm still in beta) and if I don't have other plateform, I did all these software for nothing since 1months... ;(

I know.

At least you can add command line slicing features to Nanodlp in order to allow 3rd parties devs to use your slicer or live somewhere links to last versions.

Just a suggestion.
