    nanoDLP with Mark IV

    As I had to move the printer away from our living room , I don't have much spare room left for a dedicated PC... plus, I'm not that impressed by the features and capabilities of Creation Workshop, and the use of a secondary screen in Windows 10 is giving me headaches.

    So, gave it a try with a Raspberry Pi 3, running nanoDLP, hooked up to the Morpheus Mark IV.

    Main advantages being:

    • no more additional dedicated (and error prone) laptop/desktop computer needed,
    • a wireless Morpheus Mark IV, just use any tablet/smartphone/pc to access the nanoDLP webpages over wifi,
    • (still to do: ) nicely integrated inside the Morpheus, with the Pi running from Arduino power,
    • (still to do: ) and last but not least, advanced features like 'variable exposure rates', 'mask support', 'in print pictures with a Pi Camera', ...

    The somewhat down side being: nanoDLP currently (build 1117) only accepts SLC, SVG or Zip (PNGs) files. Meanwhile, Asiga Stomp allows STL to SLC export (find it here).

    Here are the settings I'm currently using on nanoDLP build 1117:

    • Setup - Hardware Setup:

    • Setup - Customized Buttons: (Note: created an 'initialise' button, as 'Gcode - Bootup' above is often executed too early. Optionally, created a 'home' button, if you added a lower endstop, see thread here)

    • Printer Profile: used for FTD resin at 100 layer height. (I still need to figure out how to improve the 'Gcode After Each Layer' with variable delay)

    See post #4 below for the installation instructions.

    Have fun!

    What a coincidence! I just ordered my Pi3 yesterday! haha!

    Seems like a good path to follow!

    Links to nanoDLP and other soft so we can follow your path please?


    My other question would be if using a IR Pi Camera would affect the prints or the camera itself... so we can monitor the whole process in the dark

    Weird, I'm sure I added links in the first post... Seems they got lost.

    Oh no they're still there, nanoDLP is linked, my bad lol!

    Thanks for the further explanations


    Wow! Finally! Software that tells you resin usage in ml! WOhooo!!!

    BTW the nanodlc page also links to this
    SLC Format

    You can save your 3D files as SLC format from many popular 3D programs. But if your favorite program does not export SLC or quality wise it is not good, you can try programs below:

    Just tried to drive the Morpheus LCD by RPi3 with nanoDLP, and it works!
    The Pi found the Morpheus LCD as being an "HIF-HID1920X540H_" and runs as [HDMI CEA (16) RGB full 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz, progressive.

    Pic of the Morpheus LCD showing a nanoDLP calibration image, added to the first post.

    Couldn't resist to connect the USB cable as well , but the default speed/motor/actuator settings seems incompatible with the Morpheus, as I'm getting inconsistent results when moving the Z axis. Communication via Gcode (M106 S240, M107, ...) works nicely though!
    Can't wait for an answer from TOW with correct settings to try out a first print.

    Wohooo!!! moving forward!!

    The software really seems complete and a dream come true!

    If the resin calculator is somewhat accurate, this will be a very NICE addition to the Morpheus "one-in-all" solution without the need for a laptop!
