HALOT ONE and CXDLP


#1

Hello, I want to thank you for the awesome slicer first of all.
I would love to be able to export to .CXDLP format for the HALOT ONE printer directly from Formware 3D. I am tired of having to use UVTOOLS to do an export.
Thank you!

PS> I know there are two other posts with the same request. I just want to show that there are more people waiting for this feature. By the way I do own a Formware 3D License =) Merry Christmas.

ok thx for bringing it up!

I’m about to integrate the CTB SDK as well; just received documentation etc.
So I will do my best to take this one and the longer 4k also along in the same go.

Hello, still no .CXDLP after February update :cry:


#4

yeah… sorry. CTB and photonworksshop too some more time to do well.
I’ll have a look upcoming week.

You can always just use UVtools and link it after slicing to convert the file.

fyi… i’ve started implementation.

I’ve updated our installer today with the CXDLP file export.
Supports now the Halot One, Sky, Max and Lite.

kind regards

Thank you for adding .cxdlp and Halot One printer.
but The file sliced to .cxdlp will not load to the printer, the printer states “this model does not match the printer.”

Hi Gonzalo,

Can you email me the file you are trying to print? Or an example file?

Do you have the latest firmware installed on the printer?

I’ve build the export (in binary content) similar to UVTools exports.


Can you try his software to see if you can read the file?

kind regards

Hello Elco, thank you for all your help. My file exported from Formware3d as .CXDLP is read ok by UVTOOLS, I use UVTOOLS all the time. UVTOOLS exports to .CXDLP just fine too. (i choose v2 and the machine reads it ok)
But if I export to .CXDLP from Formware3D the file will fail when I send it to the printer. The message: “this model does not match the printer.” appears as soon as I load it.
I tried to upload the file here for you to check it out, but “new users cannot upload files” thing appears. What is your email so I can send it to you?
Thank you.

Gonzalo.

I see in the previous release notes that you list the HALOT SKY, MAX and LITE ONE, not the HALOT ONE… is that the problem? Is the HALOT ONE any different in file format?

Hi Gonzalo,

You are 100% right. I see it wrote the wrong printer type in the file.
Printer type is based on resolution X/Y when it’s exported.
But resolution was not set yet; so it defaulted to a wrong printer type.
I’ve corrected it and will upload the installer in 1min.

kind regards
Elco

Yes! it works! now it slices to .CXDLP and the machine loads and prints perfectly.
Thank you so much for your hard work!
