New CS1 Host version out- Fullscreen Printing!

I just realeased a new version: 0.3.0!

This one is the first one with proper fullscreen printing!! That’s right… Full screen display, respecting the exposition time, and in-between null RED frames during Axis movement.

The Axis movement is still the same from the previous 0.2.0.

    3D Printing is officially on the Nanoscale people. :) It is now possible to print your own Microprocessor….Theoretically that is. I wonder what it would take to make a RepRap type DIY 3D lithographic nano printer :) 3D printing brings a whole new meaning to the term “Build your own Computer.”

      @ShaderZ
      Looks like it only works for UV resin much like chemshapes…..just really really tiny 😛 still way cool.

    Roberto, I have some questions:

    1. Is there Support for the Arduino Mega 1280 on Linux? in Windows i can connect CS1 with the Mega 1280 but not in Linux, although the device is properly attached when looking with dmesg | tail. I have arduino IDE 1 installed and can upload firmware to the 1280 in Linux after selecting the right Serial Port /dev/ttyUSB0. For the mega 2560 it is /dev/ttyACM0.
    but when compiling CS1 with mega 1280 connected, the device is not listed in CS1 in the “Serial Port” frame. when compiling CS1 with the mega 2560 connected, the device is listed properly with /dev/ttyACM0.

    2. can u say us what IDE’s do u use for the developement in linux? cause im trying to implement some features like VAT-Release via Stepper and Refill Container via a peristaltic pump driven by a stepper too.

    The idea is to use 4 steppers with RAMPS. 1 for Z-movement as you, 2 for VAT-Release, 3 for the pristaltic pump, 4 for a lense moving in front of the Beamer to shrink the picture and to higher the resolution if needed for small parts printing.

    3. can u give me a hint where to start in your CS1 code for implementing this via the G’ and M’ codes?

    4. did u remember my question for a Donation-Link? :) it was not a joke

    Martin

      1. For now, in Linux the software only checks for ttyACM, not ttyUSB. I’ll add this second option asap.

      2. I don’t use any IDE. I only use a text editor named Editra, which is written in python with wxwidgets. Apart from that, I use qtCreator to create the UI file, and standard Makefile.

      3. You should probably implement that in the software itself, by issuing G codes to move X,Y,Z,E1 and E2, rather than modifying the firmware. I’m working on that for the CS1 right now, so I have no tips on how you can do it yet, but I will have soon. I’m also working on add all of this as a hardware “plugin” that will reside in a plugin folder. That way, you can just do your own based on the CS1 plugin “template”.

      4. Yes I do remember the donation-link… I’ll add that asap too… it’s just a matter of priorities, you known? thanks lots to keep the interest on that!! :)

    As it seems you are quiet buisy these days i tried a View IDE’s and i’m now working me into the CS1 code with Monkey-Studio. Any Debian Derivates like ubuntu can get it by typing “sudo apt-get install monkeystudio” in the terminal.

    Hope i can help more soon, when i am a bit more familar with the code.
