How to create 3D Print files with Live 3D Print Process support on the Touchscreen?

Postby phildon » Thu Jan 24, 2019 10:05 am

Hi,

how can i enable the 3D Live Print Process on my Touchscreen?

I've only 2 Print files that show me the 3D Process on the Touchsceen, the Original Test File from the Raise3D USB Stick and one that i've created on Tinkercad.

All other 3D Files that i've downloaded from Thingiverse and sliced it with the latest ideamaker don't show me the 3D Live Process, it only shows me a empty Buildplate, check the picture below.



is it limited by the size of the .gcode?


Thanks

you need to supply the .data File with the gcode to the printer :)
Are you printing from USB Stick and only using the .gcode?
Cheers, David
If you can dream it, you can print it! :lol:

I'm printing direct from Ideamaker using the Upload function.

I've tried the export function from Ideamaker and saved the .gcode and the .data file to the usb stick, but on the Touchscreen it shows my only a empty icon with "RAISE3D" Branding. :(

The Giveaway Spinner Raise3D Test file shows the 3D Live Preview :S

Did you slice your file by ideaMaker? Does the data file in your USB stick have the same name as your gcode file?

Just try this simple 3D Print File below, downloaded from Thingiverse and sliced with the latest IdeaMaker.

No 3D Preview and no 3D Live Process on the Touchscreen...

Downloaded 2times but no Feedback...

Please tell me, do you have a 3D Preview on your Touchscreen with this file?

@phidon

Third time lucky!

I have just downloaded your files and tried them on my N2.

Answer. No image is displayed on the touchscreen when printing. Neither is there a file icon image (only RAISE3D is shown). This was I think the same as you saw.

However, I then downloaded the speed boat STL from Thingiverse, sliced it in ideaMaker and then sent it to my printer. This time I had both the correct file icon and the image of the speed boat whilst printing. I guess your .data file is corrupt. Try mine attached.

Regards

Ari

Would you like to advise the configuration of your computer? Especially the graphic card.

@Ari
Thank you for your Feedback, your file is working, got the 3D Preview on the Icon and also the 3D Live Process.

Maybe something is wrong with my IdeaMaker Software...

Which Version of IdeaMaker are u using, the latest one, 3.3.0?

@Vicky@Raise3D
For slicing i'm using only a Lenovo T410 Business Laptop, it has a Intel i5-540M CPU with a integrated Intel GM 5700 (Integrated HD Graphics).

Do u think the GPU can be the problem?

Should i try it with a PC with a more powerful GPU?

I'm using an older version of ideaMaker Ver.3.1.7.1850.

Only because I am working on a long project and do not want to introduce unexpected results part way through. Will update later.

Thanks for your answer.

Finally got it working now.

It seems that it really depends on the GPU, tried it with 2 Laptops that use a Native GPU, one with a old Mobility Radeon 5850 and one with a GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q Design, and now it works with the latest IdeaMaker, tried it with 2 different Projects, 3D Preview on the Icon is shown and the 3D Live Process is also working.

It should be added to the FAQ that u need a good GPU to create a proper .data File.

We did request an OpenGL 2.0-capable system for ideaMaker in ideaMaker requirements.

Thanks for the Information, but the Intel GMA 5700 Integrated GPU supports OpenGL up to 2.1, but as u see, it can't create a proper .data File...

Thanks for your information. We will see whether we can find some other technical data to define the requirements more clearly.
