MSLA/DLP, file analysis, calibration, repair, conversion and manipulation

This simple tool can give you insight of supports and find some failures. Did you forget what resin or other settings you used on a project? This can also save you, check every setting that were used with or simply change them!

Why this project?

I don't own a Prusa SL1 or any other resin printer, for now I’m only a FDM user with Prusa MK3 and a Ender3. PrusaSlicer is my only choose, why? Because I think it's the best and feature more, at least for me, simple but powerful.

So why this project? Well in fact I’m looking for a resin printer and i like to study and learn first before buy, get good and don't regret, and while inspecting i found that resin printers firmwares are not as universal as FDM, too many file formats and there before each printer can use their own property file, this of course limit the software selection, for example, only PrusaSlicer can slice SL1 files. So with that in mind i'm preparing when I got some resin printer in future I can use PrusaSlicer instead of others. I've explored the other slicers and again, no one give me joy, and i feel them unstable, many users slice model on PrusaSlicer just to get those supports and export stl to load in another, that means again PrusaSlicer is on the win side, the problem is they can't slice directly on PrusaSlicer, so, in the end, my project aims to do almost that, configure a printer on PrusaSlicer, eg: EPAX X1, slice, export file, convert SL1 to native printer file and print.

Please note i don't have any resin printer! All my work is virtual and calculated, so, use experimental functions with care! Once things got confirmed a list will show. But also, i need victims for test subject. Proceed at your own risk!

Library → Developers

Are you a developer? This project include a .NET 6.0 library (UVtools.Core) that can be referenced in your application to make use of my work. Easy to use calls that allow you work with the formats. For more information navigate main code to see some calls.

Nuget package: https://www.nuget.org/packages/UVtools.Core

Nuget

dotnet add package UVtools.Core

Scripting:

Develop and build from Source

Build directions
The fastest way to compile the project is by run the build/compile.bat, however if you wish to develop with visual studio follow the following steps:

  1. Install Visual Studio and include .NET development support
  2. Install the .NET 6.0 SDK if not included on previous instalation
  3. Install the Avalonia for Visual Sutdio:
  4. Install the Wix Toolset: (Required only for MSI build, optional)
    1. https://wixtoolset.org/releases
    2. https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=WixToolset.WiXToolset
  5. Open UVtools.sln
  6. Build

TODO

  • More file formats
  • Clean up & performance (always)
  • See features request under Github

Support my work / Donate

All my work here is given for free (OpenSource), it took some hours to build, test and polish the program. If you're happy to contribute for a better program and for my work i will appreciate the tip.
