    I have new buy da vunci 2.0 dylual head

    Hi. Guys do you know how can directly connect with solidwork with out "stl" translation ????

    It's not possible.

      It would be awesome if one day we had 3D printer that could handle a STL directly. Unfortunately the sort of computation that turns a STL into a the instructions to move the motors and create the print is intensive. So for now 3D printers rely on your computer to prepare the model.

      I theorize that in the time it takes your heaters to heat up a quick enough slicing algorithm could scan the model for where to add supports and do the first layer slice. Then in the time it takes to print one layer it could be queuing up the next, and so on until the print is finished. But unfortunately no one has built a prototype yet that closely couples the printing and slicing hardware. If anything more powerful than a beaglebone is necessary to pull this off it may not be feasable.

        it wouldn't be difficult if all printers used the exact same format for data. If that was the case, there would be incentive for someone to write the code either as a post processor from solidworks or as a native processor for the printer.. It's the same with CAD/CAM/MFG using CNC machine shop equipment.

          I love how theoretical this topic has gotten.

          Your idea is completely unreasonable. All printers can't use the the same code because doing so negates the possibility of there being different printers. Even with similar (FDM for example) machines theres different extrusion speeds, heated build platforms or not, xy vs h-bot or delta, and retraction. There's also the question of layer height, infill, etc. Plus what standard would you promote, gcode? That's like the assembly language of cnc. Why not something more human readable and hackable? On the other hand why not something more secure?

          Add far as I know nobody has got it right yet. Until we do demanding a standard isn't in anyone's best interest.

            thanks cymon and friends, it is really good information for me. Mean while, we need standard for mechanic.isn't it ? i under standing. from nick
