I took the plunge and made the online slicing application live today. Read about it on the Free Stuff page.

    Hi,

    my name is mario, i am from germany and i am the developer of the open exposer resin 3d printer https://hackaday.io/project/1129-openexposer. Since the printer prototype is working, i want to rewrite my quick and dirty hacked python slicing software.

    I think it would be a good starting point if i use your freesteelpy lib as base, cause i don’t want to reinvent the whole wheel. On your blog you suggested that it is possible to get the linux stuff by request. I am interested 🙂

    thanks & regards
    Mario

    Hi Mario,

    This was long ago and the C++ code is now owned by Autodesk (crap).

    However, more recently, I was making a pure Python implementation with a more interesting geometric structure:
    https://bitbucket.org/goatchurch/barmesh

    When it is stable I hoped to automatically convert parts of the code into C++ so it runs as fast as the original without compromising on portability.

    Give it a try and tell me how you get on. I would love for this to be used.
