I have a Flashforge Foto 8.9 resin printer and I see it was added as a printer in Chitubox version 1.9.0. However, it only wants to create .fdg files on a save and the Flashforge Foto 8.9 requires the saves to be in the .svgx format for them to be printed.
I had a 1.8.1 version set so it would output. .svgx files, but that laptop crashed and I lost that working version.
Can someone assist me in getting a flashforge 8.9 .cfg file or plugin that will allow me to save the output as .svgx files.
I am having this same issue. In addition when I try to edit the configuration file it says that I do ...
So I kind of figured it out, before you go and edit the "defaultSlicerExport:FlashDLPrint file(*.svgx), fdg(*.fdg)" on the Foto 8.9.cfg file first you have to right click and go into properties and there go to the tab labeled security, once there you have to edit the permisions to allow you to change the line within that file. Once you set all the permissions to allow, apply, hit ok and then open the .cfg file with the notepad in order to change that line and save it. Now very important, after you do this, you must add the Flashforge 8.9 profile into Chitubox AGAIN in order for the changes to take effect. If you have any other questions as to how to do this let me know. Also, this was how I did it for Windows, not sure about Mac as I'm not familiar with them yet. Long time PC user, not that I hate Mac's they're just too expensive for my budget right now lol.
Hi Sonja and anyone else - - @sonja trying to understand your instructions so if I slice a file it becomes and FDG file (I have flash forge 8.9) if i right click on THAT file and go to secruity it shows a bunch of things like system, adminstrators, etc. what specifically do we change? What do you mean by "change the line within that file?"
I am having the same issue....has anyone solved this before?
So for those that are MacOS users, what you will do is go into Finder. Scroll down to the Locations section, from here you will find the local storage device (for me it was Macintosh HD). You will click on it and it will bring up the file explorer with a list of directories (folders). You will go to the Applications directory and click into it. From here you will scroll and find Chitubox. Next you will right click on Chitubox, this will bring up a tab with a list of options. You will then need to click "Show package contents". After this it will bring up another tab in the Finder (File explorer on windows). Here you will see a directory (folder) that says "Contents", click into this and find "Resources". Once in the "Resources" directory you will see another directory that says "resource", click into it and find the "machine" directory. Upon clicking into it "resource" it should bring up a list of different machine .cfg files. From here all you need to do is find the FlashForgeFoto8.9.cfg and open it, edit the file by adding the line: defaultSlicerExport:svgx(*.svgx). After doing so you will need to go into Chitubox and add a new printer profile with the updated FLashForgeFoto8.9.cfg file. After this it should be saving the files as .svgx
So I have edited every single version of the Flashforge_Foto_8_9.cfg file I have (in Chitubox Basic 1.9.4 )... It STILL refuses to allow me to save a sliced file in .svgx format. Nothing I seem to be able to do allows me to save in this format.
@ the recent comment user. Did you delete the old printer profile on Chitubox and create a new one? I was having the same problem with it until I deleted the old printer profile I had created and added a new one.
