Hello, I have a Wanhao D7 Plus dlp printer that can only read CWS files. It would be nice if ChiTu can export a sliced model to a CWS file. I tried to rename a .zip export to .cws but that doens't work. I notice that the gcode language is really different.
Or is there any solution to solve this in a different way?
Just letting anyone still wondering know, renaming .zip to .cws does not work. The D7 Plus will show the number of layers when file is selected, but the print will not start. So far my best solution is to generate supports in chitubox, save them in a new STL, and then slice that in creation workshop
Just to clear things up for users thinking of using Chitubox with Ubuntu (64bit) and Wanhao D7 (cws fileformat). It does not work! Since April 2019 Chitubox support says, it will be fixed. Nothing happended. Maybe Wanhao D7 works with windows, I do not know. But definitely it does not work with Ubuntu.
Thanks for the D7 plus support! This is hugely welcome as the Wanhao software licensing seems to be a problem at the moment, rendering my printer useless. There is a problem with the file format though as the printer messes up the layer order. This may have to do with the PNG file naming (numbering). Could you please add a feature for D7 users to add leading zeros to the png file names so that the D7 firmware's file sorting logic doesn't make these errors?
Is there any working plugin for 1.7/1.8 Chitubox? So far nothing works for me: The plugins seem to work, however no file is being created. When I save to stl and open in Creation Workshop everything looks nice, I can slice and everything. When I save to .cws my D7 plus finds 0 layers. Renaming the zip from chitu I get the same issue as stated above - layers are shown but won't start printing.
I installed Chitubox, but did not find the CWS format there, which was mentioned back in 2019. Will this format be added or do you need to download a separate plugin with this format? Or is the CWS format available only in the PRO version?
