New Features: Raytracing and Rendering of preview images for stl and g-code

edited April 2015 in News
We are working hard on our next major update of Repetier-Server. One cool new feature is Raytracing and Rendering for stl files and g-codes.

Repetier-Server creates really nice preview images, which will be fully customizable. You can adjust the quality, colors, shadows, lights, ...

Here are some examples:

We also had the idea to pimp you preview images with photographic backgrounds like cloudy skies, atmospheric sunsets or stars in the night sky which could look like this:

In addition to a repertoire of already contained images you could also use your own images. But this comes only if there is a demand for this feature. So if you would like to get this feature in a later version, give us some feedback.

  • That looks awesome!  It would definitely be better than the current method.  I often find myself picking a certain angle to view that part at so that the "glare" is just right to see the details.  This would be WAY better!
  • It would be nice to be able to configure the color on per gcode file basis. I upload and keep gcode files of the same print object multiple times (for different filaments). At the moment they all are rendered in the same color. It would be nice to have render color reflect the color of the filament.
  • You can set the color int Global Settings -> Preview Images. If you change this before uploading the G-Code, the new color will be used.
  • Thanks, I will give it a try. :-)
