II   Let's get started

The Wi-Fi BOX is shipped with NanoDLP pre-installed and pre-configured. You can jump to B to learn how to connect the Wi-Fi BOX to your MODEL V printer. However, just in case you need to learn how to re-install NanoDLP, follow instructions A to do a clean install of NanoDLP.

A. Install NanoDLP

The Wi-Fi BOX is powered by a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. Please watch the video below to learn how to load NanoDLP on your Wi-Fi BOX.

  • Go to our Download page and scroll down to "Raspberry Pi Config File". Download the config.txt file.

  • In the zip file, you may find two reversions. Sometimes, one works better than the other. Normally Rev A will work. If not, try the other one.

  • Go to the boot drive on the SD card with your PC, you should find a config.txt file.

  • Replace the config.txt file with the one you have downloaded from our website.

  • Now your Wi-Fi BOX is configured to drive the printer's LCD display properly.

B. Connect and Access

  • Keep the power switch turned off and insert the micro SD card into your Wi-Fi BOX.

  • Plug in an Ethernet cable that connected to your PC or the router (WLAN network) which your PC connected with.

  • Plug the Wi-Fi BOX into your MODEL V 3D printer.

  • Power up your MODEL V 3D printer.

  • Turn on your Wi-Fi BOX.

  • You should see the LEDs on the side of the Wi-Fi BOX.

  • Wait about 2 minutes to allow the Raspberry Pi load the system and NanoDLP for the first time.

  • Go to NanoDLP CloudDashboard (click here) or use the Wi-Fi BOX's IP address to directly access to NanoDLP with your web browser.

  • You can configure the Wi-Fi settings in NanoDLP once you have access. Allow up to 2 minutes for your printer to show up here.

The "External Drive" function allows you to load printing files from an external USB drive. Visit nanodlp.com to learn how to use this function.

C. Optional Power Supply

For some users, upgrading to new version of NanoDLP will cause unstable connections. Use an external power supply to resolve this issue. You can use any USB 2.0 Male to Male cable and a 5V USB Charger to provide extra power to the WiFi BOX. Plug the USB cable into one of the USB port on your WiFi BOX. If you do not have a connection issue, an external power supply is optional.

Tip: When an external power supply is used, to turn off your WiFi BOX, you would need to turn off the power switch as well as the external power source. Use high quality and certified 5V USB charger only.
