Interfacing with the AON-M2 is done using either the touchscreen interface or via a web browser on your local area network (LAN). However, all files must be uploaded via a modern browser. A network connection between a workstation and the AON-M2 is required for use.
AON3D and the AON-M2 do not support legacy browsers!
The web client utilizes modern browser functionality such as WebSockets and WebGL, so using an up-to-date browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Safari is required.
Please note that although a connection to a network is required for use, the network can be air-gapped from the wide area network. Traffic to AON3D servers is not a requirement for use, however will be required for advanced remote troubleshooting and debugging.
The AON-M2 can connect to your local area network (LAN) via WiFi or RJ45 Ethernet and will require a DHCP router for IP address assignment. If you require a static IP, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist you. Internet access will be required to access certain features, software updates, and for technical support.
To allow the AON-M2 to receive automatic software updates, your network will need to allow for outgoing requests over port
53 (DNS), and
123 (NTP). If for policy or other reasons you are not able to connect the M2 to a network with internet access, you will need to contact us to make separate arrangements to allow for regular updates of the software and the ability for us to provide technical support.
1.3 Slicing Software
AON3D only officially supports the use of Simplify3D to slice 3D model files. You are free to use any slicing software you wish to use, however, we cannot guarantee print quality and will be unable to assist in ensuring your success.
