Spark system print recording management


After entering the Timelapse panel from the main interface of Spark, you can set the automatic recording mode and view the generated recording video.
Spark has two recording modes: Timed and On Z Change



Timer recording mode

Timed recording mode is to take a snapshot every time, and then combine all photos to generate a video.


The setting parameters of timing recording are:
Snapshot interval: Time between snapshots
Timelapse frame rate: The number of frames per second of the video, calculated as 1 snapshot every 10 seconds and 25 frames per second. The length of the video generated by 1 hour of printing is 14.4 seconds.
Timelapse post roll: How long the last photo was shown at the end of the video

After the settings are complete, check the box before Save as default, and then click Save changes


Layer-by-layer recording mode

The layer-by-layer recording mode is to print a layer, take a snapshot, and then combine all the photos to generate a video.
Please note that the layer-by-layer recording mode only supports printing GCode files in the Spark system, and does not support printing GCode files in the SD card.

The setting parameters of layer-by-layer recording are:
Minimum interval: The minimum time to print each layer. If the time to print one layer is less than this value, no snapshot will be generated.
Timelapse frame rate: The number of frames per second of the video is calculated based on the 0.15mm layer height and 25 frames per second. The length of the video generated by printing a 10cm high model is 26.7 seconds.
Timelapse post roll: How long the last photo was shown at the end of the video
Retraction Z-Hop: The nozzle is on the head during the pumping. The WEEDO 3D printer does not support this function. Please set the value to 0.

After the settings are complete, check the box before Save as default, and then click Save changes


Video file management

The video files generated automatically after printing are shown in the list below
The video file name is the print file name plus the print time. Click the download icon on the far right of the file name list to download the video to your local computer for viewing.
Click the delete icon to the right of the file name list to delete the video file
