Connectivity

Interfacing with the AON-M2 is done using either the human-machine interface (HMI) touchscreen or via a web browser on your local area network (LAN). However, all files must be uploaded via a modern browser and a network connection between a workstation and the AON-M2 is required for use. Please note that the network can be air-gapped from the wide area network, and traffic to AON3D servers is not a requirement 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, Google Chrome, or Microsoft Edge is required.

The AON-M2 can connect to a LAN via WiFi or RJ45 Ethernet. Internet access will be required to:

  • Access certain AON3D features
  • Access AON3D software updates
  • AON3D technical support.

If restrictions exist which limit the AON-M2 to a network with internet access, please reach out to our Customer Success team at help@aon3d.com to make separate arrangements to allow for regular software updates and the ability for us to provide technical support.

More information on connecting the AON-M2 to a network can be found in the Network Connection section of the Installation Instructions.

Slicing Software

The only official 3D slicing software endorsed by AON3D is Simplify3D®.

Simplify3D Logo

The customer is free to use the 3D slicing software of their choice. However, AON3D cannot guarantee the print quality other than with the use of Simplify3D® and we will be unable to assist with your overall success with the AON-M2.
