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. Please note however, that the network can be airgapped 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, Chrome, Safari, or Microsoft Edge is required.
The AON-M2 can connect to your LAN via WiFi or RJ45 Ethernet. Internet access will be required to access certain features, software updates, and for technical support.
If for policy or other reasons you are not able to connect the AON-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.
More information on connecting the AON-M2 to a network can be found in the Network Connection section of the Installation Instructions.
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.
