    slic3r claims to support dlp - linux versions.
    https://octoprint.org/

    probably worth a look.

    curious aardvark, many thanks for the much appreciated help once more!!!

    I will definitely look into the software first. In the meantime with respect to the FDM choices, i was thinking about a CR-10S (possibly the S4). Would that be a sound choice (requiring post processing, working with HIPS and PLA) or i am better off with an i3 MK3?

    I ll get back to the DLP when i ll get more info on software solutions and inform this post accordingly.

    if you're getting an i3 - then the prusa i3 mk3 is definitely the best on the market.

    Just got a lot more cool features than the cr10 :-)
    Not cheap, but probably worth the money.

    can you run a windows emulator under linux ?

    yep, apparently you can: https://itsfoss.com/use-windows-applications-linux/

    so either wine or a virtual box - if you need any install software, pm me :-)

    Virtual boxes are fun. But wine sounds really interesting. Might install ubuntu on something and have a play. Haven't looked at linux for a while.

    Yes supposedly wine helps with windows based software so i will give it a try before getting a D7.

    In the meantime i am intrigued by the good reviews of the CR-10S and it's build volume in comparison to the MK3. (and it is 350eu cheaper).

    Thank you VERY much again for the wealth of information and help!

    you do get what you pay for. whole lot of newer tech and better quality kit in the prusa.
    The cr10 is a decent kit, but nothing like the prusa mk3.

    Thing is most 3d printers are pretty good.
    You wnat a bigger print volume: https://tevo3dprinterstore.com/produ...3d-printer-kit
    I'm a huge fan of deltas. faster, quieter, less vibration and at least as good a quality print as the cartesian machines.
    To put into perspective. My he3d k200 200 kit, can print quality on the slowest setting I use with it, faster than my makerbot clones print at top speed.

    Gotcha curious aardvark! Will look into the Mk3 kit and the delta solutions as well!

    Many thanks!
