The PhotonFileEditor is a utility to display, make and edit files for the Anycubic Photon printer. The current version is beta. This means that you may encounter bugs. Some bugs can potentially harm your printer, imagine for instance a buggy photonfile which tells your printer to move down instead of up after printing a layer!
PhotonFileEditor is programmed in Python 3.6 and uses one mandatory library, pygame, and two optional libraries (numpy and pyOpenGL).
You can run PhotonFileEditor in Windows, OSX and Linux.
All the releases can be found at https://github.com/Photonsters/PhotonFileEditor/releases
For Windows an easy install package is available. For Linux and OSX you have to install python and some libraries.
Attention: PhotonFileEditor will not work with Python 2! Read Issue #3
