Core changes in Slice-Up Beta

Slice-Up Beta is built on the same modular logic underling the legacy version.

If you already were a Slice-Up user, you should feel at home already. Take note of this few core changes, and go on creating same as before.

If you are a new user, please check out Getting Started with Slice-Up.

Current changes

  • Retraction is not supported. The focus is on continuous tool-path generation.

  • Open paths are not officially supported. This will change in the near future.

  • You can now import custom slices that you prepared in your CAD software of choice, or you can use the import slices to adjust the layer heights of your object at any moment.

  • The transformation modules (rotate, scale, translate) are now condensed in a single tool called transform

  • All curve types are handled internally, you do not have to worry about it.

  • Working with multiple walls is now easier then ever. You can create multiple wall objects using the offset component. You can use up to 4 walls per object.

  • There are only two print logic: Spiral will only work with single wall object. Print Multi will work with both single and multi wall objects.

  • non-planar slices are now supported across all modules. To work with non-planarity you will have to generate your own slices and import them. More about it here.
