Slicing is the third step of a three-step workflow. Slices can be previewed before exporting, downloading or sending to a pritner.
Add New Printer
The app tries to automatically discover any NanoDLP in the network. Also, it’s possible to add a printer manually by its IP and port. IP and port combination needs to be unique.
Resin profiles for the connected printer are fetched and listed. Slicing would be done for the selected resin profile.
Slice button sends the whole 3D scene to the connected printer to be sliced with the selected resin profile. The output slices/layers can be previewed by the next tool.
Once slicing output is available, it can be previewed making use of a vertical slider.
Moving slider up and down, the corresponding slice PNG image is shown. Moreover, the corresponding slice is indicated by a thin line in 3D editor too.
Download or Send to Printer
Slicing output can be downloaded as a ZIP file or can be sent to the connected printer to be printed.
The whole 3D scene can be exported in STL file format.
Alternatively, slicing output can be exported in NSlice file format which contains slices as vector graphics rather than raster. In slicing pipeline, vector images are one step before raster PNG images.
