ChopChop3D Slicer BETA_05 is out !

in #printing3d3 years ago

Hi guys !

A new beta is out with a new feature to ease supports selection, you can directly paint on supported faces where you want to have supports.
You just paint (or erase) where you need, then ask to add supports for those painted surfaces.

It is quiet helpful if you want to speed up the edition of supports and reduce the time to add pillars manually.
Also, you just need to paint a very small surface and if there is a support it will be taken.
Of course, you can do selection of pillars after.

Happy printing !

As a 3D printing enthusiast, I appreciate your work. Slicers (and FDM 3D printing as a whole) are now in their infancy and lack many complex features. I would really like to see more slicers on the market, each bringing its own unique useful features. There is still a lot to be done in support and infill generation algorithms. There are still some tricks to be implemented that could potentially greatly improve surface finish. Also, I really hope to see 4 and 5 axis printers in a few years along with slicer support for such machines.
I would be great if you could write a post telling about some cool new unique features of your slicer and compare it with Cura and Simplify 3D.

More things will come. It is a really long road, and it takes a huge amount of both time and efforts to make it works.

I'm sure they will. Can't wait for your next update :)
A little note, just in case if you are looking to share this burden of developing a new slicer with someone... I would be more than happy to help. Being a 3D printing nerd and a professional software developer I probably could contribute something to this project.
