I was wondering if there is a 3rd party slicer that is compatible with the Form2 printer (paid of free).
I’m a researcher at a bio-fluids lab and we use the printer to create casting molds for optical silicone.
The molds are of biological structures (mainly human air-ways) which means that support placement and management is crucial (this is the main complaint).
Other than the support placement, here are some other features that, i feel, crucially needed in the PreForm software (and some other bothering issues after a year of daily use):
- Mirror feature.
- Bulk auto-changing existing support point size (in a selected area, all the model etc.).
- Area/line selection for support placement (the supports will be applied using the defined settings only in the
selected area or on the “drawn” line).
- The software feels very inefficient with the PC resources.
- The work area view can be improved (rotation of the model should be done around the point where the mouse
courser is, full 360 degree control etc.)
