  • The preview of .zcodex now runs more smoothly in the Preview step,
  • Bug fixes:
    • empty infill should no longer occur with ABS-based materials with 0.39 layer thickness on the M300,
    • loaded external materials should no longer be displayed as unknown in the My Devices panel with M Series Plus printers,
    • saving projects for Inkspire in the Print Settings step should no longer cause problems,
    • Wi-Fi connection should no longer cause the program to freeze when switching tabs, performing actions, or using the Auto-arrange option,
    • slicing time for models with a lot of details has been shortened (FDM printers),
    • keyboard shortcuts Shift + 3 and Shift + 4 should no longer cause problems.

Z-SUITE 2 for macOS is stable only for versions up to 10.14 (Mojave). When using newer versions, Z-SUITE 2 may not run as efficient.
