Bug fixes & Improvements

  • Improved printing quality of BASF Ultracur3D EL 60 for Zortrax Inkspire 2,

  • Improved the way of generating bridges. From now on, there will be more spots where bridges can be generated,
  • Fixed a bug where the Spiral Mode would not work in the Shell mode. The Spiral Mode is now disabled when using the Print Too Thin Walls and Cooling Tower options, as well as when generating supports.
  • Added new profiles for Kimya ABS-ESD and BASF Ultrafuse® PAHT CF15 for Zortrax M300 Dual,
  • Added 0.3 and 0.6 mm nozzle diameter to selected profiles for M Series Plus printers,

Bug fixes:

  • Added a new slicing mode for metal-polymer filaments with alternating direction and angles of laying paths, special hybrid support, special raft mode,
  • Added a new tool Automatic Model Scaling for Zortrax Endureal which automatically scales models intended to be printed with high-temp and metal filaments. The scaling takes place during the Preview step, according to the Automatic Model Scaling values for X, Y, and Z shown in the Print Settings step. It should be noted that the scaling parameters may differ from the proposed ones, depending on the geometry of the model and the planned post-processing (annealing),
  • Added Shell infill type for profiles available for Zortrax Endureal,

Bug fixes:

  • Resetting of the print settings has been improved when using Editable Support,
  • Generating thin walls with the Print Too Thin Walls option on has been improved – thin walls are now less curved,
  • More areas on the model where it is possible to generate Bridge(s) (areas without the need for support) are now detected, mainly in the case of thin walls and contours,
  • Cases where supports would merge with the model in the area of the support block’s seam are now minimized,
  • Positioning of the Waste Tower in the cases where the entire platform is in use has been improved (Endureal),
  • The Annealing option has been removed (Endureal),
  • Sending files from inCloud directly to the printer has been improved,

  • Generating low models consisting of only several layers has been improved,
  • Operation of the Cancel button during data preparation in the Support step has been improved,
  • Some cases of the over-extrusion occurring as a result of overlapping infill contours have been eliminated,

First, we’re sharing this beta version with the owners of Zortrax M Series Plus and Zortrax Endureal 3D printers.

  • Added new Infill patterns:
    • Gyroid (Patt. 4),
    • Triangular (Patt. 5),
    • Concentric (Patt. 6).
  • Added the Outer Walls option – it is now possible to change the number of contours in models. Higher numbers of contours increase the model’s durability, whereas smaller numbers reduce the print time,
  • Added the Offset Inner Contours option. It is now possible to change the distance between inner and outer contours – with smaller offset values both contours will be printed closer to each other, whereas bigger offset values reduce over-extrusion (this option applies also to models printed in the Shell mode),
  • The Normal Seam mode is now called Auto,
  • Added the Avoid overhangs checkbox in the Seam section. When checked, the slicer will not generate the seam on overhanging layers (if it’s possible),
  • Added 3 new Seam modes:
    • User specified,
    • Inner corner,
    • Sharpest corner.
  • Improved the quality of thin walls. The infill for thin walls is now generated as a single path with variable material feeding – this reduces the printer’s vibrations and artifacts such as holes on horizontal surfaces in small elements,
  • Added the Print Too Thin Walls – when checked, walls thinner than approximately 0.4 mm will be sliced and printed. Additionally, walls with measurements in the range of approximately 0.4 to 0.8 mm will be printed with a single path to achieve best quality and accuracy. (Final measurements depend on the nozzle’s diameter.)
  • Improved the quality of slanted surfaces – such areas are now smoother and bonded more effectively,
  • Improved the quality of blocks of support – such areas are now smoother and do not have unnecessary elements,
  • Improved the stability of top surfaces – such areas are now smoother and supported more effectively,
  • Improved bonding between the first layer and the rest of the print for models consisting of only several layers – reduced the risk of layer separation,
  • It is now possible to add supports for models printed in the Shell mode,
  • Added the Concentric infill mode in the Solid infill type. The Concentric infill consists of contours that form a concentric shape, improving the part’s durability,
  • It is now possible to display a single layer of a model in the Preview step. To do that, it is necessary to clear the checkbox All layers on the toolbar on the right.
