SLA Printing???

Thu Jun 27, 2019 6:46 pm

While Chitubox works well I've found that Simplify3D always works better than the competition..

Any chance of supporting SLA printers such as the Photon and Photon S?

TIA

Thanks for the request! We've seen a few more request threads related to DLP and SLA printers in the past. Not a ton of interest has been expressed. I do know that our support team has worked with some users in the past on supporting laser printers such as the Moai. If you happen to have one of those printers, please shoot our support team an email. Otherwise, please continue to express your interest here.

Also, if you could note the specific resin based printer you'd like supported that would be helpful for our developers. (like the OP did already. Thank you OP!)

I would be interested in being able to use S3D with my Moai in addition to my dreamer. I honestly want to move away from using my dreamer all together but the slicing program for the Moai is so limited and not as capable. I often revert to settling for lesser quality prints simply due to the ease of use of the slicer.

It already works with the Moai. That printer just turns on the laser whenever it encounters E-values in the gcode, so you don't even need to do the other changes mentioned above. Just set the extrusion width to the spot size of the laser and maybe adjust the speeds and scripts.
Our support team has experience helping users with profiles for the Moai. If you run into issues you should give them a shout! https://www.simplify3d.com/contact-us/
