Lychee Slicer is now compatible with 3D printers that use filament.
The Lychee Slicer from Mango 3D is now compatible with both resin and filament 3D printers.
The announcement represents a relatively significant shift in the consumer space of filament 3D printing, which previously was dominated by Ultimaker Cura and PrusaSlicer.
Lychee Slicer’s recent version 5.0 update introduced the feature,
along with support for over 480 3D printer models and the promise of ongoing updates that will add new or improve existing profiles.
It’s available as a public beta alongside the slicer’s stable resin offering, so anyone can try it out.
Prior slicer users can update their access.
The Mango 3D website has it available for download for Windows, MacOS, and Linux.
The slice’s new abilities were revealed in a live stream,
which we’ve embedded below at the appropriate timestamp.
“Master Profile” and “Override Settings” modes allow users to easily tweak settings for specific projects. At the same time, two “automatic support solutions” enable simple support structure generation and modification.
Meanwhile, the “Banana for Scale” mode “places you in an environment that helps you better understand your model’s] size,”
while the “Layer Thickness Preview” mode displays individual print layers intuitively.
For those familiar with Cura and PrusaSlicer,
the user interface is a departure,
with Lychee emphasizing illustrations and visual representations of the parts of the print you affect with your settings changes.
Lychee Slicer is available in free and “pro” versions for FDM and resin 3D printers,
with additional features, modes, and advanced tools.
