If you want to develop you have to experiment. And with this motto we want to present you the experimental version of our slicer software – Voxelizer. This is what you can expect.

Mind you, this is an experimental version, which means some of the features are still in development and the software may not be 100% stable. If you’re new to Voxelizer and ZMorph 3D printers, we recommend using Voxelizer 2 instead.

Voxelizer Experimental does not overwrite Voxelizer 2. It’s installed as a separate software.

What’s New?

Yes, what exactly is new in Voxelizer experimental version? We mainly focused on the CNC workflow and completely reinvented it. We’re now presenting some of the highlights and new advanced features.

Files support

  • STEP engineering file format is now supported.
  • Planes and edges of the model may now be selected to define milling operations.
  • Available functionalities adapt based on the loaded file format:
    • All functionalities are available for STEP files,
    • 3D operations are available for regular mesh files (STL etc.),
    • 2D operations are available for flat vector files (DXF etc.).
  • Milling projects may now be saved as Voxelizer projects.

New generation engine

  • The CNC milling workflow has been reworked with professional users in mind.
  • The generation engine now outputs much more precise instructions as it uses the input directly, without an intermediate voxel step.
  • Path generation algorithms have undergone many optimizations.
  • It’s now possible to change tools within one file/process.
  • It’s now possible to define a local coordinate system.

Presets and configuration

  • Greater configurability of the milling parameters.
  • Errors in entered parameters are automatically detected and communicated to the user.
  • Parameters are now explained with graphical tooltips.
