Voxelizer 2.0

Released 06.07.2018

Building on an intensive Beta phase, we're happy to deliver the first non-beta version of Voxelizer 2.

Scene models alignment

The mechanism for importing aligned models has been reworked. To align models, import multiple models at the same time and agree to the prompt asking if they should be aligned. The models may be later disaligned by clicking on a number button on the upper right of the model miniature.

Separated objects detection

It is now also possible to split models composed of multiple meshes in the scene view by clicking the number button on the bottom right of the model miniature.

Support: weak (hanging) areas reinforcement

Other features and changes:

  • Better filament and time prediction
  • Fix for communication with printer via ethernet

Version 1.7.1

Released 18.4.2018

A few bugfixes for the 1.7.0 version

  • If your 'My Documents' are located in a non-standard location, such as network drive, OneDrive or iCloud, Voxelizer will now store configuration in a different location (in AppData folder)
  • Additional reporting for graphics problems
  • Keyboard shortcuts listing in Help -> Keyboard shortcut list
  • Minor bug fixes

Version 1.7.0

Released 4.4.2018

Highlights of this release:

  • Lattice support
  • Sphere selection ('q' key plus left mouse click on voxel objet)
  • Reworked rendering engine

Other features and changes:

  • Export voxel object to STL
  • Engrave filter
  • Improved tree support
  • Edit object dimensions in Scene editor

  • Removed ZMorph 2.0S from the Choose Printer wizard. If you own a ZMorph 2.0S you can choose 2.0SX instead, but note that we're not actively testing Voxelizer with ZMorphs older then 2.0SX
  • The CNC and the Laser toolhead for the ZMorph 2.0SX printer are temporarily removed from the Choose toolhead wizard until the new firmware is released. If you want to use the laser or the CNC toolhead on your 2.0SX printer with the new Voxelizer choose the VX printer. Full compatibility is not guaranteed.
