Lychee Slicer new Major Release : Filament and Resin!

Filament_Resin

You’ve waited for it, and here is the big reveal! Here is our new major version of Lychee Slicer, internally numbered 5.0. We have major additions, introduced a month ago through multiple public betas, that now come as stable… but we added the support of filament 3D printers as a public beta! And that’s a big change!

But Lychee Slicer remains the same: one application, but for two types of 3D printers, still in Free and Pro, with a Premium option. However, Pro is now specific to each type of 3D printer.

Below are all our latest additions for the resin features, but let’s talk about the 3D filament printers.

If you wish to follow our development more closely and access our betas, we invite you to join our Discord server.
Our Discord community is very active and most of the team is present daily alongside our users.

LycheeSlicer_Interface

Filament 3D Printing

A dedicated interface, shared tools, and tools that are necessarily specific to the world of filament 3D printing. Lychee Slicer adapts to every 3D printing world.

There are hundreds of printers supported, and more to come. Is yours missing? Contact us!

We have integrated a concept of master printing profiles and child parameters to adapt to your objects to avoid tweaking the profiles as much as possible. And all this with graphics allows you to understand these parameters’ impact better.

Preview certain settings in real-time using the clipping bar, such as shell width modifications or infills, and visualize better the layers to be printed.

Easier 3D file preparation

Of course, the supports are not left out, with automatic or completely manual management. Pro users can go even further with the 3D manipulation Gizmo or the in-line supports.

Lychee Slicer filament is available as a Free version within Lychee Slicer resin, Pro or Free version. Add the Pro filament version to your Pro resin version, or have the filament version in Pro and the resin in Free. It’s à la carte!

Users of a Pro version have a discounted price for the other Pro version. Log in to your account to have the adapted prices.

As a reminder, this is a Public Beta version. As such, there are for sure some bugs, some are known to us, and we are working on these currently. However, there may also be some issues that we are unaware of. We always appreciate your continued testing of these beta releases to help us deliver a better final product.

Major features additions to Lychee Slicer

Oh, by the way, as we now have filament 3D printer supports,
some of these features are also part of both resin AND filament versions!

Suction Cup Detector

[Resin – Pro and Premium]

Have you ever said, “oh no, I think I forgot to add drain holes to my 3D print?” Well not anymore!
With this new feature, you can now detect if your print has suction cups that could lead to a print failure. Then, after adding holes to avoid this effect, you can reanalyze your model to ensure there won’t be any suction cups.

Planar Cut Tool

[Resin and Filament – Pro and Premium]

Wait, your 3D model is too big for your 3D printer? We’ve got your back!

With our new Planar Cut tool, you can define the position of the cutting plane then select the parts you want to split. Easy!

Split and Merge Tools

[Resin and Filament – Pro and Premium]

How many times have you needed to separate individual parts that are combined into a single model? Now separate them with a single click… Or if it’s the opposite and you want to merge multiple items into a single model, same process, a single click!

Better supports

More features have been added to give you more control over your support preparation

Inline_Supports

Inline Supports

[Resin and Filament – Pro and Premium]

Create supports on a line with simply a few clicks. A real time saver (dice creators will love that!)!

Supports_Presets

Support Presets

[Resin and Filament – Pro and Premium]

Create and save your own support presets. No need to create them every time!

Support_Painting_Angle

Support Painting with Max Angle

[Resin and Filament – Pro and Premium]

Define angles to ensure you don’t draw the sides or border of your model. This is helpful for bases or to prevent you from going around a border!

Better Anti-Aliasing

[Resin – Free, Pro and Premium]

Anti-Aliasing has been enhanced and now provides better results along the XY plane. Also it improves the Blur antialiasing option that can be a good option for clean surfaces on models that don’t have tiny details. 

Nothing changes on the interface. It’s simply a better result for your 3D print. It is only the beginning of these improvements, and there will be more in the future, this is just the first stage.

Other Improvements

To keep it short, we also made many other improvements in Lychee Slicer.

Resin_Filament_Printers

Resin and Filament

  •  Auto Arrange tool now better considers the shape of the model and is more effective. Magic features take advantage of this feature.
  •  Mirror tool is now in the World orientation and not anymore in the local one.
  • We sped up a lot of tools and processes, like the application startup, scene loading, auto arrange, supports bracing and even the copy tool that had been sped up quite a lot in the previous update.
Resin_Printer

Resin Only

  •  A lot of cleaning has been made in the Community Resin tool. We still have some cleaning to do, but we are in the process of providing you with a great tool to help you find the best parameters for your 3D printer and resin combo.
  •  CTB based 3D printers using the V4 format can change the LED power in the resin settings.

New resin printers added

You have been waiting for them, here is a list of the latest additions!

  • Anycubic Photon D2
  • Anycubic Photon Mono X2
  • Anycubic M3 Premium
  • Elegoo Saturn 8K
  • UniFormation GKtwo

And more to come in our next updates!

LycheeSlicer_Printers

Bug fixes

We have addressed many bugs and issues, too many to list however here is a list of the most important ones.

  •  3D printing time estimation with printers using two stages movements (CTB V4 and recent Anycubic printers)
  • Resin estimation included support resin consumption even if the scene didn’t have support. This has been fixed.
  • Supports were ignoring drain holes when located inside of a hollowed model.
  • Visual artifacts and slicing issues when having too many supports (and bracing) on top of each other.

As always, we’ve made multiple quality of life changes and smaller additions throughout the application. Here are a few more of the numerous improvements we’ve added to this version of Lychee Slicer. 

You can find the full changelog with all minor additions and bug fixes on our Downloads page.
