                                Lychee_Minor_Update Lychee Slicer 5.1.8

                                Release date: 2023-03-15

                                    This new version of Lychee Slicer is in the continuity of our previous beta versions, with a lot of work done on improving the performance and overall stability of the application. As a result, it does not bring any new features, but you should see significant changes in terms of speed and responsiveness.

                                    As a reminder, our new Anti Aliasing introduced in version 5.0 improves a lot the surface finishing of your resin 3D prints. However, it requires more resources. By default, the previous anti-aliasing is enabled, then please activate the HD mode to get the updated and high-quality anti-aliasing.

                                    Friendly reminder: the auto-update will be enabled very soon; meanwhile, download our latest installer from the Download section of our website.

                                    Reminder: The resin slicer is stable, and the Filament slicer is a Public beta.

                                                                                        • [Pro Resin & Filament] Planar Cut tool, to cut 3D models in multiple parts, including selecting the cut-outs.
                                                                                        • [Pro Resin & Filament] Inline Support creation tool. Add multiple supports aligned along a line in two clicks.
                                                                                        • [Pro Resin & Filament] Split and Merge tools: Separate the 3D model shells into multiple 3D objects or merge a multiselection of objects into a single mesh.
                                                                                        • [Pro Resin] Suction Cup detector: Detects 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.
                                                                                        • [Pro Resin] Support Presets: create and save your own support presets. No need to create them every time!
                                                                                        • [Pro Resin] Support Painting with max angle: define angles to ensure you don’t draw the sides or border of your model. This is helpful for bases or preventing you from crossing a border.
                                                                                        • [Pro / Premium / Free Resin] Anti-Aliasing has been enhanced and provides better results along the XY plane. Also it improves the Blur antialiasing option, which can be a good option for clean surfaces on models that don’t have tiny details. Name has been updated, Blur is now “Smooth Surfaces” and is the one by default. The former anti-aliasing has been renamed to “Sharpen Details”.

                                                                                            Optimizations_Icone improvements and optimizations

                                                                                            • [Resin/Filament] The mirror tool is now in the World orientation and not anymore in the local one.
                                                                                            • [Resin/Filament] We speed 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] A lot of cleaning has been done 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.
                                                                                            • [Resin] CTB-based 3D printers using the V4 format can change the LED power in the resin settings.
