Convert a .solus to a .stl

Postby LarsZ » Mon Aug 20, 2018 2:30 pm

I've been testing my Solus printer with a test file called 'playground test.solus' which is a very use-full test structure (riddles with small details!). However, now I want to compare the results I can obtain with my solus printer with a another printer, which can't read .solus files. Is there anyway to convert a .solus file to a .stl?

Don't think so. A solus file is just the saved support and slicing info.

This would be a huge feature that would bring a lot of value to the files I sell. As things are currently, I love the software more than the machine and I'd like to be able to provide my customers with pre supported stls that they can print at home.

Just put the supports in when you finish the model. M9 has the ability to do 3d printing supports. There is other software out there that will do the same.

Matrix Ver9 Might also be in MatrixGold Some of the newer cad programs have this now. I'm sure there is also plug-in for rhino.
