In this post, let us discuss topics together such as what is a slicer, and how the type A530 uses the dedicated, free slicer 'Weaver3 Studio'.


1. What is a 'Slicer'?

A slicer is a software that plays one of the most important roles in the 3D printing process.

The slicer enables the 3D printer to recognize the 3D model file, and literally slices the 3D model layer-by-layer.

In other words, the slicer is converting 3D model files such as .STL, .OBJ, etc. into machine language that the 3D printer can read and work on.

This converted machine language is called g-code, it contains information about each layer's nozzle position, nozzle speed, material injection volume, and more.

The fabWeaver team has developed a dedicated slicer called 'Weaver3 Studio', that is optimized for the type A530 and will guarantee the best quality in  the 3D printing job. 


2. User friendly Weaver3 Studio slicer for all level of users

The weaver3 Studio was developed for easy use, even for beginners, through intuitive and user-friendly UX/UI.

Weaver3 Studio already has optimized profile value for the type A530, so the user can create an optimized output file by importing a file with one simple click.

In the past, creating 3D model file for 3D printing had to be done in a separate CAD program, and file would be extracted with an extension such as .STL or .OBJ.

And if such 3D model file had any error, then separate modification for the job is required.

However, the Weaver3 Studio has a 'CAD-to-Print' feature, so the user can directly import files from any 3rd party CAD programs and convert into an STL file.

Also the user can use mesh correction feature to correct simple errors on the STL file with ease, which will support the user in proceeding to their the printing job without any concerns.


3. Advanced features for professionals

On the Weaver3 Studio's custom setting mode, the user can find many detailed values for their customizable printing job, and define it for the user's preference.

With this mode, the Weaver3 Studio allows 3D printing professional users to enjoy the detailed setting and set optimized value for various 3D printing circumstances.

The Weaver3 Studio supports many different features and settings that can be used, providing beginners with comfort, while allowing the professional's to geek out.

With Weaver3 Studio, the user can build efficient 3D printing workflow for high quality outputs.
