One way would be to ask for an STL file of the same object and support that,
then substitute the SLC for the STL and build.
It might work...

Subject: How to create support structure

I'm using 3D SYSTEMS' SLA-500 RP system.

I received a SLC file, which is contour file for a model not including
structure, from my client and tried to make support structure using MAESTRO
3Dlightyear, which are come with SLA RP System, for the model, but it is
Could any body tell me how I can create support structure from the slc file
of the
model and build them using SLA-500?

Information would be greatly appreciated.
