You may have a look on our latest release update of VisCAM RP (Version 1.15)
available on our webiste at since today.

With VisCAM RP you could generate slice files with controlled variable slice
thicknesses from STL files (and several other 3D formats like VRML, 3D Studio,
DXF, PLY, VDA-FS and IGES). The slice files can be exported to CLI, SSL, SLC,
F&S, HP-GL or DXF files. Futhermore, BMP or JPG bitmap files with definable
resolution and size can be generated from each indiviudal viewed slice.

VisCAM RP is a complete software suite for all processing steps from CAD towards

Our base module VisCAM Solid Viewer is offered as freeware:
- view, verify, measure and communicate 3D Models (STL, 3DS, VRML, DXF, PLY and

Further VisCAM RP modules are available for:
- additional import of VDA-FS and IGES
- fixing and editing of 3D models
- colour handling and manipulation for 3D colour printing
- reduce and optimize the triangle number for 3D models
- scale, mirror, rotate, move and duplicate 3D models
- build preparation with part placement, nesting, cost calculations
- slice generation with controlled variable slice thicknesses
- hatch generation for many RP machines
- slice based support generation for stereolithography
- slice export for CLI, SLC, SSL, F&S, HP-GL, DXF

Please don't hesitate to contact us for more informations.

Best regards
