I believe Materialise has just launched a module for doing exactly this (called "OptiLOM" or similar?).

Your best bet is to contact Thomas Zwijsen at the Belgium HQ: +0032 16 39 66 66


Hope this helps

I used to own a 1015 plus, I don't believe there is any way to
pre-slice the models. As far as I know, you must import the stl file of
your part into the LOMslice software that controls the machine. The
LOMslice software controls the crosshatching of waste zones and also
offsets your geometry by the beam radius.

Dear list,
does anybody has experience in slicing LOM parts (especially for LOM
1015) with other software tools like Magics for instant?
