Slicing software is EXTREMELY limited… or is just me…

I’m finding UNIZ slicing software to be very, very, very limited. Compared to Chitubox is like little baby. Since there is no way to modify the support structure, like adding a “elephant foot” (cone like shape to anchor better the support  to the build plate) I would at least hope for a raft. No raft though! There is also no way to re-position the support poles. There is no way to manually place the supports, or to move them. And there is no way to define different width of the “support branches” (like a branch of a tree).

So, am I missing something or this is it????? Oh, one good point – the inclination of the support tree is a VERY good idea!

But still, this s/w is lacking some serious functionality that even free s/w have!!!

Right, the slicer is so simple and stupid. Hope UNIZ will abandon their own development soon as meeting their slicer makes experience so bad. It is great printer, but software sucks. This is the reason they will loose many customers at the poing of presales.

BTW, the update to UNIZ Desktop 2 from 1.6 is…is, well still lacking but keep going! I noticed that you finally added a Remove button in the Supports feature. 

Now I’m waiting for version 5 :-)… I bet, there will be a proper hollowing and hole making feature!

The ability to hollow or add infill is fundamental to 3D printing, why this is not included in the feature set really limits this printer. Either add the functionality or allow other slicers like Lychee or ChituBox to natively export to zcode.

Even basic use of the slicing software is hit or miss, I have massive amounts of failures that I do not experience with Lychee/Anycubic machines. 

Hugely disappointed in the IBEE unit as it stands.
