Raise3D Announces ideaMaker 4.2.0 Beta, Which Enables Seamless Integration with ideaMaker Library and Introduces Boolean Operations

Aug 24, 2021

August 24, 2021. Rotterdam – Raise3D, the global provider of additive manufacturing solutions for SMEs and LSEs, announces ideaMaker 4.2.0 Beta, an update that connects ideaMaker with ideaMaker Library even further, and introduces Boolean operations, to offer a better and seamless user experience.

The Library, which has been live since May 2020, is an online platform that enables users to download optimised slicing profiles for Raise3D and third-party 3D printers and filaments, and different types of textures. It offers tools such as the profile generator, available to all users, that quickly and easily generates profiles in four simple steps.

With ideaMaker 4.2.0 Beta, users will be able to access the Library directly from ideaMaker and select, with a single click, the slicing profile that they wish to use, instead of downloading it from the Library and uploading it to ideaMaker as had to be done before.

The new Library functions can be found in ideaMaker under the windows: Configuration Wizard, and Printer Settings.

New Features:

Boolean Operations: This new feature allows users to create intersections, unions, or subtractions of 3D models, and is now available directly in ideaMaker, the first popular and free FFF slicing software to have it. It will bring a better user experience as it enables experimentation without having to switch to 3D modeling software. Users can enable the feature via the Boolean button from the Tool Bar.
