3D Slash is a really simple tool to create 3D models, available online or as a computer application. It has existed on the market for about one year, but now you can download its new version 2.0., with several interesting changes. Isit a soft for you and is it worth checking out?
Every beginner, who starts his adventure with 3D printing, sooner or later gets bored with ready models from the internet and wants to print somenting what he can create something on his own. If he has never have to reckon with software of this type, he can have a lot of frustrating problems at the beginning. 3D Slash is a perfect soft for this kind of users. Not only children, but also their grandparents should manage with it. For people, who picked up a smattering of creating of 3D models, this program can seem to be little-intuitive, but after some time, it can be quite useful.
It was established about one year ago and was very popular among both – professional and ordinary users, because of its ascetic interface and simplicity of operating. Version 2.0. causes, that creating of 3D models is easier that it was before. In the first version, you could have find an „Expert menu”, with settings designated for more advanced users, in current version, it was included in basic menu, and thanks to that, it’s easier to find it and use it, if needed. In this version you can mark according to the colour and the function of importing of .stl and obj. files was adjusted.
