CHITUBOX Free 1.6.2&1.6.3 have been Released!



CHITUBOX team has released the new version of the CHITUBOX Free 1.6.2&1.6.3. Let's take a look at those updates. First, 4 more 3D printers have been added to the list of machines: CREALITY LD-002R, Phrozen Shuffle Lite, Phrozen Sonic and Phrozen Transform.

In terms of hardware compatibility, the display compatibility of 2K and 4K screens was added, and the support for different screen resolutions was improved. The compatibility of Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 Graphics card was fixed, and the bug that objects could not display under some Graphics cards introduced in the last version was fixed.


In the aspect of device support, the new release added support for 3Dconnexion under the Windows platform. Then it’ll be intuitive, easy, and accurate to carry out 3D controls in CHITUBOX. And you can experience the navigate mode that is not possible with standard mouse and keyboard.



Optimized the function of editing support


In terms of support structure, the new version optimized the function of support editing to provide a better user experience. After clicking the "edit support" button, click different support positions, and the TAB on the right will switch to the top, middle, bottom/raft according to the support position.



Added redo and undo functions in support mode


The new version added redo and undo functions in support mode: undo (Ctrl+Z) and redo (Ctrl+Y). After manually adding supports, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Z to undo the operation. If you want to cancel the undo operation, you can shortcut Ctrl+Y to do it again.



Added shortcut keys for switching support mode


The new version added shortcut keys for switching support mode, including: add (A), delete (D) and edit (E) so as to improve work efficiency by quickly operating the mouse switch.



Added setting for offset of build area


The build area may be limited by many factors. Sometimes it is necessary to set for offset of the build area. In the new version, the build area can be adjusted according to the actual situation, and the area of build platform in CHITUBOX will change with the adjustment.



Added separate export and reset function of resin parameters


In the new version, separate export and reset functions for resin parameters are added. In version 1.6.1, clicking the export button will export all resin parameters in the drop-down list, while the new version allows users to export a single resin parameter.

Version 1.6.1


In addition, for the misoperation, you can also click the "reset current profile" button to reset the print parameter.



In terms of multi-language support, the Spanish manual has been added and the German translation has been revised. As for the function correction, we have fixed the bug that data will be wrong after importing anti-aliasing cbddlp format, that the SVGX format is still printed as an entity after being hollowed-out, that the print is still solid after hollowing out in svgx format, and that the plugin cannot be used to export files normally after double-clicking stl to open the software. In addition, the new version improves the cancel, redo and undo functions during the process of hollowing and digging holes.
