Introducing CHITUBOX V1.8.0 Beta! Faster Speed, More Features!



It's been a while since the last release of CHITUBOX Free 1.7.0. During this period, we've been collecting feedback from our users, conducting optimization, fixes and tests for our software. And now, we are happy to introduce the new version, CHITUBOX V1.8.0 Beta!

Optimized slicing and saving mechanisms, and largely increased slicing and sliced file saving speed;


Automatic island detection that can help you detect, locate and remove islands quickly;


Tolerance compensation to reduce your 3D printing tolerances and increase accuracy to satisfy your assembly requirements;

Multiple file selection: select or deselect multiple files with the Ctrl or Shift key + left mouse button.


Tooltips with detailed instructions and animated images for software UI items, enabling you to know quickly what the item can do.
