  • Mesh modification: rescale
  • Slicer: slice viewer, pre-set material settings, anti-aliasing
  • Recommended for dentistry and manufacturing.

Lesson 1: Installation

Download the Alpha 3D software and run the installer. Before installing, please check system requirements first.

Lesson 2: Setting up Alpha 3D

After you install Alpha 3D, the next step is to get your first print up-and-running. This section gives you the general information you need to start up your print, and links you to relevant sections in the rest of the manual that can give you further details.

Lesson 3: How to view in Alpha 3D

Alpha 3D contains several view controls located in the top-right of the interface. This section covers those controls, as well as other view functions with the mouse.

Lesson 4: Movement in Alpha3D

You can move objects in Alpha 3D from two different screens:
  1. Orientation : Rotate and turn an object to choose the ideal position for adding supports and printing.
  2. Layout : Move your part or nest multiple objects in the build area.

Lesson 5: Adding supports in Alpha 3D

Resin-based printers (DLP, SLA, or LCD) require that every part of the print is properly connected to the build platform during printing. Part that are not connected may drop off of the printer and fail. Alpha 3D allows you to automatically add supports and easily modify them to make the perfect print.
