  • ideaMaker Review is live

    I just finished my review of ideaMaker, and I am very impressed. It combines some of the best features of Cua and Prusaslicer with some unique capabilities. Raise3d clearly built this software for professional industrial users. When combined with the current free Raise3d Cloud, it is a unique, high-value solution.

    The weakest feature in this slicer is the preview mode. Cura, PrusaSlicer, and Simplify3d all provide much better 3d rendering. Watch the video, try the slicer (it's free) and let me know what you think.

    Thank you for this video Irv. I will definitely download IdeaMaker.

      Great video Irv. I looked at Idamaker awhile back but it just didn't do anything for me. I see you found some interesting things that it can do that other don't offer. May take another look now that I have a better understanding after watching your video.

        Another slicer for my tired old brain to learn. It looks very interesting if I had an IDEX printer.

          Hi Irv
          In your ideaMaker Review you mention printer profiles and filament profiles but you do not explain how to create or use them!
          On the JGM video on using ideamaker they show profiles but do not have them both to download.
          Help

            I used the profile in the JG Maker Facebook group with ideaMaker and then tuned it a bit. Once I am happy with it I will post something.

            I have been using Ideamaker for several months now and like it a lot. Here is a cup holder for older e34 BMWs. The texture function works great on cylindrical objects. Textures also hide many of printers short comings

              Great idea to use texture to hide layer lines and seams.

                Yes, it is. I have gone texture crazy in Ideamaker and Blender

              I like that texture. It does seem to hide layer lines. Do I have to learn Ideamaker to get that texture on my prints or is there a way to import it to Prusa my preferred slicer.

                The textures are in Ideamaker only and do not save to an exported STL file. Blender is the only program I have worked with that I can apply textures to 3d models. Larger learning curve for Blender for me.

                This is a birdhouse I am working on in Blender. Ideamaker will not texture the top or bottom unless you turn it 45 Degrees then the textures are messed up the pattern. Well crap no pictures in the comments

                I believe Irv Shapiro mentioned in his review that IdeaMaker can apply some textures to prints.

              hmmm, import it to Prusa.... hmmmm, seems unlikely.

                Also Irv mentions the texture will be convex. You can have the texture convex or concave.
