Laser Slicer v0.7

Update: I've uploaded a slightly updated script that now has a 'Separate files' option which will write out a separate SVG file for each slice.

I've updated my laser slicer script to version 0.7 with a number of changes. Main changes are:

  • The use of the Blender's bisect tool for quicker slicing. 
  • The script calculates whether each section of a slice is a loop or a line and writes out an SVG polygon or polyline accordingly.
  • Automatic removal of any non-manifold edges.
I have tested it on Suzanne (below), which is actually a very difficult mesh to slice perfectly, and it seems robust. File can be downloaded from the scripts page.
