We are working to get direct fabrication work flows from MeshUp integrated with as many hardware platforms as possible. If there is a target hardware platform desired - please let us hear from you which one.
The #1 slice format is SLC, which is a vector format. We are still compiling the exact model names and numbers of which printers will take vector slices in the SLC format, which we will output from MeshUp (in addition to CLI and image stacks).
Here is the rough state of companies/printer that can already take SLC and/or direct output from MeshUp:
* many of Objet printers such as the Eden and Connex line
* higher end 3D Systems printers such as the Viper or Projet
* all Solidscape printers
* we are currently working with Ultimater, MakerBot and other "home" 3D printers to deliver SLC and even G-code
In addition to SLC, we will also export CLI, (another vector slice format) and image stacks. Image stacks and CLI formats can be used by very few machines, which is particularly unfortunate in the case of image stacks because MeshUp could directly drive very complex fabrication on raster based machines such as those from Objet or EnvisionTEC.
Our CTO is also part of the ASTM and ISO standard bodies for Additive Manufacturing (AM) which has recently certified AMF (sometimes called STL2) and is actively working to get lower level formats certified that speak more directly to AM hardware.
