The below data outlines roughly the size of files that can be run on SliceIT. Colour files require additional processing and this requires more resources.



  1. All of the above data is based on single shell solid models.
  2. This data was generated using SliceIT 5.9 installed on a Windows 7 Professional PC, with Core i5 CPU and 8Gb of ram.
  3. SliceIT had a default allocation of 4Gb reserved.

  4. Increasing the amount of ram allotted, to SliceIT, will allow for larger files to be processed. Note however there is a phycial limit to the size of facets that can be printed and that can be seen. Refer to polygon_reduction_with_meshlab for information on the limitations on facet count and effects of facet reduction.
