SLC is a 2½-dimension file describing slices (contours) through a solid model typically for rapid prototyping applications such as stereolithography. It consists of successive cross-section polylines taken at ascending Z intervals (normal).
SLC Export Options
The distance between the slices or layers of curves that your final output will contain. The distance should be based on the slice thickness of your final output device.
The angle that determines how smooth the polylines of the slice curves will be. When the number is small you will get a smooth final output but it will take more time to export.
The curves for each slice are generated by intersecting the object mesh with a plane. Consequently, the Angle between polyline segments data is no longer used. The final output is based on the number of polygons chosen for the mesh in the Polygon Mesh Options dialog. The greater the number of polygons, the longer it will take to export and the smoother the final result.
Saves the current settings and turns off the dialog display.
