We recommend Autodesk Meshmixer 3.1 for Moai user for its versatility and features. You could also use Print Studio for support generation with modification to build volume:

To set it up:

For Autodesk Print Studio, after installation, please run the program and select your printer as Ember.  Then exit the program.

Go to C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Local\Autodesk\Print Studio\printDB   xxxx is your Windows user name

*You may have to unhide those directories first in the folder option before you see them. 

Find the file: printerTypes.json

Use a text editor to edit the file, go to line 20 there and change the three numbers in line 21, 22, 23 to this

        "bed_size": [





Save and exit

And it is ready for Moai user.

You could also use this steps for other SLA printers.


A few notes about Print Studio:

- Regarding workflow, it is the most intuitive and specifically built for SLA printer. This is its best points 

- You can use it to add support but not for slicing for Moai

- Print Studio tends to over add support. We use overhang angle = 0 in Meshmixer. 

- I wish it has more features like add base, hollowing, drain holes, plane cut, etc.  It would make it more complete and seriously think about recommending it over Meshmixer

- Open it up to other SLA printer and make this tutorial outdated :D
