An In-depth Guide to the New Vlare Interface

In our latest Vlare release, we've revamped the “Vlare-style” interface to streamline your workflow.

We understand that this new interface might differ from what you're used to with Mango3D Lychee, Chitubox Slicer, or PrusaSlicer. Despite the changes, we're confident that this is a significant improvement over the previous version.

Introducing the New Vlare Interface

At the top of the interface, you'll find the following features:

  • Start
  • Prepare
  • Repair
  • Support
  • Measure
  • Setting


These features represent a natural workflow for any resin printer user, starting, appropriately, with 'Start'.

Start: File Management

This is where users can manage files by 'Open File'. Functions available here include:

  • Open File
  • Recent Files
  • New Scene
  • Scene Export
  • Section Export
  • Merge Export
  • Merge Export All
  • Example

Once a model is loaded, you can move on to 'Prepare'.

Prepare: Model Manipulation

In this section, you can manipulate the model’s position, hollow it out, drill holes, etc. Here are the available functions:

  • Mirror
  • Duplicate
  • On Plate
  • Separate
  • Hollow
  • Drill
  • Cutting
  • Emboss
  • Boolean
  • Arrange
  • Orientation
  • Moulding

Satisfied with your model's preparation? Then you can move on to 'Repair'.

Repair: Fixing Models

This section lets you repair the model’s bad meshes, close holes, etc. The functions available here are:

  • Repair Bad Edge
  • Repair Orientation
  • Remove Isolated Flat
  • Stitch Gap
  • Close Holes

Once the model's repair is completed, it's time to generate 'support' for the model.

Support: Model Support Generation

The support function is on the right side of our software interface. Here, users can generate automatic support, adjust support parameters, etc. For a complete explanation of the model support function, stay tuned for a detailed introduction in a later blog post.

Measure: Precise Measurements

When supporting the model, you may need to measure the distance between two points, or from a point to a plane, or between parallel planes. At this stage, you'll use the 'measurement' function. The functions available here are:

  • Collision Detection
  • Display Size
  • Two Point Distance
  • Point to Plane Distance
  • Parallel Plane Distance

Before or after starting, users usually check the 'Settings'.

Settings: Personalization and Software Information

Options such as language, model units, retrieval of old settings, and understanding of the current software version are all here. The functions available are:

  • Setting
  • Version Update
  • About
  • Feedback
  • Data Collection
