  1. First stop to familiarize myself after upgrading from Cxi 7.5.1 to 8 are these first videos, especially the last Export Options video. I can bring my project to a 3D printer directly from the Strata Design app now. This is fantastic.

    I’m glad to have made this purchase upgrade. A fantastic app, Strata Design 3D CX 8, is. ????
