What is the Erode and Dilate?

Erode and dilate reduce or expand the volume of an object by scaling the coordinates.

Advantages of this feature

Erode Delite Effect

Sometimes when printing without a raft, you may notice the elephant’s foot. This means the first layer is slightly larger than the rest due to a higher cure time.

While printing objects for practical applications, it can pose a large problem due to physical properties of resin such as shrinkage after it becomes solid. By using this feature, you can resolve the issue.

Keep in mind the positive value represents the Dilate Areas and Erode Areas is defined by negative value.
