SL Tools (sltools.exe) is a utility included in SIMION 8.0 and previously included in the SIMION SL Toolkit. It is intended for viewing, manipulating, and converting to/from PA files. Conversions include importing/exporting PAs to/from CAD (STL), bitmap, and ASCII text formats:
- Convert 3D CAD (STL) files from your favorite CAD package to/from 3D SIMION PA files.
- Convert 2D bitmap images to/from 2D SIMION PA files.
- Extract/Import potential and potential gradient (i.e. field) maps as ASCII text files to/from refined PA files.
- Quickly view PA and STL files from Windows Explorer (OpenGL viewer).
