Slicers

Post by Jhonno »

What slicers are we all using? Cura 4.6.1 here.. Bottled installing the latest after Social Media reported prints degrading, although, is it a case of needing calibration again/better..

I am currently using PrusaSlicer but I think I will have a look around once my printer is back running 😂

Looking to change because you don't like it, or because you can?

Just because I can. I have to finetue my printer anyways so if there is a slicer that works better for me now (or has better features now) I can more easily switch now than later.

That makes sense..

The good thing about Cura is the constant evolution and updates.. Just sometimes the execution isn't there.

What other Slicers are there?

Cura
Prusa
Slic3r
Simplify3D

I only use S3D and have great print quality and can do everything I need.
I've tried Cura once and I'll be right back

Switched from Cura to PrusaSlicer about a year ago and never looked back. The whole interface just seems way more logical. Very active development too with regular updates.

Ideamaker. Hard to understand on some point, but it's the fastest slicer i know and for me (for the moment) the best.

I am giving Prusa Slicer a pop this evening.. I am liking it so far. I like the custom G-Code for a filament section, so I can set pressure advance from within the Slicer filament profile.

When I used Marlin I pasted the gcode snippet for fine tuning the printer at the top of sliced gcode file using the custom gcode feature.
