But based on the cost involved, how Slic3r has matured, and how few cons Slic3r has in comparisons to S3D’s cons, I’d have a hard time recommending S3D off the bat to someone new to this:  Give the free software a shot. Sin embargo, un programa de corte 3D de pago como Simplify3d tiene herramientas profesionales que nos hacen alzar la mirada hacia la tarjeta de crédito. Prusa Slicer is developed in house by Prusa 3D. DroneOn March 24, 2020, 4:28pm #3. I will have to export it when I get home later this evening. I do yes. I did look briefly at simplify3d – but with a slicer costing more that the printer and the slow updates, reported all over the web then i will give this a miss at the moment.  This is a major selling point, and brings much power and convenience when needed. You've successfully setup your printer and you've gone as far as calibrating it. I did most of my testing with the 3dBenchy model, trying to make sure both slicers had similar values. I'm just curios about everyone else's experience with slicers. Plus I like cura's experimental settings. They also had and still have a pretty good slicer toolpath generation when you don’t run into one of their bugs that kills your print. Send G-code directly to your printer with a single click of a button. We compare the top two open source slicers, focusing on their best features. Windows Drivers & Apps Package Full Installer, Mac Drivers & Apps Package Full Installer, Linux Drivers & Apps Package Full Installer, Full release log and the latest unstable builds on Github. I should be noted that all prints have had zero cleanup work done to them.  I think sometime in the next few months S3D should have another release if they follow years past, I definitively look forward to that will bring. I have never been a happy a camper with S3D and always liked Slic3r (kisslicer took forever to slice models but was more accurate for holes if you check the old nophead posts he proved it) better but the only thing that I still think S3D does better is the easily removable supports but outside of that I think it is like any other free slicer (good and bad). I know that the previewer is now very close to what S3D shows. I should note that I’ve found no other slicer that treats “processes” as well as S3D. HiDPI support – Correct scaling on high-resolution displays, Manipulation of multiple objects - group selection, Background processing – redesigned to work reliably, only those slicing steps that were invalidated by the user action will be re-sliced, Repairing models via Netfabb (only on Windows), Multi-language support: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Czech, Polish, Ukrainian, Korean, Chinese (Simplified). Slic3r or Cura?  There are so many facets to all of this, I wanted to get it in one place to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.  I’ve been told they’ll refund you if you don’t like it after you buy it. One reason for modifying the extrusion width has already been discussed: increasing first layer extrusion width in order to improve bed adhesion (see p.).  Yes, there are more, but these seem to be popular: After reviewing all of them, and for reasons listed below, I decided to investigate Slic3r Prusa Edition. This plugin has been successfully tested for the following cases: Linux: Slic3r’s stable versions 1.1.7 and 1.2.9 (tests done under a Raspberry Pi 2, but it should work for other Linux distributions).  It also allows you to make your own macro’s that show up in the UI.  It just means you need some other sender software like.  And you always need at least one: The power comes into play however, that you can assign them per mesh to print (if there are multiple being printed): You can even ‘group’ processes so as to link their similar parameters together, so changing one changes all others (see how this works. In Prusa Slicer you can adjust the extrusion multiplier, which is different from the flow rate that can be set in the printer. Powerful new feature allowing you to smoothly adjust the print resolution over height. I'm trying to give each slicer the best chance at success with some settings that I know works for my printer, and still trying to leave it as "stock" as possible. PrusaSlicer is an open-source, feature-rich, frequently updated tool that contains everything you need to export the perfect print files for your Original Prusa 3D printer. Even when I would post it on Youtube the YT creator said I shouldn’t use pirated software as that only happens in the pirated version.  The. 50?  And for the time I used them, they’ve all been great. That about says it all. PrusaSlicer is a feature-rich, frequently updated tool that contains everything you need to export the perfect print files for your Original Prusa 3D printer. Since the bencny wasn’t the best test for this, I down laded a “thin wall test” from Thingiverse, and ran them through both slicers.  But I still find the results interesting. You can do this manually in slicer. Paint custom supports directly on the model! S3D is dead because the devs (or is was it just one?) It is available on the Slic3r webpage. That's the question! This only matters if you have a Makerbot printer (like myself), but while you can export a Makerbot-flavored gcode, you’ll still need some external tool (like, It seems a bit awkward to save and load a ‘scene’. Again, I generated this gcode with a .6mm nozzle, but with an extrusion width of .72mm (20% over). One reason for modifying the extrusion width has already been discussed: increasing first layer extrusion width in order to improve bed adhesion (see p.). An area where S3D really shines, is how easy it allows you to place and generate your own support material (vertical columns). PrusaSlicer G-code Viewer is part of the PrusaSlicer installer package. Printed at 60mm/sec with active filament cooling, and slowing layers down for details like the smoke stacks. Older versions. Discussion. Slic3r only lets you modify the ‘print settings’ per model, you can’t adjust printer or filament settings, which would help greatly. Both slicers generated prints weighting 15g. Nevertheless, the Slic3r software’s Prusa Edition (now currently referred to simply as PrusaSlicer) is on the process of being developed fulltime by the Prusa team. PrusaSlicer (formerly known as Slic3r Prusa Edition or Slic3r PE) is our own in-house developed slicer software based on the open-source project Slic3r.  You can see, Printer communication & machine control panel. INTRODUCTION & DOWNLOAD. so is it just me or is their a setting i can change to lower slic3r times. As a programmer for over 30 years myself before I retired from the field I can see and I think S3D uses the Kisslicer engine and all of the ones that passed uses the slic3r engine. While Simplify 3D’s ‘processes’ are great, based on the fact that I use multiple ones so infrequently, I give Slic3r the win here, since it allows you to split you printer settings, print settings, and filament settings to separate presets, while Simply3D lumps them all into one. We run down the new features of Prusa Slicer 2.1 and Cura 4.3! Slic3r Prusa Edition 1.40 was just released recently and I would interested to see your impression of the changes. Gott im Himme It's completely free and open-source.  I should also note that a number of people abstained saying “I don’t see any difference”. You can note the nice on-screen legend that S3D provides, not to mention it has many other display modes. Posted by 8 months ago. Vanilla Slic3r (1.29) doesn’t have this option at all. A lightweight application, which you can use to quickly preview G-codes from all popular slicers. It is no longer called Slic3r PE (called Prusa Slicer now) but renamed as it had a face lift and has had a lot of work done on supports. PrusaSlicer is a feature-rich, frequently updated tool that contains everything you need to export the perfect print files for your Original Prusa 3D printer. Although obviously primarily meant to be used with Prusa printers, it is as extensible as the original Slic3r and does not lock the user into a certain printer vendor.  I didn’t tell them anything about how they were made other than “I’m comparing two different prints, what do you think is better?”. 5 comments . Not the end of the world, but since all these things are saved together, it means I need to have… a lot of processes for every speed, resolution, and filament type combo. WARNING. 3D printing is always about the quality versus the print time. Slic3r thin wall detection should automatically change the extrusion width to a preset “minimum” to create the thin walls. Other slicers :  I was considering mixing ideaMaker, Craftware and Cura into this test… but I’d probably never have finished it. Discussion. The ‘normal style’ support that other printers generate create more material, but also are less likely to fail\fall, and can often recover higher up. S3D’s genius was in coming out w/ a slicer giving the user the ability to create tailored processes that could be assigned to different user specified parts and height ranges. This iteration of the slic3r software has excellent capabilities viz-a-viz the original base version. Available … PrusaSlicer also supports multi material FFF printing with the Original Prusa MMU2S. Fact is I think it is 1 or 2 steps shy of being what S3D is for supports. In addition to translation\rotation\scale of parts on the build platter (either via a manip, of numeric entry), you can also specify dimensions, and it will scale to match. However, as Prusa Research was growing (very, very, very fast), we needed to be more flexible with the slicing software development. You can follow the development process on Github. Archived.  Everyone uses the software differently, and the things I find important (or not) could be polar opposite of someone else.  Great feature. yes. The legend in the preview shows a breakdown of the print time by feature. Slic3r. S3D wins here, providing more tools that are easier to use. This is a pro above, but I also found it to be a con:  There were issues on my 3dBenchy tests (mainly the flag-pole hole on the stern) where it would collapse thin walls, but not replace them, causing gaps to form in the walls. hoaschter March 24, 2020, 7:57am #2. Tech support & forums : S3D for the win, just a bigger community (or better communication platform) it seems.  A nice feature is you can toggle on/off ‘from built platform only’, so you can generate automatic supports for everything touching the bed, the later add in manual supports as needed elsewhere. I printed so many 3dBenchies for this comparison…. Want to try Prusa Slicer. Lovely but not the first time I have seen this done and I have said, and I will continue to say, that S3D is not worth the price charged.  I found this valuable when I had to modify the gcode output to support my RepRap Firmwares, by writing a custom pos-tprocesser in Python. I had a total of 57 people vote, and by 2:1, they chose the Slic3r version over S3D. We've reworked the UI and tried to expose all the power features while making the UI clear and simple to use at the same time. Setup. PrusaSlicer includes built-in firmware flasher for Original Prusa i3 printers. In combination with the seam hiding algorithm, the seam is often nearly invisible. Runs RepRapFirmware on 32-bit RADDS/Due electronic. In the Texture section, click on Load and import the Artillery Genius Bed Logo.png file. new Highres mesh toolpath simplification:  Slic3r clearly wins here, realizing this is an important aspect of any highres model. Slic3r Prusa Edition, which is perfectly tweaked for the MK2. Little curious which is more appropriate when using third party (non prusa) printers. EP.3 อธิบายข้อแตกต่างระหว่าง Slic3R Prusa Edition กับ โปรแกรม Prusa Slicer Ep.4 ขั้นตอนการเอาโมเดลเข้ามา ร่วมถึงการ ตัด ต่อ ยืด ย่อ ขยาย และการวางชิ้นงาน Slic3r vs Cura. Handbook 3.15 November 24, 2020 Download 3.15 (9MB) Changes in 3.15. FYI, the walls on the top start at .05mm (on the left), and end at 1.0mm (on the right). You can specify a ‘minimum detail resolution’ that will help it print higres mesh better. 280 micron z layer heights (‘medium res’ for a nozzle this size, set to full z-stepper steps). Même le MK2 a non seulement profité d'améliorations de ce qui était auparavant Slic3r Prusa Edition, et maintenant Prusa Slicer, mais il a également reçu des mises à jour de firmware, même récemment, qui ont ajouté de nouvelles fonctionnalités et améliorations. Setting storage:  Slic3r for the win here:  All if it’s printer, print, and filament settings are stored on desk in ini files, easily accessed by others, while S3D hides all the settings in the software itself. Beauty shot, side by side, S3D on the left, Slic3r on the right: Pretty darn close! I’ve used that technique, but I (and others) have found meshmixers ‘tree’ supports very hit & miss: If a lower trunk fails, a whole upper section will fail as well… more prone to print loss. In this example, I have a helix for print, and two cubes defining volumes for custom print settings: The Prusa edition has the option to connect directly to your printer over a serial/usb connection, but I’ve been unable to get it to work, up through version 1.34.1.24. Thanks to the strong community and core team of developers in Prusa Research we can continually add new functionality. - Prusa I3 rework HomeMade - Roxanne HomeMade - Prusa I2 Kit (à légué sa place à roxanne) - iTopie En cours (Conception par Skarab) Sur tout ça un extrudeur WadeL3K : [www.thingiverse.com] Reply Quote.  It’s not that Slic3r doesn’t have that, S3D’s just seems more active. I’ve been a 3d printing hobbyist for right around five years now:  I purchased my first printer, a Makerbot Replicator 1 (which I still own, still prints great) in March of 2012. Have you looked at Prusa’s latest? Thin wall detection : Even though Slic3r has some problems, the fact that it recognizes them at all (compared to S3d) is a win. 2. Background processing will be turned off from now on as it makes the Slic3r user interface very laggy. The latest 3DConnexion driver already installs c:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxWinCore64\Cfg\prusa-slicer.xml, however if you created this file manually, you are advised to remove it before starting the 3DConnexion driver update as the driver update will keep the old file. S3D has a major retraction bug in their previous V4.0.1 release (https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11633) and now their new V4.1 release has at least one major retraction and/or extrusion issue (https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11643) making their slicer unusable for my applications. If so, kudos to you But nevertheless, Slic3r Prusa Edition now includes Smooth Variable Layer Height and is bundled in 1.7.6 drivers with all the necessary settings for perfect prints. It took from 2.0 to 4.0 for the bridging issue to be finally be addressed (about 3 years) yet it sat on the forum not touched by the devs. Slic3r is the tool you need to convert a 3D model into printing instructions for your 3D printer.It cuts the model into horizontal slices (layers), generates toolpaths to fill them and calculates the amount of material to be extruded.The Slic3r project was born in 2011 within the RepRap community as an effort to provide the growing 3D printing technology with an open and flexible toolchain. Framemanager 96 Posté(e) Septembre 18, 2019. Sets the width of a gap between the model and supports. I mainly used Slic3r, then Slic3r-PE, and now Prusa Slicer. hide. Based on a general poll I posted, it looks like these slicers are out in the wild and commonly used.  No problem on my PC. 75 maybe and anything higher is just highway robbery especially considering how his business model works with opaqueness and when you grab an engine that I know had to have been free, or really is the Kisslicer source code, then I have to consider them at least scum. 1 year ago. Voilà le profil que j'utilise avec ma CR10 : PrusaSlicer.zip. They’re both great pieces of software, and they both a have many features in my ‘pro’ sections. Toolpath simplification of high res mesh: Lumping printer settings, print settings, and filament settings into the same preset/Process. So currently we are unable to place any orders with Prusa Research.  With it turned off, it had the exact same results as S3D. I know I’m biased about what I think are good/bad print results. And, they obviously paid a lot of attention to how tree supports are designed in tools like Meshmixer, because the PrusaSlicer interface neatly bypasses just about all of the pain points that I have when working with MM!
