Repetier
■ This open-source slicer software supports
three different slicing engines; Slic3r,
CuraEngine, and Skeinforge.
■ Repetier can also handle up to 16 extruders
with different filament types and colors
simultaneously, and you can visualize your
end result before printing.
■ There is a lot of customization and a lot of
tinkering involved, making Repetier ideal
for more advanced users.
■ You also get remote access to your printers
with Repetier host.
Slic3r
■ Open-source software includes real-time incremental
slicing,

■ 3D preview, and more.

■ It is one of the most widely used 3D printing software


tools.

■ The incremental real-time slicing ensures that when


you change a setting, the slicing doesn’t need to start
from scratch.

■ Only the G-code for affected parts is recalculated. The


end result is a fast, flexible, and precise slicing
program.
Simplyfy3D
■ Extremely powerful premium slicing tool
that helps you drastically improve the
quality of 3D prints.
■ Not only does Simplify3D slice your CAD
into layers, it also corrects any problems
with your models and allows you to
preview the end result, helping to further
identify any other issues.
■ Choice is yours……go with free version or
premium
CraftWare
■ Another hassle-free slicer suitable
for beginners.
■ The free software efficiently
converts your 3D digital model into
the G-code for 3D printing.
■ There is also a really good
visualizer with this software that
enables you to identify any possible
areas of the model that need
modifying.
KISSlicer
■ This slicing software does its job
well, although the user interface is
somewhat basic.

■ Still, if you just need a slicer that


delivers great results, use KISSlicer.

■ The basic version is for single-head


machines only. You’ll need a PRO
version for multi-head machines.
Netfabb

■ Quite apart from being just a slicer program, NetFabb allows you to identify any last issues with
your STL files before they get to the slicing stage.

■ This powerful software is available in a professional edition, which users need to now download as
a free trial, even if they only require the basic slicing features.

KISSlicer_Setting up a device

This menu is used to display some popup guides


□ Show path color key – when MATERIAL display option is
chosen, you may want to enable a popup color guide
□ Show mesh error key – It pop up automatically when loading
new parts and error are detected (default behaviour, but you can
disable it clicking the option box at the bottom of the popup)
