PrusaSlicer

Please Login to Comment

I've upgraded to UBUNTU 64 bit from 32 bit because I wanted a more recent version of Cura (3.1).

When I checked the software repository it had the same version of Cura but I noticed the PrusaSlicer was available so I installed it.
It definitely has more options than Cura did.
Though the TLM wasn't in its printer library, I set up a custom printer with the same start and end GCODE I used in Cura.

I was amazed at the improvement in my prints.

Is anyone else using PrusaSlicer?

What has your experience been?

I've been using PrusaSlicer for the last 4-6 months and have been very happy with it. Prints "just work", as long as my hotend temp sensor's wiring doesn't work itself loose.

Have you played with the "magic ratio" settings (0.1618 & 0.3236 layer heights)?

I've tried all sorts of settings and can't seem to get any consistency with my top surfaces.

This is my start GCODE.
