Introduction

Slic3r is a new STL-to-GCODE translator. It has the following goals:

  • speed
  • easy configuration
  • provide both a graphic interface and a complete command line one
  • open development (hosted on Github to allow for forks, pull request and contributions)
  • new features
  • easy installation (no dependencies required)

Availability

Slic3r is available in precompiled packages for MacOS X, Windows and Linux.
It's also possible to git clone and run Slic3r from there to stay current; a single script is provided to automatically install all dependencies via CPAN.
For more information check its Homepage (Download).

Tech Details

Slic3r is written in Perl! Check out the source code over at GitHub.
