    Cool Cura Or Simplify3d?

    Other then the obvious Cura, Simplify3D and Slic3r which other slicers do you guys like?

    I kinda like Cura But seeing as I just bought simplify3D I hope I can get some pros cons between the two?

    Flashprint is actually pretty good.
    Has some cool image extrusion tools and part cutting tools.

    I use simplify3d.
    I like cura, but s3d definitely has the edge. Free slicer wise - flashprint is really coming into it's own these days.
    And the only one I've ever had succesful dual extrusion from is makerware desktop - old version.

    the cheapest and easiest to use is still SelfCAD for me which i do straight from Safari.

    Cura, Slic3r

    When I started Out I was using Cura 15.04.6. Well Still using Cura 15.04.6 It is still the easiest to configure and use to slice the models.
    However I still use Slic3r It has features that are not available in Cura. Though this is not the extent of the programs that I use and have tested.

    I have downloaded every Free Slicer from every manufacture to test them all, the other One I like is MatterControl it too has its assets.

    I'll have a look at matter control.
    I can't use cloud software, my internet in the workshop is just not fast or reliable enough.

    Hmm, dot net issue.
    I'll have a look later.

    On the subject of flashprint - it's easily the best for replicator clones. Even the dual extrusion is simple and effective.
