    When you say large and complex how large are we talking? I tried simplify3d and it actually bombed out on me :/ the mesh was only about 2.5million polys, which blender eats for breakfast, but yah no luck, might try it on another pc.

    Roxy,

    'One thing the Slicer programs could do is slice a couple of layers and start sending that G-Code to the printer. The printing takes enough time it would seem the Slicer could be doing that in parallel'

    This is a great idea. I noticed that on my printer the slicing speed increased dramatically when I bought a higher spec computer. This in turn increased the quality of the prints as my solidoodle has to remain connected to the laptop during the print.
