WOW, is my only comment

Okay, maybe not the only comment but I can say it again. WOW. I have been trying to print out a couple of robot pieces for a couple of little boys of some friends of ours. I was using slic3r as it was the one everyone uses right? Well no more, the pieces I have been trying to print have some smaller bottoms than tops and some overhangs and for the life of me I could not get them to stick and stay put because of the small footprint. I tried the new version of slic3r with the raft and it was a joke. Anyway I had played around with Cura just a little before and never really got into it. I had used it to print out some flexi bracelets and that was about it. Soooo I said to myself. "Self why don't you try Cura for this tough print". Wow, it worked awesome. I set the raft on and away it went. Held perfectly and the print is awesome.

Daid for all the little quirks that still need to be worked out and minor bugs you are working on you have an awesome piece of software here. I just wanted to show my appreciation and say thanks. I will be using Cura for most if not all of my printing from now on.

Thanks again

    Ha, you've seen nothing yet. Wait till you see the next generation of Cura. Some people have beta-tested it for me, and the reactions are very positive.

    There will also be a small bugfix release out soon for the current version. Just to address some of the small kinks.

    Also, I think Slic3r never really lived up to the task. It's not as fast as advertised. It can crash or use up all memory, and it has lots of problems slicing unless your model is perfect.
