The GUI looks like someone puked blue on your screen
But seeing the slice path results, I see some very distinct differences between Slic3r Skeinforge and KISSlicer. Which could provide some better results on thin parts.
Closed source is a big downer for me. I'll stick with SkeinPyPy (for obvious reasons)
Hey, I'm one of the beta testers for KISSlicer. I also should be receiving my Ultimaker today or tomorrow. Once I have it I'll be doing some testing on the Ultimaker with KISS.
I can say it's a damn good slicer, it's extremely fast, and has some very nice features. And Jonathan is constantly improving it and adding new features based on community recommendations.
From my experience using it on both a BFB 3D Touch and my RepRap (using Marlin Firmware) I can say it produces much better prints than Slic3r did or than Axon (Skeinforge) for BFB. It's faster than Slic3r by a fair bit, and WAY faster than Axon/skeinforge. (like seconds instead of hours kind of faster). One thing I prefer it for is that it's far better at compensating for extrusion width (I believe that's "Stretch" on skeinforge). Something that Slic3r has done a poor job of for me, and Axon has had issues with as well (ie: if I design a hole to be 3mm diameter, KISS prints it 3mm diameter)
Anyway, I definitely think it's worth a look, I'm happy with it. (though I've yet to use netfabb to see how it compares there).
I'll post more once I've got the Ultimaker printing with it.
