Better to slice in native 3D program or 3rd party?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Better to slice in native 3D program or 3rd party?

A 3D philosophy question.


"Ambidextrous means it won't work either way and Universal means you'll need a Harley tool and a torch." - Me


It is rare for anything to be excellent at everything.  It would seem that Cura, Prusaslicer, and Simplify3d occupy the top of the heap of slicers.  Is it a coincidence that it's all they do?  Or is their excellence a product of their focus.


Give me a tool that is excellent at it's job.  I don't want a hammer that has a screwdriver for a peen.
