Using Slic3r with my UM2

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Unfortunately due to the lack of options in Cura I would like to go back to using Slic3r.

So my question is what do I have to change in to make it compatible?

Will copying the start/end code from Cura in Slic3r be enough?

If anyone would be kind enough to post these here, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks :)

Charles

Did you find a solution ever since ? I'm having the same problem (missing options, Zscar and infill every n layer mostly, and disabling the extra infill Cura adds sometime), and can't yet find a way to make Slic3r work with the UM, and I don't want to test thousands of faulty gcode trying to extrude without heating or smashing the head into one axis's limit ....

It's a shame, because except for these few options, I'd choose Cura over Slic3r every time otherwise !
