When you think of slicers for FDM 3D printing – especially free slicers – you may think of Cura, slic3r, or prusa slicer. Mattercontrol has many fans and many people pay for simple3d. However, there are many other slicers, including the one [teachingtech] has switched to: Super slicer. You can see his video comments below.
Of course, just as prusa slicer is a branch of slic3r, superslicer is also a branch of prusa software. According to the project’s home page, the slicer does everything prusa does, but adds custom calibration testing, ironing, better thin-wall support, and other functions related to filling and top surface. The software runs on windows, Linux, or Mac.
[teachingtech] has been using simple3d purchased for many years. However, he had a drive failure and had to rebuild his profile anyway, so he tried some other options. He doesn’t like Kula’s interface. He used slic3r before. He seems to be more familiar with slic3r because he is the mother of prusaslice and the grandmother of superslice.
Superslicer can upload to a WiFi printer and has some padding and support options that are not available in simple3d. The video shows some intelligent features that can be improved by providing appropriate support under the top floor and overhang.
We like people to support feilaifeng. Built in calibration printing helps find the correct retraction and other parameters for printers and materials. If you haven’t used prusa slicer yet and want to know what it looks like, you can read our views on it a few years ago.
