Slic3r v1.0.0 RC1

Slic3r keeps on maturing and getting better with each revision.  Their current release, version 1 release candidate 1 has some great new features.

You can check out the full release notes and download your own copy HERE

A few major changes are:

  • built-in automatic STL repair
  • new support material rewritten from scratch
  • options to avoid starting loops on convex vertices and/or overhangs
  • improved infill patterns and bridge detection

I have already found the STL repair to be very good and saves me a trip round NetFabb and the new infill fills in small holes much better (I always use small gear from Greg’s Wade reloaded Extruder to test whether the infill works or not).

I used to get round this by adjusting the Advanced settings but now Slic3r does it all automatically 🙂 JOY!
