Slic3r Prusa Edition, a renewed application to use with our 3D printer

Slic3r Prusa Edition

One of the best known brands or names in the world of 3D Printing is the name «Prusa». This popularity is due among other things to the fact that the RepRap project mostly use this printer model to build and launch custom 3D printers. Even the famous Spanish company BQ uses this family of 3D printers to launch their new models.

And one thing that many do not know is that the creator of this device has a company or foundation that is in charge of launching canonical models that guide the development of future versions of this family of 3D printers. This company has recently released a version of their software called Slic3r Prusa Edition.

Slic3r Prusa Edition is a program that is installed on our computer and that is used to be able to use our 3D printer with our computer. But this time around, the Slic3R update goes further.

Slic3r Prusa Edition is intended for use with Prusa 3D printers

During this year Prusa has had new models with new functions and Slic3r Prusa Edition is in charge of being able to use these novelties. Thus, one of the new features of Slic3r Prusa Edition is the filling. This filling allows us to create solid parts without having to fill in little by little with the part creation program. It also has a new feature that allows improve the surface of the parts, removing those air bubbles or irregularities in the pieces.

Another of the novelties of Slic3r Prusa Edition is the cut of the piece. We make this cut in a virtual way that allows us to see parts of the piece to be printed. An interesting utility for those who need to manipulate the piece created or to be printed. You can get the new software through your github repository where you will find all the versions and more information about this software. I think this program is interesting but there are other programs that are compatible with Prusa and other types of 3D printers.
