Slic3r

  • Slic3r is an open-source, free slicing software that ships with printer software packages like Repetier-Host.
  • Slic3r configurations can be exported individually (called a config) or as an entire library/set (called a bundle). Please be clear which one you are sharing!
  • Slic3r settings files have an .ini extension for both individual configurations and bundles. Be careful-  you can’t select individual settings from a bundle, just the whole package.
  • Documentation on Slic3r can be found here. Source code can be found here!
