I started use prusaslicer. It has a lot of nice features and was pretty easy to setup for a custom printer. I also like the way it handles settings. Much more straightforward and comprehensible.tenaja wrote: ↑Thu Apr 08, 2021 8:47 amI hope so, too, but even if they do, we probably won't get to use it. They are headed down the saas rabbit hole targeting monthly fees from farms. There's no incentive to cater to us, since they already got our money.
Just look at the number of new forum users per month from, arbitrarily, 2017, vs now. Worse, and more telling, is the number of posts--we are switching to Cura.
They clearly screwed up in not collecting at least a coffee or two from us every year. So, now, they are scrambling to keep their code producing revenue.
As others have said, in some ways, Cura had surpassed s3d... But there's still a few areas that s3d is better, and still that minute chance that we won't be abandoned...
It does still fall short in a few areas, but in those few cases, I just go back to S3D to handle it.
I hope version 5 ships, but if they go to a pay to play model, I will be gone faster than it takes to click the x at the upper right hand corner of your browser.
