Re: Anyone tried Slic3r?

Inspired by the python code ssstraub used to get Simplify3D print to work with Cube, i started hacking away with Slic3r. After ~5h of coding, got my own script to process Slic3rs output to proper format that Cube undestands :).
Just got the first print done, but there are some issues that need to be addressed, currently the extrusion amounts for different paths (solids, perimeters) do not match -> perimeters are fine, but base and top get too little material. Also there's some areas where extruder is not turned off during moves so i need to check those. All doable, just needs time.

For those interested testing work in progress stuff, the  Python script is here: https://github.com/spegelius/CubePostprocessor

My Slic3r config bundle is attached to this port
