A few minutes ago I was rolling into my fb timeline and found this post about a comparison made between the most common slicers:
Slic3r – http://slic3r.org/
Cura – https://ultimaker.com/en/products/
Simplify3D – https://www.simplify3d.com/
Craftware – https://craftunique.com/craftware
To evaluate these slicers, Angus (the guy in the video) choose these topics:
– STL Loading Speed
– Gcode Preview
– Print Preview(Time and quantity of materials used)
– Advanced Features
– Cost efficiency
He also made an evaluation of the print results from each Gcode based on the list below.
– Support Material
– Thin Walls
– Thin Columns
– Small Holes
– Layer Accuracy
– Text Legibility
– Top and Bottom Finish
