What slicer should i use? We’re glad you asked, today we’re going to break down our top picks for 3D printing slicers in 2022. You may have just gotten your 3D printer or wanting to change slicers but wondering which to pick. There's so many options, but how do you tell the good from the bad? Here at Ultimate, we understand this struggle so that’s why we made a list of our top picks for you
First let's breakdown what makes a good slicer:
- Viewing ability: good software should offer the ability to turn and zoom to any point of your 3D model flawlessly and fast.
- STL repair: good 3D slicer software won’t deny the ability to slice. If there are broken areas in your 3D model, it should bring them to your attention and repair them at the click of a button.
- Usability: How easy or hard a slicer is to use, does it cater to beginners or experts or even better, both. Is the user interface easy to understand without complex menus that you can get lost in like a maze?
