Prusa started a few years ago, the Open Source Slicer "SLIC3R" to develop to be able to deliver a good slip together with their printers. Although Prusa Slicer is mainly from a paid developer team, he is still completely open source and charged for cooperation.
In addition to freedom, which is won by an open source product, this also has the side effect that more and more corporate printers with prusa slicer can be used. The possibilities and assistants to integrate any printer and even finished supplied profiles for external printers are in version 2.3 has been greatly expanded.
The Prusa Slicer also supports Resin printer, but mainly but the SL1 of Prusa, as the manufacturers like to cook their own soup and print files are hardly compatible. Since the Slicing for Resin Printer in Prusa Slicer works well, there is an efforts of the community to open the Prusa Slicer for other resin printers in this field for other resin printers. At the moment, tools are already available, such as Z.B. The UVTools, which allows conversion to the required format. A luckless workflow directly from the slicer is not possible yet.
This article is about the particularly for makers of interesting new features. Information about the basic skills of the Prusa Slicers and a comparison to the competitors provides our make slicer test.
Perhaps the most important and most important innovation in 2.3 are the "Palm" (Paint on Supports, Stutz Structures). For all the freedoms who made us makers the 3D printers, a fact is still law: a 3D printer can not print in the air, it must always be the printing plate or part of the already printed model as the basis. If this is not the case, you can sometimes make the printer unload from filament or avoid the need for nozzle (support) through special design knits. Otherwise you have to print the neck that must be removed after completion. The previous automatic methods for generating stutz structures are only influenced in low-mabment and like to produce too much or wrongly placed nozzles.

An experienced maker or the designer of the object to be printed but best, where truly stutz structures are needed. Here are the Permanitations to Help: You can mark with the mouse the places that need support – or where no nozzles should be generated – and looks in the slicer the result before printing. Attention: The icon for the columns will be in the Slicer only from Level "Expanded" display!
Thus, one has a whole arsenal of functions for generating stutz structures available. You can be in the project as .MF3 file is saved, so you can customize or pass away.
Bugel options in the settings at Infill, Bugeln
The Bugel (Ironing) ensures smooth surfaces on shallow, parallel flat to the printing platform. So far, the smoothest flat of an expression was always the lowest layer adhering to the printed bed. If you wanted other parallel flats in the like good, so you either had to grind or align the workplace differently. The Bugel (Ironing) in Prusa Slicer 2.3 leads to similarly good surfaces by applying a very duny layer of molten filament in another step and finely smoothed this layer with the printing line. This only works only on flats that lie parallel to the print bed – but saves in many cases that you have to grind this flat spater.
The middle plaque was printed without batches / ironing.
Ironing significantly increases the printing time and works best in name badges, logos, badges, boxes, lids and similar. In figures and other, rather organic forms, it has little to no impact.
Monoton (Isch) It infill
Monotonic Infill sounds boring, but is an innovation that we have been inevitable for a long time. As already written above, the most serious flat of a 3D printing was almost always the first directly on the printed bed – until the slicer then decides suddenly to catch up with the fulin of this flat, to fuel a small part somewhere else and then restart again at the first finish. Result is then a uneven waste, especially with complicated objects with many breads. The resulting starting points and direction channels in the finish can be very clear.
Normal GradeLine Infill and Monotonic Infill
The new function now calculates the path of the printhead better and tries to fuel flats in one pass in the same direction – as far as it is geometrically possible. This creates a much more accusable surface.
