18 Giu Prusa Slicers 2.0
It has been full 3 years since we started our in-house development of Slic3r, later adding Prusa Edition (PE) to make less confusion with the naming. However, the programs are radically different now, plus, the community keeps using the Slic3r and Slic3r PE interchangeably, creating a lot of confusion, making this an ideal time for renaming the application. Tom Sanladerer using the horrible Slick-three-arrgh pronunciation had nothing to do with it, I promise! ?
As of right now, the PrusaSlicer in-house team has 7 people with Vojtech in the lead. Their first big achievement was getting rid of the Perl to speed up the development and build process. Thanks to this, you can already see more forks of the PE Slic3r version. In total, we spent roughly 21,440 man hours on the program, made 5769 commits and 61 releases!
So, this is the start of the new chapter of slicer development in Prusa Research! One of the first things we are bringing in PrusaSlicer 2.0.0 is a completely revamped UI and MSLA slicing, but that’s not all. Dig into the article to find out more details. ? But if you can’t wait, you can try the new PrusaSlicer right now – download it in the new Drivers & Apps package. You can also use this direct link to the file or download from Github.
UPDATE: Since the update caused some confusion around transferring profiles, we would like to assure you that PrusaSlicer DOES NOT delete Slic3r PE profiles.
