Alternate Slicer software

Post by mgay » Wed Feb 20, 2019 8:58 pm

I am new to UP. I am also very frustrated with the UP Studio software. I do not like having to be connected to a printer to make any changes to print temp, speed, etc. Is there an alternative like Cura or IdeaMaker?

Afaik only Simplify3D can generate compatible G-code, you'll find instructions here. If Cura or slic3r has gotten support for the, alternative, coordinate system used by Tiertime they'll also be able to generate G-code but last I checked that was not the case.

Rather than paying for Simplify3D I'm replacing the electronics..

Edit: in case you didn't find the forum post viewtopic.php?f=20&t=56013
