    Simplify3D

    I decided to take the leap and buy Simplify3D. It did not have a profile for RapidLite so I manually entered the printing parameters according to what I was using on Cura. It is a very powerful slicer with many nice features but I'm not sure its worth the high price. I really like the live update feature that graphically displays your print being made.

    It does work with the RapidLite if anyone was interested in buying it.

    Looks interesting but $140 is a lot when compared to what we paid for our RL200's.
    Strange to compare it only with Makerbot software.

    p.s. please keep us updated with your thoughts and comparisons

    Repetier also displays live update of whats being printed.

    What does it do vs Repetier that it is better then?

    Faster slicing?

    Been playing around with Simplify3D

    I like it its way faster Slic3r by along way It allows repairing of models you can create models from images

    It a good program with lots of extra's and Very User friendly.

    I can see why they bundle it with other printers I combines 3 Apps in 1

    Except for the 140$ its a great app I understand why you brought it

    synthius have you printed any thing with it yet would be interested in the results

    cheers

    RE the review its the only one I found with a quick search

    I have printed many things already.
    It is harder to configure the settings because there is a lot more to set and there isn't information for our printer details.
    But I am happier to use it than Cura.
