Printing software on 2017?
August 14, 2017 12:08AM
Hi all,

I've been off the grid for quite some time rgarding 3d printing and it's time to start again.

I'm looking for all I need to start from zero and I noticed that Pronterface hasn't been updated for more than 2 years now.

Is it still reliable? is there any good free alternative to print from the computer? I'm working with a Prusa i3 and OSX


Thanks a lot in advance,

Pronterface is still very reliable, lot of people don't like it because is not all glitzy and glamorous, which is the same reason I like it

the github shows recent activity [github.com]

The pre made binaries at [kliment.kapsi.fi] are somewhat out of date... I would go with the code from the guthub, if you can.


Cura is also quite popular [ultimaker.com] It not just for ultimaker

Also take a look at Repetier host/firmware has a nice 'glitzy' interface and i find it very reliable.
