  • Repetier

  • Software for controlling RepRap style 3D-printer like Mendel, Darwin or Prusa mendel. Works with most firmware types. It is optimized to work with Repetier-Firmware Other working firmware is Sprinter, Teacup, Marlin and all compatible firmwares. It does not contain a slicer directly, rather it uses either Slic3r or Skeinforge.

  • KISSlicer

  • KISSlicer is a fast, easy-to-use, cross-platform program that takes 3D files (STL) and generates path information (G-code) for a 3D Printer. The FREE version has all the features needed for the hobbyist who uses a single-head machine. The PRO version essentially adds multi-head and multi-model printing.

  • Voxelizer

  • Personal fabrication is easy with Voxelizer - dedicated software for 3d printing with ZMoprh. Apart from being a ‘host’ software to control your machine, it is able to generate gcodes from three dimensional geometry in completely new way. Namely, instead of using triangle based geometry (such as those in STL and OBJ files), it converts it to voxels – making the object consist of small ‘boxes’ or ‘atoms’. This allows entire new way of thinking about conversion from virtual model to physical object. »

  • ReplicatorG

  • This is the software that will drive your MakerBot Replicator, Thing-O-Matic, CupCake CNC, RepRap machine, or generic CNC machine. You can give it a GCode or STL file to process, and it takes it from there. It's cross platform, easily installed, and is based on the familiar Arduino / Processing environments. ReplicatorG is used by thousands of MakerBot Operators, and has printed tens of thousands of objects and counting.

  • SuperSkein

  • SuperSkein is a first-order model slicer that runs in Processing. It's pretty basic still, but since it's object oriented and in Processing (which could be quickly ported to C) it should be easy for the community to hack and improve.
