On July 12 we have released Pantheon Slicer BETA, and on October 23 Pantheon Slicer 2.6.1
Reasons we forked our own slicer:
Automatic updates for our printers profiles
no more deleting and re-importing profiles
whenever print profiles are updated you will get an in-app notification
New Functionality in development
Slicing a part is how we get our 3D model into a code our printer can run. Slicing is equivalent to CAM or programming in the CNC world. The slicer takes parts and “slices” them into layers that the printer prints. The slicer generates the exact path the nozzle follows. Things like wall thickness, top and bottom thickness, speed, etc. are all configured in the slicer.
Once installation finishes you can launch the application. The config wizard can be skipped with the “Finish” button as there are no options to configure.
Download the .zip above, unpack it and copy the PantheonSlicer.app file into your Applications folder.
You can now launch the application. The config wizard can be skipped with the “Finish” button as there are no options to configure.
After you install Pantheon Slicer for the first time, close and restart the application to receive the new slicer update.
Config Update notification will pop up at the bottom of the window after restarting.
Go to Configuration → Configuration Wizard. Once in the wizard, go to the “Filaments” section and select all, then Finish. This will associate the profiles and filaments in the main GUI.
Importing a Part
Pantheon Slicer is compatible with the following file formats: .STL, .OBJ, .3MF, .AMF, .ZIP.AMF, .XML, .STEP, .STP
You can either drag and drop files directly into the Pantheon Slicer window or use the add button highlighted below.
Orienting a part
You will need to rotate the part onto a face to print it, your part may import in the correct orientation already but this step is often necessary
The Easiest way to do this is to use the place-on-face tool. Click your model, then click the place on face button. Faces will appear on your part, select the one you want contacting the bed and the object will rotate into place
The red box highlights the settings dropdown
Updating Slicer Settings:
Pantheon Slicer checks for settings updates automatically at startup. If updates are available a message will be shown on screen in the bottom-right corner of the plating area.
