In this article, I will cover the slicer software used to convert your 3D models
to instructions that your 3D printer can understand. I will primarily cover three
software packages: Slic3r, Creator, and Afinia.
As an added bonus, my MakerGear M2 arrived since last time, so I will give you
a quick peek at it before getting into the software.
