Hello,
I am trying to work through the RoboDK 3D printing example, but stumbling at the first hurdle.

When attempting to launch the 3D printing options from the CAM Options tab, I get an error: Slic3r project not found. Install Slic3r on: /home/jeanmarc/Software/RoboDK-v3.4.0/Other/Slic3r/

I have downloaded the files from https://dl.slic3r.org/dev/linux/ and extracted them to RoboDK-v3.4.0/Other/Slic3r/ but still I get the error. I tried both the zip download as well as the AppImage.

Does anyone have experience running Slic3r with RoboDk on Ubuntu, who could help fix this problem?

[Edit] It works with version 1.2.9, but not with the latest 1.3.0 version.

Many thanks,
Jean-Marc.

Hello,

I'm trying to use roboDK for a 3d printing project as well and I get the same problem but using windows. When I select an object in the 3d printing Project tab it says "Slic3r Project not found. Install Slic3r on: C:/RoboDK/Other/Slic3r/ from slic3r.org".

I did as you did I tried with version 1.2.9 and 1.3.0 but I still get the problem.
How did o solve the problem? Is it working with you now?

Thanks in advance,
João Sobral

The problem has been fixed for Windows:
https://robodk.com/download
https://robodk.com/whatsnew

With this new version, you can set up the default ini file yourself here:
C:/RoboDK/Other/Slic3r/robodk_slicer_config.ini
And RoboDK will use this file as default settings.

The Linux update should be available in 1 or 2 weeks.

With the previous version you can manually set up this robodk_slicer_config.ini file in the default temporary folder.
As long as you do not select Tools-Options-CAM-"Set default 3D print options", RoboDK will use that file for the Slic3r settings.

Another option would be to manually import the G-code into RoboDK and combine it with any Slicer software for 3D printing.
