Repetier is a “free to use” software package available with a donation (optional). It is one of the big names in 3D printing software and for good reason.
This program is not a real Slicer. But it is a command and calibration program for 3D printers, as well as Printerface’s Printrun.
In fact, by connecting your printer to the computer through this indispensable software you can implement the commands of the printer. In addition, you can change its settings directly by clicking on the monitor of your computer.
Repetier is reviewed with the Slicers software because it can also be used for that purpose. It can use three different slicer engines: Slic3r, CuraEngine, and Skeinforge.
The program intends to obtain perfect prints in any material the printer is able to handle. Including PLA, ABS, PETG, Nylon, and even chocolate and metal.
Look low cost and reliable filaments, tons of colors:
Can be purchased with 2 formulas, host and server. Repetier host can support up to 16 extruders with different types of filaments and can display the result with different colors in the 3D view, and it is free. While, with Repetier Server, a printer can be controlled from anywhere with a PC, phone or tablet. It also has webcam support for monitoring prints and can drive multiple printers simultaneously. If you want an advanced program, easy to use and with the interface capable of processing and tracking multiple prints on different printers this could be the program for you.
