Settings from now in own repo (because of sandbox issues with macOS Catalina) Will probably be replaced by PrusaSlicer in the long term.

My Slic3r Settings

Some of these settings are quite specific to my RepRap Prusa i3 (MK1) printer, because it wasn't built from a standard kit. See my website for a little build blog.


Clone this repository to the settings file directory of Slic3r.

  • macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/Slic3r
  • Linux: TODO
  • Windows: TODO

Previously I cloned the repository to my documents folder and then symlinked ~/Library/Application Support/Slic3r to it. But this does not work any more with macOS Catalina, because the sandbox prevents the slicer to access the user's documents.
