PrusaSlicer

Summary

This is the third beta release of PrusaSlicer 2.6.0, which fixes bugs and introduces a few improvements compared to beta2. See the release logs of 2.6.0-alpha2, 2.6.0-alpha3, 2.6.0-alpha4, 2.6.0-alpha5, 2.6.0-alpha6, 2.6.0-beta1, and 2.6.0-beta2 for the complete list of changes with respect to 2.5.2.

To let you enjoy the beta without worries, the beta builds save their profiles into the PrusaSlicer-beta directory, so you may use the beta side by side with the current release without ruining your production configuration. When you first run the beta, it will search for all configurations produced by alpha or final versions and offer to create a copy of the latest one.

Improvements with respect to 2.6.0-beta2

  • The improvement of PlaceholderParser includes the addition of the 'is_nil' function, displaying error messages for custom G-codes, and preventing issues related to disabled filament override values. #10578
  • The new improvement allows PrusaSlicer to recognize and accept projects with a .zip extension as 3mf projects.
  • The user now has the option to specify the extruder to be used for printing perimeters of the wipe tower, which enhances the stability of the wipe tower in multi-material printing. (See Print Settings / Multiple Extruders / Wipe tower extruder)
  • Added a warning to alert users when the bed temperature varies significantly. This situation can occur when multiple objects of different materials are placed on the bed.

Bugs fixed with respect to 2.6.0-beta2

  • Linux specific: Fixed a crash that occurred after a specific manipulation in the right panel.
  • Fixed an issue that selecting and arranging specific objects outside of the bed (on the virtual bed), resulted in overlapping with other existing objects.
  • macOS specific: The context menu did not appear when the user right-clicks on selected objects in the object menu. #10576
  • Fix of crash when selecting multiple objects and using "Set number of instances" in the context menu. #10617
  • Fixed issue where travel toolpaths on the top layer were incorrect, causing some models to appear black when travels were enabled in the preview.
  • Negative volumes became disorganized and assigned to the wrong subparts of the object when cut with selection was used. The fix involves merging solid part components (excluding Connectors) and setting the merged volume name to match the object name. #10631
  • Fixed an issue where the 'Slice Now' button remained inactive in SLA mode after creating a shape, adding a negative volume, and moving it within the shape.
  • The Undo/Redo functionality did not work correctly with the Variable Layer Height bar.
  • Fixed crash in Organic supports #10605
  • The selected filament color in the Filament menu did not transfer to the main screen. #10636
  • The issue in PrusaLink and Octoprint has been fixed, where the Host in the header is set to the original hostname instead of the resolved IP address after resolving domain name. #9734
