Alternative Slicer without custom firmware
#1
As found buried in a thread here, there is another 3rd party slicer called Simplify3D.

I know NOTHING about it other than what is presented on their site.

Thought you all might find it interesting there are reports of it working with the STOCK FIRMWARE.

No, I do not know if it has the ability to bypass the filament counter. If I were to guess, I would think the answer is no.

Let us know if you try it or have any feedback.

I am running Simplify3D with stock as well. As of right now I use it just as a slicer since it can not communicate with the DaVinci custom firmware or not. There are several things that need to changed in S3D to get it working nicely with DaVinci. For instance S3D generates G0 Z g-code for Z-Axis movement, but the DaVinci for some reason will ignore it. If you replace all the G0 Z's with G1 Z's it works correctly.

Attached is the profile for Simplify3D, but please note that the Z-Axis offset is based on my current z-offset on the printer which is 250. Others may differ.

Rename the txt file to fff to import to S3D https://forum.voltivo.com/images/davinci.txt
