Slic3r 0.8.1/0.8.2 is out!

Slic3r is one of several applications that takes a 3D model and converts it to a set of instruction for a 3D printer.

Slic3r 0.8.1 has been released at http://slic3r.org/

Looks like some interesting new features
  • randomize starting points across layers -- preventing a bump when the starting/ending point is the same.
  • automatically adding perimeters as needed -- I've had problems with printing the tops of spheres.
  • improved surface quality

Looking forward to giving it a try!

Update: make that Slic3r 0.8.2
