Outdated: MatterControl 2.0 no longer supports any slice engines other than MatterSlice. The option to choose slice engines has been removed.
- Third-party slicers (CuraEngine, Slic3r) are not available on all versions, including custom-branded OEM builds, and on the MatterControl Touch tablets (T7, T10). MatterSlice is the default slice engine, and is available in all versions of MatterControl.
- MatterSlice is the only slice engine available in MatterControl that is capable of producing multi-extrusion prints. Third-party slicers do not appear in the Slice Engine menu when Extruder Count is set to a value greater than 1.
- Third-party slicers are not available in MatterControl for Linux by default, but can be added by following the instructions here: Running on Linux: Using Other Slice Engines
