PrusaSlicer Plater Tab
These notes are based on my experiences with the Prusa i3 Mk3 and Artillery/Evnovo Sidewinder X1 printers. If you are using a different printer, please verify the hardware details are similar.
Complete plater tab documentation
Plater tab is where you’ll add, manipulate and remove parts for printing. From this page you can select for print, filament and printer profiles. On initial startup, you’re presented with an empty bed and a default set of profile selections.
There are multiple methods of adding parts to a print. The simples is simply to use drag & drop to place one or more parts on the bed. You can also use the
File->Import->Import STL/OBJ/AMF/3MF... menu option to browse for appropriate files.
Once you’ve added one or more parts, they’re automatically placed on the bed.
If one or more parts are overlapping, you can automatically arrange parts by:
Arrangeicon at the top of the screen (4th from left).
Akey to automatically arrange all parts.
[Shift]+Akey combination to automatically arrange only selected parts.
Deleting individual parts
Deleting all parts
Copying individual parts
Pasting individual parts
Adding part instances
Variable layer height
Laying parts flat on the print surface
