I started using Prusa Slicer a lot more in the past few weeks with great results so i thought i make it look better. For each of my printers i added a custom build plate.
This improves looks and it also makes it easier to see what printer i am using. Each build plate has the name of the printer engraved on the front.
How to Install the Custom Build Plate in Prusa Slicer
- Download the correct build plate for your printer (links below)
- Open Prusa Slicer.
- Navigate to Printer Settings -> General.
- On the Bed Shape section, click on the Set button.
- In the Model section, click on Load and import the printer.stl file.
- Click OK.
After installing the custom build plate, it will look like this:
You can install the build plate in other slicers but the process is more convoluted. I previously explained the steps on how to install this on Simplify 3D in this article. The steps are identical, except for the build plate names.
I hope these custom build plates help you to improve the looks of your slicer. If you can’t find a custom build plate for your printer, drop me a comment below, and i will make one from you.
