Option 1: Using precompiled packages (recommended)

Click on your operating system to download the precompiled packages:


Note for Linux users: you need to install the freeglut package provided by your distro.


Option 2: Running from the source code

If you want to stay current and don't wait for updates to the binary packages, you can clone the project with Git and then install all dependencies by running these few commands:

$ git clone git://
$ cd Slic3r
$ sudo perl Build.PL
$ sudo perl Build.PL --gui

Note that you'll be using the development version which is more up-to-date but it's often more unstable. You should issue a "git pull" command very often. If you just want to use a stable version of Slic3r, download it by clicking on your operating system above.


You must first install the build-essentiallibgtk2.0-dev libwxgtk2.8-devlibwx-perl(this can be skipped, it just makes installation faster), and libmodule-build-perl packages. Should you have problems with the sudo perl Build.PL command, you can replace it with curl -L | perl - --sudo --installdeps . which should work a lot better on some Ubuntu systems having broken CPAN setups.
