Slicing server status

What is the current status of doing the slicing on server (or even cloud)? Currently I'm on a Mac and it cannot connect (https://github.com/repetier/Repetier-Host-Mac/issues/71) like the other clients directly. I've seen some mentions of this feature coming, and it is a ticked box for the paid version (which I'd happily pay for) but I find no mention in the docs of this.

  • It is one of the next things we want, but slicers are tricky and we want to have a good integration, so i can not make a time estimate yet.
  • Oh damn, I was hoping for this, since the experience is less ideal currently with the Mac host. But yeah I understand there could be a lot of functionality to integrate, ea. moving models around. Although at it's simplest, it could just be using slic3r as a command line program and passing in a configuration file ?(http://manual.slic3r.org/advanced/command-line)
  • You also need to enter config in our interface because the slicers have no remote web interface to integrate. Plus we want some special postprocessings, so it is a good deal of work.
