slic3r i like it allot

i have been trying the latest version of slic3r out, and so far i  like it allot, but i have found it seems to have a few shortcoming, it is very easy to use, and from what i can tell it works very well on allot of things, but one thing that it seems to miss is if your print has a flat part that is not on the top, it dose not seem to finish it off like it should it only seems to do 1 layer where i would like it to do 2-3 of solid fill.

on this print it worked great

you can see it a little on this print where the layers are not the best.

but for the most part i really like slic3r, it is very fast and very easy to use. i will need to spend a little more time with it to see if there is not an option that i am missing for that only shortcoming i have with it.

i think we may have our old house sold, and we are starting to look for a new one, so i am not looking forward to setting up a new shop again, but i hope i can get off a carpet floor and onto something that is not so bad for static.
