Prusa I3 Firmware & Drivers

Prusa have a slicer that looks a really good user friendly piece of software to use.

So this got me wondering would their firmware and drivers be compatible to use on a Hictop 3dp12 ? Slicer Info and Firmware

I am 3D Printing with Prusa at this minute to see if it works.
After a quick setup sliced the model exported to the SD card and inserted it into my 3DP11/12.
Both 3D Printers are now printing a Business card finalraptornormaltail.stl as I can use these for
Trick or Treat handouts.

The first Model Sliced failed!
The Second model I deturmined what was incorrectly configured and sliced and printed correctly.

So yes the Sliced will work.
I did not install anything other than the Prusa I3 Slicer

If you want my PrusaSlicer settings I will post.
Could Not Get OctoPrint to work with PrusaSlicer ... Will try again latter.

Which Prusa printer did you select in the setup Cliffe? There's quite a few to choose from!

Trying out Cura 4.3 this evening on draught setting its only taking about 20 minutes to print off the Cura robot! Have to say the printer is running much faster than my last print.
