Ehmm... Slic3r has a plater built in, doesn't it?.. All I could imagine I could do with my plate can be done with slic3r.

Slic3r crashes randomly for me on both my macs. Both running latest versions of MacOS and slic3r.

Looks to me like a memory leak type issue.

You could try Cura I think. I believe Simplify3D now comes with either a 7 day free trial or a return policy, not sure which. Each application available has its own pros and cons.

If loading multiple STL's onto a platter though, have you tried exporting them as a new single STL prior to slicing? Is it possibly a bad model? Have you tried running them through NetFabb?

I have found this [github.com] but i am not having much luck getting it to run on 32 bit windows 10.
