    Just what the title says, was using MatterControl successfully, then it said there was a new version and did I want to upgrade. Naturally I was stupid and said yes.

    Now every STL file I load has a "Slicing Error" when using Slic3r but Cura works just fine.

    What happened?

    You are using MatterControl.

    That is the problem.

    Get Cura or go directly to Slic3r as your program to use, don't use a buggy managment software like MatterControl to mimic Slic3r if you liked how a Slic3r mimic worked.

    A word of advice going forward. If everything is working, update NOTHING.
    Update when (and only when) you have a specific reason.
