How do you display wireframe view in PrusaSlicer (to see the triangles making up the STL)?

As the title says, does PrusaSlicer have a wireframe view feature like Meshmixer and Simplify3D do? I want to be able to see the triangles/vertexes making up the STL files I import.

There is a feature, it's only available in the 2.4 beta, called "simplify model" it will show you the wire frame, but I doubt it's got the functionality your looking for.

 

Prusa slicer is far from being a 3D program.

 

Good Luck

Thanks! That's exactly what I wanted. Granted it's not the intention of the "simplify mesh" feature, but for just visualising the mesh like I wished to do it suffices perfectly. Great find!

I do want to warn you that in the Beta versions of the program the feature crashes the program pretty regularly, but in the Alfa versions it doesn't. 

 

Keep that in mind, good luck, glad I could help.

The crashing seems to be a non-issue in the Beta3 version 👍
