Hello, I have been working on integrating slic3r into Openscad. I would like to be able to call slic3r with the stl path in the command line arguments, and have slic3r open the gui, not just slice from the command line. The main reason for the gui would be for the octoprint support, to streamline the printing process.
Unfortunatly, I cannot find a way to do this.


As an example, Cura works like this.

@alexrj Load files into the GUI when supplying them as command line arguments…
… along with the --gui switch. #2644

Hello, done. You need to supply the --gui switch along with file path(s). No --gui switch performs command line slicing as usual instead of launching the GUI.
