I'm just getting into bioprinting having done quite a bit of normal (PLA and ABS) 3D printing. Both Cura and Slic3r are very inefficient in the amount of movement whilst 'not' printing (i'm using a syringe based extrusion of cell laden hydrogel), what this results in is lines in the print where there don't need to be and over-extrusion because it's a syringe and it's not really on/off.
