i tried all of these integrations over time and still the only real way : create a mesh from the object and export it as stl to re-import into any slicer prog. I use standard mesh as thisgave best results, also i have better results with create mesh -> export,l than save as STL directly.
Today´s Slicers have far to much parameters and possibilities as that it would make sense to integrate one of them . Many params and options need visual inspection inside the slicer anyway.
Quite agree but maybe it could be interesting to have the ability of importing slicing parameters from a slicer (Cura or Slic3r ...) and use it in a standard way.
From my hobbyist point of view I only use 3 to 4 profile, and only play with density or layer height.
so even if as hobbyist I don't care about switching from one software to another, if we imagine a professional situation, it could be interesting to use only freecad.
I often use freeCAD to define personal support for bridges, for example. now 0.17 I use different bodies for my part and for manufacturing help (support or bed contact)
so imagining a WB that can know which body is the part and which one is a support (or what ever) could be interesting.
I definitely need to learn python
