The slicer included with my printers (ChituBox) has no STL editing capabilities. How to edit STL models?

    $\begingroup$ "Favorite" is opinion based. I do retouch STLs with Blender, Meshmixer and Fusion360 as I see fit $\endgroup$ – Trish Nov 21 '20 at 14:58

I think it depends on your use case.

As Bobt already commented, Meshmixer is a common tool for editing STLs. But also a lot of CAD-Tools should be able to import STLs. Then there is also of course Blender.

As you didn't specify what you want to use it for, I would guess you just want to do some quick fixes to the mesh. The tool I use is Meshmixer. It's pretty powerful, but I personally never really used a lot of it's capabilities.

    $\begingroup$ Blender is more powerful (just look at some of the blender questions), but not easy to use. $\endgroup$ – Trish Nov 21 '20 at 14:59
