BUILD Slicer

  1. While it is not enforced, we strongly recommend you to AVOID the use of SPACES for both the source directory and the build directory. We mean it.

After configuration, start the build process in the Slicer-SuperBuild directory

Linux or MacOSX (Makefile) Windows (Visual Studio)

Start a terminal.

$ cd ~/Projects/Slicer-SuperBuild

$ make -j<NUMBEROFCORES>

Start Windows Explorer. Need help?

  1. Open Slicer-SuperBuild\Slicer.sln in Visual Studio
  2. Select build configuration. Usually Release of Debug
  3. Select menu Project -> Build Solution

If you make local changes to Slicer, open the solution file located in the directory Slicer-SuperBuild/Slicer-build instead. You should then be able to either build all projects or just a specific one.
