This page is intended to provide links to places where Slicer Users can get help.


The most effective way to get help from the community is through the 3D Slicer community page on Discourse. Categories:

  • Support: usage related questions
  • Development: programming related questions

Mailing List (deprecated)

This used to be the common way to get help from the community before migrating to Discourse. Questions about using 3D Slicer should be posted to the slicer-users mailing list.

For programming related questions, the slicer-devel mailing list needs to be used.
