Agreed there is a learning curve but I am glad that we are starting to see choices in the software that we use.

If the layers aren't bonding I would try a temperature increase of the hotend, 5 or 10 degrees. Are you using a layer fan?

How many layers are the perimeter on each? was there infill on the torso?

If so, there may be enough residual heat on the torso, that when the next layer is extruded it can bond easier.

Still lobbing out guesses...

Did you have these problems with Slic3r or are the problems related to the Matter Control software?
