  1. Will there be an option in future updates to change the build volume/shape of Cura? We are currently running the previous version of Cura for our 18" delta and it works most of the time for doing big, complex slices but we are looking to push it much harder and further with bigger objects (1 meter diameter x 1 meter tall max). We want to help with the community development on pushing Cura to its limits on such massive build volumes.
  2. This is the hardware I am running. http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Y50-Laptop-Computer-Generation/dp/B00K3F4M1U/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1411281021&sr=1-1&keywords=lenovo+y510p While tracking all 8 cores i never went above 20% processing usage.
  3. Somehow it managed to slice it this time when I ran it but Python ran up to 367.6 MB. The previous times were along the same lines. If it helps I can run it a few more times and record how much memory python uses when it stalls out compared to when it completes.
  4. I have been having a similar issue. Are you using the support material setting? For some reason I can slice large, complex objects but I cannot slice them with any of the support material settings on.
  5. I am working on slicing a rather large complex object. It is an ODST helmet from the Halo series of games. The link to it can be seen below. I am attempting to print this helmet as a demo piece to show what my machine can do. I am attempting to run it at 279mm tall on a very large delta printer. When I attempt to use the following settings for the object it almost completes but stalls out at about 90%. I can still use Cura but slicing has stopped. I am able to complete the slicing process when I use no Support but I cannot complete slicing when I use Support Touching Build Plate. Cura Version: 14.07 Layer height 0.1mm Infill: 0% Wall thickness 2.0mm Support: Touching Buildplate No bottom layer (object is open on the underside) I am doing the slicing on a rather robust gaming machine so processing and graphics power is not an issue. I know that the slice has stalled out because I follow its progress using the Slicing bar and by watching my the fluctuations in my CPU from task manager. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! Link to helmet: http://www.bluerealmstudios.com/2009/09/15/legacy-odst-helmet/
  6. Hello, I am working on a large scale machine (in excess of 1 meter cubed) that would use a nozzle with a larger diameter head to allow for thicker layers to decrease print time on large builds. I am considering getting a Prusanozzle and boring out the tip to 1 mm diameter. I would like to get some feedback from others on if they feel this would work? Also, I feel I may need a larger (longer) chamber with a second heater to allow for a larger volume of material to be used. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts in this as well? If it comes to it I have a design in mind that may work with two custom heater blocks. I would run it as though I am using dual extrusion. With a second head that is never used to help control the head within cura. Thank you for your time and input!
