    Cura 3.5 memory leak in Monitor

    I expect a growth of 3 - 4 times the size of the file.....not aprox. 10 times the file size. But even that growth is higher when still in use. No worries...I figured this would be helpful. I can provide a link to the files in question if need be for exact comparison.

    Cura 3.5 memory leak in Monitor

    I am not running the cam or any other thing but Cura and Cura Connect. System is i7-770K 4.2 Ghz 32GB Ram Nvidia GForce GTX 1080 Win 10 😠 Just opening Cura Just sitting there, growing little by little And growing Loading first file: file size 59,553 kb Just doing file settings During slice Finished slicing After sending file to Cura Connect Load second file: File size 48,262 kb Second file sliced After closing and reopening So, when using, it grows and grows. Even loading files that are not that large, it will jump astronomically comparative to the file loaded. Slicing I expect it to use resources as shown and not so bad. But it will continue to grow if it just sits there and will not return to original file usage, even on restart. It may be minimal, but it will keep creeping up if doing a lot of work. And, if you do not close it, it will keep getting really large. Maybe not a memory leak in strictest of terms, but it does not release its usage of resources fully and during ops, it will get really large and just start conflicting with all sorts of things left and right as it just consumes resources. It appears to, but it gains back that usage very quickly from this point on. Sorta like this guy:

    Cura 3.5 memory leak in Monitor

    @ahoeben is correct, I do not use octoprint. And maybe memory leak is not the correct term. But I notice it increases in CPU usage and will interfere with other programs if used over a period of time. I can at least track the CPU usage. I will see what else I can offer as well. When I use the program, its usage balloons and never goes back down even when reset or even rebooted. I will try to get around to just showing this usage with screenshots a bit later today. I also do not use the camera as the machines are right around me and I am not gone long enough to worry about it at any given time.

    Post your latest print!

    Been in design mode and doing weird things as I develop the work I want to do.

    That makes sense...but, as hardware evolves and so must the OS to capitalize it (or worse, as hardware demands the newer OS) one cannot stay at old OS levels forever. I mean, look at how many companies are still using NT.........

    Long Term Project that I can get to in between other things. This is nowhere near finished as it just takes so danged long to get through some of them. Still in mostly prototype phase. Like the floor is just to set things on at this point. The floor and walls are too big for one printing even on the S5 and will take over two weeks to print. The green stuff on his left shoulder is where I patched in a separate print of the arm that failed during printing. He was just a prototype at this stage and is not finished in the sculpture phase yet. The bookshelf needs to be reprinted, but all the books are printed and just need to be painted. The stack of books is fine too. Uncle Creepy from the Warren Magazines of the 60's and 70's. This is the failure of the arm during print. The Rolltop Desk came out great so that is one thing I can scratch off the list. The skull is separate as is the bird skull. But the arm is part of the print. Just gotta come up with more things to populate the shelves with. Just a more detailed shot of Uncle Creepy. There are other things printed, like another demon skull that serves as a book stop in the shelves and a couple of other things that will go on the walls. So, worth the time to get it right as I want this to be a really nice homage to the character and magazine. Sigh....here goes the old man trope..."They just do not make them like that anymore....."

    I think the question this brings up is that it must be evaluated how far back in OS history should one be expected to support. OS's constantly evolve as does the machinery. That being said, when will I get to use these new toys on my WIN95 machine? 😱 😆

    These are testing times...

    Let us see...slower dev releases that are very stable VS. quick and buggy. I would go with stable every day. So have I. But also much better. Unfortunately, the software industry as a whole is on this unwritten fast release cycle that requires 'recalls' (recent win 10 pull back due to files being deleted), Autodesk products requiring pathces for 6 months out of any given year because of their rush. The list goes on and it is endemic within the software industry as a whole. Say what you want, but before everybody got into a race to the bottom, software was a lot more stable. The current excuse is that there are so many lines of code blah, blah, blah. That would sorta imply the need for slowing down a bit and making things stable. It is also very important for the company to present as solid of a solution as possible when entering into a higher competitive arena. Agreed. That is a big bugaboo. Kinda makes for the slower and more solid case. Agreed, but as stated above, seems to be the way software is released these days and has been for years now. It is an issue across the board and not just Cura.
  11. Apparently, mine is even more weird if you did not get it 😂

    I found on my machines that if you load the filament too far, it will slam into the printhead at loading speed and not printing speed and will cause grinding. This is on my UM3E, and I caused an issue with a days long print that will require some serious post processing to fix it. Would this apply to the UM2+ machine as well? Kind of a false equivalency there. When a company puts forth a hardware and software solution towards big business, it is highly relevant.
  13. If the word 'attempt' is used, well then it failed.....😭 Edit: oh wait...it is a failed pasted link....huh...I wonder why...... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    🤣 I think we have all made some similar mistake 😁
