Cura slow in Finder, Slice failure? accidental Gcode view

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Three things..


I noticed since tha last upgrade for Cura the OS dialogs have gotten realy slow. Takes several seconds before the content of a folder is displayed.. Other Apps dont even need 0.01 second to show all folder content.

I recently got an SSD and everything getting slower again realy bugs me.


I sliced the Pressurepen.stl multiple times to compare how the gcode filled the walls.

So i was adjusting the Layercounter to see beween some layers.

After that i changed some (infill) parameters and resliced. (didnt set the Layercounter back to 0)

Now after the slice finished i got my gcode, but it was somehow animated... layers kept blend in, up to the point where i was looking into the layers before. then it stopped.

somehow cura remenbered this setting and reproduced it.


Now i cleared Cura s Gcodes away, reloaded the .stl and tried again..

I know the .stl is not perfectly healthy but it printed fine earlier.

Look what i got...


i got this strange Gcode disc hovering in my print.

Sadly i actually cant reproduce that until now

but i still have that gcode and a screenshot.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
