So I have Installed Cura on my windows system , I want run the cura software on the remote server that means running the software on Virtual Machine ( Eg - Windows Server ) .

So, How to setup the Cura On remote server , And So that I can upload a file and get the details from cura server that is running on remote system .

Example :

 

  • Consider Cura Running on the remote server
  • User Upload the design which has to be sent to the remote server
  • And, Processing will be done in Cura and the result/required data must be sent back to the user from remote system

 

So Any Suggestions like how to setup ? Really It would be helpful from your end .

Hi, 

 

There is another concept of remote server.

 

We have two computers, 1 a standard laptop where we run the CURA Gui where we do the stuff related to the positioning on the building area and so one.

 

And a second server that have a 32 vCPU cores, but has not possibility of interactive session. But I would put over this server the load corresponding to the slicing process. That's the "uranium" component if I'm not wrong, that is started by the gui and accessed using a loopback tcp/ip connection thru a socket created ad-hoc for the engine execution.

 

It's possible to segregate the Backend process to an external server that could process faster the slicing load?

 

Thanks.

    As far as I'm aware there's no way to use the Cura GUI with CuraEngine running on another computer.

     

    There might be hack-y solutions like using a firewall to redirect traffic from Cura directed to 127.0.0.1 to your server.

    You are. Wrong, that is. "Uranium" is a framework that is used by Cura. For all intents and purposes, it is just about half of the source code of the Cura frontend. What you are looking for is "CuraEngine". An instance of the CuraEngine is normally started by the Cura frontend, but you can also start an instance of CuraEngine to talk to a port and then tell Cura not to start its own CuraEngine process.

    I don´t know if the --external-backend trick works with remote computers, and it seems that you may need one CuraEngine process for each client that connects.
