Recommended Posts

Are you one of the many users who need to stop Cura from using the whole CPU as soon you drop a STL to slice? Do you want to enjoy the freedom of being able to change settings without the constant autoslice bullying you?

Very easy:

Quick tutorial to stop Cura from autoslicing at every single change.

How to:

- Change Flow to 1%

- Done!

How to restart autoslice

- Change flow to 100%

- Done!

Easy enough?

So easy I made a video, because this deserves it! a 3 Minutes video! That's how much I enjoy this trick

 

Note, yea my English is NO BUENO. I know :p

Press Like on this 'idea' to show that you like to be able to stop Autoslice!

(or don't if you love to use more CPU than necessary and you don't care about energy savings or the poor Rain Forest!)

It's not very user friendly, but I'm one of this guy who don't understand why Ultimaker doesn't want to add the possibility to disable the autoslice.

It could be easier to let the choice to the user.

 

It's going to change at some point, because we have to once we switch to multi-core slicing.

It only slows down when starting the auto slice on Mac, so switching to another OS also fixes the UI stutter ;)

Well. You can! If you install Linux on your system you support open source and save the rain forests! That's double good Samaritan points for one single action!

I have no problem with "autoslice". It's the "pre-slice" aka "preparing to slice" that kills the user interface for me (for 30 seconds with some models).

I keep my house cool so all extra CPU energy ends up keeping my tiny office warm and allows me to heat the rest of the house less. So at least half the year it doesn't waste any energy for me.

So is more efficient to use Cura heating the computer. Cool nice tip for winter!

    • "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.
