Hi...wanted to ask the same question so rather than starting a new topic I thought I would drop in here.. Am I asking to much of this laptop to run Cura?? it keeps saying the .exe has stopped working when trying to load the program

    Thanks for they reply peggyb, I've seen the minimum requirements but as that page said..."Note: Although these are the minimum requirements, we recommend using better machines to use Cura with heavy models." So i'm trying to find out what the suggested or optimal specs would be. In order to call something a minimum requirement it only has to install and run some of the time.

    it says that it will run with 'normal models', so normal use. Most models are normal, but for instance scanned models are heavy (lots of triangles). Like most other software that deals with bigger files (music, photo's) you want some more power.
