Cura using massive amounts of memory

Recommended Posts

we have a UM3E here at work and I have noticed Cura starts to use a lot of memory. My original computer only had 4gb of ram and once Cura got up to 2.7gb of ram, my computer would crawl.

I now have a completely new computer with 16gb of ram and left cura open for a few hours and it shot up to over 12gb of ram!

Anyone else experience this?

My theory is that it is the camera. I noticed that over time the video feed file grows and grows and grows. Maybe a possible fix would be to have cura create a new video feed file every few minutes to limit its size.

I connect to the printer over the network. It is wired in via ethernet. I found the video file on the network and i could watch the file size constantly grow.

Im OP, for some reason I couldnt log back into that account. I upgraded to 3.03 and seems to have solved the issue. It has gotten high (a littlbe over 1 gb) but nothing like it was before. It' been open now for an hour and id hovering at about 800 mb. Much more reasonable now I think. Tahnks.

    • "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.
