Cura Speed

Recommended Posts

Maybe its just me but every-time i use cura it takes forever to load. I switched to layer view, it takes forever before it loads and i can actually use the layer slider on the side. I open simplyfy3d and it loads instantly and everything runs smoothly. Does Mac vs Pc make a difference in load and slicing times?..Im using a Mac Pro (garbage can) ..... .Even on my New MBP top of the line ... its does the same thing

    A PC is a PC honestly in terms of hardware, assuming both machines are running equal items. Apple just tries to make it seem like some foreign computing device.

    Any slow loading and processing would be either due to the operating system, how cluttered the available disk space is and the program being run itself.

    I've just started using Cura instead S3D for my new printer (UM3 Ext) hoping for a smooth process with good results. So far it is slow to load, slow to load models, slow to slice and I find it odd that "fast" in Cura is basically too fast for the machine which lead to some fun looking prints.

    It seems to be mostly in the software engineering that the quality comes out in S3D, which is just a few guys vs. a major company with high profit margins.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
