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.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
