Cura running very slow on my PC

Recommended Posts

HELP!!!  I am Running Windows 10 on an Intel Core i7-4790 @ 3.60GHz.  16 GB Ram, with NVIDIA Quadro K2200.  I have used Cura for the last several years and the last several updates have gotten progressively slower in actual functionality.  It can take half an hour to set up a simple print, where I used to be able to do it in a minute or two.  Cura spends a lot of time "Not Responding", thinking or ignoring requests.  Resizing and reorienting is a nightmare.  Changing any settings is next to impossible.  Cura is super fast on my MacBook Air, that actually has less Ram and a lower quality Graphics Card.  I have Deleted all old AppData, and tried reinstalling multiple times.   There have been no updates or changes to my machine that I know of  I can't recall the last time that Cura ran in a way that didn't waste my time, and this is a huge shame, because I absolutely hate using Simplify 3D.  Please Help Me.

    • "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.
