Experimental Cura build for Raspberry Pi 4 now available

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Experimental Cura build for Raspberry Pi 4 now available

Now available is a Linux AppImage that runs on an armhf system (e.g. a Pi 4). It has received minimal testing but it does appear to work (I sliced a benchy OK!).

 

Obviously, even the amazing Pi 4 is still quite limited compared to most laptops, etc. so don't expect stellar performance but it is surprisingly usable. I think it exceeded my expectation.

 

It is highly recommend that you have 4GB of memory and a CPU fan!

 

Known limitations are that currently the layer view only works in compatibility mode and that the UI QML is slow due to lack of JIT support.

 

If you try it out, please post feedback on this thread or open an issue at https://github.com/smartavionics/Cura/issues.

 

You can find the release at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0.

 

Remember, all my builds are provided with no warranty whatsoever. That said, I try to fix issues where I can.

Here's the system it was built on. Very nice case from thingiverse sliced without top/bottom skins, just gyroid infill. The SSD wasn't actually used during the build as all files were on the SD card.
