Cura 4.x.x Slow?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.x.x Slow?

Has anyone else noticed how slow and sluggish version 4 of Cura runs? I went back and installed a copy of 3.4.1 to test some things today and was blown away by how quick it runs on my system. On 3.4.1 a job sliced in 5 seconds whereas the exact same job on 4.2.1 took 21 seconds. Just navigating the menus and settings on the new Cura has significant delays as well.

    I used Cura 4.1.0 for a while now and everything was fine. Later I installed 4.2.1 and 4.3.0. These versions are barely usable. I now have all these three versions on ONE Computer. Cura 4.1.0 is still fast. The younger versions are not.


    Startup, slicing, everything is slower. Moving the viewport in preview is a real pain.

      • 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
