Cura gets slower the longer its open

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura gets slower the longer its open

Hi,

 

Ive had this issue on a few version and multiple PC's that Cura seems to keep increasing the resources until its unusable and need to be reopened.

 

I've attached pictures of the task manager of when its first opened and then after about a day. After a few hours its noticibly sluggish.

Even after an hour of been open its from from the 0.3% CPU usage to 3%.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

 

PC im currently using:

i7-6700

32gb ram

quadro p4000 gfx card

 

Cheers

Are you logged in? Did you try disabling the um3network plugin? Do you have the octoprint plugin? Did you use camera streams?

Was not logged in for this one, but have in the past with same issue. Not using octoprint, but do access webcam through cura connect.

 

Ill try disabling the network plugin and see how it goes.

Hi Nallath,

 

Looks like that plugin was the issue. I left two instances of cura open overnight, one with the plugin disabled and that one is working fine but the otherone is using a lot of resources again.

 

Any fix for this at the moment?

 

Cheers

I have the same exact issue with Cura using too many resources until the computer is unusable.

I have installed Cura 4.6.1 on multiple windows 10 machines in a lab setting as well as my own laptop. All computers experience the same problem.

 

I have to load my model, send the print job, and then exit Cura. I cannot leave cura running for more than 5-10 minutes since it will become unusable.

@alkekmakerspace, to identify and hopefully fix the problem it helps if you at least answer the same questions as asked above:

Logged in on my laptop, not logged in on the other 4 windows 10 installs that I tried. Disabling the UM3network plugin seems to stop cura from using too many resources, but that also stops the ability to print over the network. We do not have octoprint. The camera streams are active, but they go in and out. I rarely connect to them.
