Cura Hangs after Multiply operation - reaches 100%


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Hangs after Multiply operation - reaches 100%

Good morning,


I am running Cural 4.6.1 on Windows 7 Home 64bit, Intel Core i7 @ 3.47 GHz 20 GB RAM.


When I use the multiply operation and create multiple new objects (in this case 39 new small objects), Cura hangs at 100% of the operation. I eventually have to use Task Manager to kill the application and the engine.


Are there any settings to improve the operation and prevent the hang?

    This is a trick I just learned here.  It might work for you.

    Multiply the model 10 times.

    Export the model as a binary STL file.  All 10 instances will be exported as a single entity.

    Clear the build plate.

    Open the new STL file.

    Multiply the new file 10 times.

    You get 100 pieces on the plate and hopefully you won't run out of resources.
