Why is Cura Jerky/Laggy positioning models???


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Why is Cura Jerky/Laggy positioning models???

This has been a constant issue for me since I think around 4.2 But I thought I'd got around it by disabling network printers via the Market Place but this no longer seems to works with 4.8 (I also disabled update checker just in case).

Basically I'm trying to position multiple small models on a plate and the drag function is virtually unusable. Sometimes it takes upto 10 seconds for the model to even start moving then it's jerky as hell. All in all work that should take a few seconds or a minute or two is taking many times longer.

It's got to a point where I'm looking for new slicing software - which after spending 5 years or so learning Cura is going to be a nightmare in itself.

Not Happy.

    There are too many things that could cause this. Some machines have a lot of issues with the network/octoprint plugin, but we still haven't been able to find out why. We've also gotten reports of slowdowns for other people, but without more information, there is little we can do.

    Sorry, the forums are really bad for keeping track of issues. This is why we prefer it if people post them on github.

    Have you tried disabling the network plugin and did you check if you have a network drive enabled?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • 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
