Cura 4.8.0 running extremely slowly with multiple models


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.8.0 running extremely slowly with multiple models

I've been using cura for a bit now, and I haven't really had any big issues with it. However, today I split one "model" (it was an stl of multiple models) into its separate parts in cura. Having the pieces all as separate models (only 17 small models) absolutely tanked performance. The rest of my computer is still running perfectly fine, and has solid specs, which tells me that the issue is with the software and not my hardware. Anyone have a fix for this?

    I split a "letters" thing using mesh tools

    28 items on the plate

    locked up a gigabyte gaming laptop I just bought because it ran slow adding support blocks on my old embedded graphics machine. about 8~12 sec per execution with that load.


    dunno if that is normal or not


    but Its very reproducible, so I'm sure the devs are aware

      • 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
