Have to wait 5 to 6 seconds or more to select a model, move it, select material etc....task manager indicates 2% CPU or more with very high to moderate POWER USAGE

 

have to close Cura and reload then it's fine for awhile maybe back to slow again

 

Suggestions??????

 

Thanks

    At least we now have a culprit.

     

    I have a hunch the real problem is the combination of something in your network and the "zeroconf" (also known as bonjour, avahi) component that is used to find your printer on the local network.

     

    If you would like to experiment, open plugins/UM3NetworkPrinting/src/Network/LocalClusterOutputDeviceManager.py in a text editor and change line 62 from self._zero_conf_client.start() to #self._zero_conf_client.start(). Put the # directly in front of self._zero_conf_client.start(), not at the beginning of the line.

     

    This should disable the zeroconf discovery of printers. Effectively this means that you have to manually add your local printer by its IP address.

    Hi guys,

     

    I have an ender3v2 and wanted to add the octoprint RPi upgrade, since i registred the  printer, cura was just a slow slow snail (this computer is new also with rtx3060 and windows11).

     

    Thanks to your message with the disabling of the plugging listed above, it's working well now, but i don't know if there was a better solution to get back octoprint ? i don't have time to try the zeroconf disabling in the python file.

    cura 4.13.1 for me and windows11

    You don't have to disable anything in Python. Can you try unchecking the "Automatically discover local OctoPrint instances" checkbox at the bottom of the Connect to OctoPrint dialog?

    Hi sir,

    Sorry for the late reply but I just dropped a bit the 3d printing because the issue cames back after I wrote my previous message... Tried to fully update the computer as it was new, bios and everything is up to date. I saw cura 5.0 beta was released and I installed it. Unfortunately, the issue is still here. I didn't mentioned it but it seems relevant, the processor is a AMD Ryzen7 with windows11.

    It's really strange because even my old surface pro3 run it well.

    Let me know if I can install something so you can have logs easily with the way to use it. 

    Also, rotating the object works instantly like multiplying it, but moving it make the hole cura crash and doesn't respond anymore. And if it respond after 30secs, navigating the menu Options etc is slow as hell and may not respond too. Even when a simple cube calibration is loaded.

    Octoprint plugging is not installed on cura 5.0 also. Hope it helps

    Hi @ahoeben again, i found the solution while having some troubles using Labview. The issue is due to the AMD ryzen processor.

    https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/error-loading-lvanlys-dll-in-Labview-64-bits/m-p/4012188#M1147294

    The solution purposed  is working great and improving/solving the issue about the bad performances. It's really fast now.

     

    Extracted from the discussion on the thread: (thanks to those guys)

    1) Add a new environmental variable in Windows: Control Panel » System » Advanced System Settings » Advanced » Environment Variables » System variables (the bottom part of the dialog) » New
    2) Put MKL_DEBUG_CPU_TYPE as Variable name
    3) Put 4 as Variable value (or 5)
    4) Confirm OK multiple times to close all dialogs
    5) (A Windows restart might be needed.)

    MKL_DEBUG_CPU_TYPE = 5

    That is an interesting find. I'll see if I can help more people with that.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
