Looking to buy a used gaming laptop. Specs: i7-7700HQ + GTX1050  + 16GB RAM

 

-Should I be able to run CURA smoothly without any lag with multiple parts on the build plate?

 

My previous laptop was: i7 9750H + RTX 2060 +16 GB RAM and was fine when I had it.

 

Thanks for your inputs! :-)

    I use a Core i7-7500U with 16 GB, and nothing but the integrated graphics as my main development machine for Cura, and even that works just fine.

    Okay thanks for your input. Sometimes it may lag a lot when dealing with tons of multiple parts on the build plate in Cura.

    We've created a plugin that can collect performance data. Since Cura behaves differently on different hardware, it would help us find out what is going wrong if you can collect this data and send it to us.

    You can find it here: https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/plugins/UltimakerPackages/ExtensiveSupportLogging

    Something that may help if you find that having "a ton" of parts on the buildplate slows things down, is to "preassemble" the buildplate in your modeling program. So instead of loading one stl and multiplying that in Cura, you would multiply the model in your modeling software of choice and load it into Cura as a single stl.
