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.

      • 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
