Can I turn off auto slicing?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Can I turn off auto slicing?

Problem is I often places very complex parts in cura and it tries do slice these objects before I'am ready with placing and rotating them correct.

This is no problem, if cura uses multicore processing (I got only 24 cores there should be enough power do slice the object instand, we discussed that in another tread) but when cura only uses one core it takes long until you can replace your object and rotate it.

Is it possible to turn off the auto slicing and to the slicing when you press a button?

Yes like the old days of cura.

It might be a useful setting in new cura.

Also I hope that a profile manager is integrated. I got 20-30 print profiles and always load the profile from the hard disk with clicking around in the folders is very time-consuming.

Maybe you can change the profile folder to a standard one, so you don't have to search your profile folder?

Nope, you can't. I know someone tried to hack the code to do that a while back but I can't remember how successful that was (if at all).

For the current version it is not possible.

I know that it's often requested maybe pink unicorn will have that feature?

I like the idea for the print profiles it would work like the plugins it's a good suggestion i think

Instead of a profile-manager, you could use the machine manager right now, as every machine has it's own profile. It's a bit of a hack, but it can help you with managing a lot of different profiles. (14.07 allows you to rename machines which helps in this case)
