Cura Hangs after slicing a complex object

Recommended Posts

I am using cura RC4 on windows - what I notice is that after I slice a complex object (large object), cura hangs ("not responding") while trying to load the gcode animation for the object that it just sliced... Eventually it does load up the gcode visualization - but after a while... so it would be good if there was a way in preferences or somewhere to toggle gcode visualization feature and turn off gcode animation feature...

You're right, during the loading of the GCode preview, the GUI hangs. When I made the code for the GCode loading I didn't know about some things inside of Python, which is causing this irritating bug. I've known about it for quite a while already, but I haven't found a way around it without making GCode loading times much worse.

(It's the loading of the file that takes long, not the displaying, the displaying has been improved in RC3 so it is faster and doesn't block the GUI)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
