Cura cannot cope with big file?

Recommended Posts

I wish to print a model of the calcaneum (heel bone). I have converted a CT scan and the STL is 80Mb in size. As the calcaneum is a solid bone, I assume that the slicing takes some time. I did get to the point of having the gcode with a 30 hour print once. I want to make some changes to speed up the print - such as scale down the model and increase the print speed but now Cura simply gets stuck when building the gcode.

Is this a known problem with Cura that it cannot cope with big files

Thanks

TM

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
