Cura 64Bit for Windows

Recommended Posts

I have do a big 3D model (the star lord helmet) if I use cura in Windows it's block at 85%,

then I have Installed a virtual machine with linux 64bit and cura 64bit and the process has gone to 100% and the Gcode is preferct

I do not know which part of Cura3D it is need to 64bit

and I think a 64 bit is fast then 32bit :)

(excuse my bad english)

Most likely the gui needs 64bit then, which is complex. As it uses python and a lot of libraries. Not sure if all libraries are available in 64bit right now.

Note that the latest few RC releases improve on the memory usage a bit. But it is a growing problem as people are printing more and more complex objects.

    • "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.
