Cura crashes - out of Hard Drive space

Recommended Posts

I have been using Cura to send prints to my printrbot simple metal (board version F.) I am running Cura on Mac OS X 10.6. I have been noticing during prints that the mac fan revs up when I start to print, and stays up until I close Cura (even after the print is done.) After a few hours, Cura becomes unresponsive and I have to kill it. It is really noticeable if I let a print go over night. In the morning, The Whole Mac is frozen, and I have to reset it. Also, I have noticed that my hard drive is getting written to (at a rate of about 10kb per second.) This has caused several "Hard Drive out of memory" crashes lately. Is there some way that I can fix this? I have deleted 50 gigs of old files, but the Hard Drive just fills right back up again.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
