Re: Cura 4.0 Beta

I'm just so used to exporting from Cura, or Simplify3D, then uploading.

Re: Cura 3.6.0

I use my laptop as my desktop...so usually Never Off On Power on everything. I didnt go with the Xeon, it was a bit more than I wanted to spend

It's a beast of a laptop and I love the huge screen. I could never go back to a 13 or smaller...I can endure a 15"

Re: Cura 3.6.0

I just recently installed Ubuntu on a one-year old laptop, I hadn't thought to try Cura on it.

Sadly, Cura runs slow on my brand new Lenovo P72 laptop. Intel i7 with 6 cores! They really need to optimize their code

Re: Cura 3.6.0

I think that's an old known issue with multiple monitors....although I run three and never have had that happen

I asked on the Octoprint Forum and got a marvelous, really great read on how things work and where the slow downs occur. Long story short, the USB controller on your 3D Printer controlbox is the key fac...
