How to speed up slicing
I’ve got an over 360X360X400 mm printer, and like to print large parts (hopefully using P3P I’ll be able to make those multicolor)
Unfortunately, Canvas takes an INSANELY long time to slice anything.
I have a very powerful desktop, and when using any other slicer (cura, S3D, Prusa, etc…) they can make use of the whole CPU or GPU (depending on which slicer) and generally slice files in a matter of seconds, but CANVAS sits there processing for 30-40 minutes.
I am aware that the parts I’m trying to process are high-complexity, large parts, with lots and lots of detail, but %#*@ this takes a long time!
Is there any way to speed this up?
I’ve started trying to tune in a Prusa profile for my printer, but it’s extremely slow going and the learning curve is %#*@ near vertical (especially given that my printer is mostly custom)
I have a perfectly tuned CURA profile already, and had previously used it with a 4-in-1-out mixing nozzle that I had set up prior to getting Palette.
Several of my upcoming projects would greatly benefit from 7-8 colors, and the printer can hit much higher speeds with the single nozzle mounted instead of the mixer (plus it saves 30mm of build area due to the head being smaller) so I would really like to get Palette working consistently.
half hour long slicing cycles is ridiculous.
Is this a good question?
