Disable Model Checking in PreForm


#1

Depending on the model, the automated checks for printability can be terribly slow (e.g. Intel Core i7-5600U, 8GB RAM) in the PreForm software (e.g. version 3.2.2). This may also slow down other processes such as orienting the model or generating the support structures.

Please correct me if I am wrong; but to my knowledge, there is no menu option to disable these automated model checks. Could you please add such an option to the PreForm software.

It does not make much sense to constantly check my models while I am still orienting them or generating/editing the supports. To save computation time, it might be enough to manually initiate a final model check at the very end.

I second this motion. All I’ve got is a Xeon E-2176M w/ 64GB RAM and it takes eons to do the evaluations. I can’t get anything else done while its spending a solid minute or two thinking about something I didn’t ask for.

same here, this should have a option to turn it on when ready to do so :slight_smile:

Great idea.
