I am running PreForm in a Win 10 VirtualBox. All my computers run Linux natively.
I was wondering, roughly how many cores and how much memory should we give PreForm in order for it to perform reasonably well?
I’m currently giving it 4 cores and 12Gb of RAM. PreForm seems a bit sluggish. For example, generating print files for a fairly simple dodecahedron model is taking over 10 minutes.
Is this normal? I imagined it would be snappier than this. It’s possible I haven’t set up my Virtual Machine as well as I should have. I will try doing the same from home tonight. I don’t often use VM Windows machines and I frequently forget how to make the Virtual Windows machine happy.
I have tried rebooting the virtual machine a few times, giving it additional resources. It seems every time I give the machine more ram or cores, they are used.
