I have a fairly simple design that I need to cut out many parts of. I can fit 12 of them on a single smaller sheet of acrylic.
If I have a design with a single instantiation, it takes about 5 seconds to load. 20 seconds to get through “Preparing Your Print” and has a print time of 0:43.
If I duplicate the design 12 times (cut and paste), go back to home then loading the updated design (“Rendering your design…” before there is a screen shot of the bed of the cutter) now takes a little over 2040 seconds (34 minutes)!
If I start with a single instance, replicate and DO NOT go back home, I can render in about 56 seconds to get through “Preparing Your Print” and the print time is 08:20.
So why does loading 12 instances of a design (all on the host, not locally?!?) take over 400x the time for “Rendering your design” compared to one instance???
I will need to just save this (again) as a single instance and then duplicate it manually each time I want to use this file and try and remember to delete the duplicates before I go back to home or will get the forever “Rendering your design…” screen?
This can be replicated with the printer turned off, so wifi does not appear to be a factor.
Is there some way to have the renderer know this is a copy and not choke and die on a simple replication?
