When I load a large (~30000 line, perhaps) gcode file into ground control, it seems to get reallky bogged down, resulting in painfully slow cuts. I’ve found that if I split the files up into about 10000 lines each, the problem is mitigated somewhat, and things go at a much more reasonable pace.
The most recent cut I’ve experienced this with was a pretty complex relief carving of a face, so it was made up of many many very small XYZ moves. And it seems to take around two seconds between each command. When I split the file up into 3, it seems to go at least twice as fast, maybe a little more.
Appologies for the vagueness of my description, but, is this behaviour well known? It’s not terribly tricky to split the files up, but it would be really nice if I didn’t need to take that extra step.
Cheers, and thanks!
