My slices are taking too long to process


I'm trying to slice my object but it is taking too long to process.


This occurs when you try to slice a complex part with a small feature size. 


The performance is reduced if you use a small feature size for slicing lattices or complex parts which turns out many edges to trace.

We suggest editing the feature size to try and find a balance between performance and speed. Feature size is the trade-off between performance vs resolution. 

If you have areas that are less important, like support structures, try using a high feature size in those areas. 

Another method is to look at processes further up in your notebook that could be causing or adding to the slow processing times.
