slicing time sooooo long oO

Hello !

I try to slice some pieces a little complex and I need lot of support material (pva with double hotend). but whenever there is a little too much support material the slicing time explodes. For example I'm trying to slice a little motorbike ( 15cm ) and the "progress line" seems blocked at "generate support material", not just 30min, but 6h or after a night!
I've got a good pc with gtx, i7... so, I don't understand :/

thanks in advance for yours answers smiling smiley

Check ram usage. If your ram usage exceeds ram you start to swap out memory you get really slow. Also avoid crossing perimeters seems to have great impact on speed for slic3r.
