I have a few files which have multiple holes from Part Design > MultiTransform and Path > Array, around 150 holes. Whenever I change anything it takes a long time to recompute, over 100 seconds sometimes. When I look on my System Monitor it shows one core (there are 8 on this machine) fully loaded, but the others are at a few percent. Memory usage stays at around 30% so no problem there. Is there any way to tell it to use all cores? I cannot see anything in preferences to do it.
Also I have found that using Path > CAM Simulator the rest of my machine pretty much locks up. I have run a couple of simulations which look like they will take hours or days to complete (OK my fault for using 0.5mm bit for large pocket operation) and I was unable to stop the simulation, couldn't get out of FC and had to crash my machine. Is there a more civilised way to abort a simulation? The Cancel button would not work.
