building for long time, is there any remedy

Dear All

I have downloaded the source of slicer 3D and building it for Windows, My CMake configuration and generation is all OK with Qt 5.10.

But when I am building it, it takes a long time, for Windows 10 and Laptop. Is there anything that can be done to reduce the build time. Or is it taking for first time.?

Please give me some suggesstions.


Indeed, full build time on Windows can be long (few hours on a desktop, up to 10-12 hours on a laptop). Since you only need to build it once and all further builds are incremental, this is usually not a concern. Moreover, you rarely need to build Slicer core, but most of the time you make changes and build your own extension.

Thanks for your valuable answer.
