  1. I've always found that running it in Windows 8 compatibility mode fixes the problem. I have to do this every time a new release comes out and it never fails.
  2. Set the compatibility settings for cura.exe to windows 8.
  3. That should read win 8. I edited it in my original post, but forgot about the other posts that I replied to.
  4. I've just discovered the same fix. I seem to remember having the same problem with an earlier version as well. Took me a while to remember the fix.
  5. I think I just solved this problem. I've been fighting with it for 3 days. I have run the compatibility troubleshooter and it has recommended Windows 8.1 compatibility. I now have it running. It did change some settings in my active profile which it adopted from my 4.1 config. It changed line width and speeds.

  8. I have seen the same mentions of problems with thingiverse, but haven't seen any problems with Cura 4.1.0 so it doesn't seem like a thingiverse problem.
  9. This hasn't fixed the problem and I doubt that thingiverse is the issue as 4.1.0 loads without error. I have reinstalled and it now gets past upgrading configuration and now sits at loading preferences.
  10. I've been running 4.1 for a while and just installed 4.2.1. When I start it, the splash screen opens and cycles through loading plugins and then updating configuration. 2 hours later it is unchanged. I have established that if I have my network disabled, it crashes pointing at the thingiverse plugin. I'm not sure if that is significant or not.
  11. Of course, measuring the width accurately enough is another challenge.
  12. If you extrude 10mm of 1.75mm filament and print it as a stripe on the bed. You can measure the thickness and width of the extruded stripe and the length to calculate the volume extruded. Its pretty easy to calculate the volume of 10mm of 1.75 diameter filament. If you compare them you can calculate a correction factor to extrude the correct amount of filament. Stuart
  13. Unfortunately, just changing colour in the same brand of filament can need almost all parameters changing, making a per material flow almost pointless. You will still need to adjust it in your profile. I generally print in eSun pla plus in white grey and black. They need very different profiles.
  14. In my cura there is a flow parameter in Material for each profile. You just have to turn on the visibility of the setting.
  15. Its actually intel hd 520. I had to uninstall the manufacturer driver to install the intel one. Hasn't fixed the problem.
