Cura stopped working altogether

Posted · Cura stopped working altogether

Hi, after using Cura (with a Macbook pro) with my new UM2 Extended without significant problems since about 3 weeks, yesterday it suddenly stopped working completely. When loading a new file, it newly goes automatically into layers view. On selecting normal view, the object disappears. One can't select it, it doesn't show the print time, one can't save the gcode. This was 15 mins after using it successfully and without installing anything in between.

After many tries loading different models (which had worked before), I decided to delete the Cura app (V15.02.1 - sent app folder with all contents to the trash) and and installed the latest version (V15.04). It made no difference, still nothing works. However, I noticed it still had the settings from before (UM2 Extended and Cube printers installed - I was not able to find where these settings are to delete them - I thought a completely new installation would be best).

If anyone has any idea what I could try, I would be grateful, thanks.

    Update: It is now clear, the problem had to do with me being a newbie with Cura. I was loading gcode files instead of stl files. When I loaded the original stl files, it all worked fine again.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
