Cura exporting empty gcode

Recommended Posts

I'm having a lot of trouble getting Cura to do... anything.

Every time I save a gcode, print, sent to sd path etc: I get a gcode file that reads only "Connect to 127.0.0.1:49674 failed"

I've tried so many configurations, so many installations and versions of cura and loads of different files.

I've spent 13 hours non stop on this now and I think its time for somebody to tell me I'm doing something dumb =(

Anybody?

Completely forgot I'd written this =/

Thanks for the replies.

The answer in case anybody needs it was simple. I just needed a completely new operating system. I only wish I was told before I spent my life savings on the printer doh!

RE: disabling the firewall... What??? If that were the case Cura would be immediately removed from my machine and the printer sold.

Huh? Why? Some firewalls simply have a far to aggressive policy, so they block local sockets. It's a fairly standard means to connect one bit of software with another.

That'd be very different, opening internal sockets and disabling my firewall are two different things. I am very conscious of the software running in my machines. Anything that wants out without me asking it to gets the boot.

I apologise for misunderstanding your meaning.

Yeah, but explaining people how to open internal sockets is hard (and depends on the firewall in question). Telling them to (temporarily) disable the firewall is easy ;)

Cura doesn't need external access / data to do its thing and I want to keep it that way.

Hear hear. I agree. Unfortunately it's way too easy to disable a firewall. That's why I first misunderstood you. In almost every tech forum I've been on "Disable your firewall/antivirus" is up there with "Reinstall Windows" as an answer to anything.

"My fuse blew in my monitor"

"Have you tried disabling your antivirus"

"My friend had this, he had to reinstall his Windows"

etc: =D

It's good to hear you're keeping Cura grounded. The one thing I've been really happy with it with so far is it doesn't need installing either. I hope it stays that way too.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
