Help with Cura on OSX 10.7.4 - slicing errors

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I have problems slicing a model in cura 12.08 using Mac osx 10.7.4.

when i try to "Slice to GCode" i get an error saying:

"Something went wrong during slicing!", the log reveals:

-------------------------

File /Applications/ReplicatorG/examples/hexagon.stl is being chain exported.

Exception traceback in getModuleWithDirectoryPath in archive:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/fabmetheus_utilities/archive.py", line 244, in getModuleWithDirectoryPath

folderPluginsModule = __import__(fileName)

File "/Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/skeinforge_application/skeinforge_plugins/craft_plugins/carve.py", line 107, in

from fabmetheus_utilities import svg_writer

File "/Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/fabmetheus_utilities/svg_writer.py", line 14, in

from fabmetheus_utilities.xml_simple_reader import DocumentNode

File "/Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/fabmetheus_utilities/xml_simple_reader.py", line 35, in

from fabmetheus_utilities.geometry.geometry_utilities import evaluate

File "/Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/fabmetheus_utilities/geometry/geometry_utilities/evaluate.py", line 10, in

from fabmetheus_utilities.geometry.geometry_utilities.evaluate_elements import setting

ImportError: No module named fabmetheus_utilities.geometry.geometry_utilities.evaluate_elements

That error means; could not import a module with the fileName carve

and an absolute directory name of /Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/skeinforge_application/skeinforge_plugins/craft_plugins

-------------------------

i tried various python 2.7.3 versions: the osx-shipped python 2.7.3, macports python 2.7.3 and the one manually installed one...

with all versions i get the same error.

what is wrong?

tanks for any help.

Yes.

The file evaluate.py and evaluate_elements folder exists under these pathes:

/Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/fabmetheus_utilities/geometry/geometry_utilities/evaluate.py

/Applications/Cura-12.08/Cura/cura_sf/fabmetheus_utilities/geometry/geometry_utilities/evaluate_elements

Content of evaluate_elements is:

-rw-r--r--@ 1 inx staff 0 Jul 6 14:34 __init__.py_

-rw-r--r--@ 1 inx staff 2110 Apr 3 2012 creation.py_

-rw-r--r--@ 1 inx staff 3132 Apr 3 2012 document.py_

-rw-r--r--@ 1 inx staff 6751 Apr 3 2012 setting.py_

i was wondering about these underscores... but left them on.

just unpacked the package osx64-Cura-12.08.tar.gz again using "The unarchiver version 3.3", browsing to the same folder shows me the files with underscores...

unpacked them via command-line and the underlines are not there...

so "The Unarchiver" did manipulate the files?!

Tried again unzipping the tar.gz in the command-line first, and then using "The unarchiver" with the left over .tar file.

This did work.

weird.

Using the freshly unpacked archive without underscores worked.

Thanks!!

    • "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.
