Trouble rotating, calculation phase constantly running and crashing.

Posted · Trouble rotating, calculation phase constantly running and crashing.

I am trying to use 15.09.90

I already have 3 previous version installed 15.06.03, 15.06.01, 15.02.01.

I have only been able to print with 15.02.01 the later two version have problems with the model not using shaders correctly i.e. I can only see a silhouette

I am running Windows 7 64 bit, I5 processor, 32 gig Ram.

I am spending an awfully long time trying to rotate my object once it has first been imported. The slicing calculation starts as soon as it has been imported. If I start rotating the object whilst it is slicing I get random crashes and hangs with no feedback to whether there is an error. It just hangs at the stage before the percentage slider starts its accent or after that stage. Maybe 66% maybe 95%.

The new rotation tool is making this problem a lot bigger than it needs to be. I cannot fathom how you rotate the model when if I move my mouse to the left is only moves 15 degrees then to the right maybe 135 degrees. Then when I move it back to the left it goes to 600 degrees!???

The calculation phase runs as soon as I change anything, which usually ends with a crash.

I need a button to start the calculation phase so that I can actually get it into position without crashing.

When I import a model it is always laying down so I “always” need to use rotate. Can you not at least follow the same xyz system of popular modelling programs?

    keep to 15.04, or 15.02 if this works for you, this is the most stable version.

    15.09 is still beta.

    I did update my video card drivers.

    I'm confused as to which one is beta or alpha? its at version 10 and still in beta?

    15.02 still has erratic behavior...


    • Loading model under build plate
    • gcode button not working
    • model not even loading
    • scale functions mixed up after rotating Z thinks is Y etc
    • calculation phase running constantly; crashing software
    • Always needing to close Cura and go through the painful steps again praying is doent crash

    We use a version system that uses year.month.version

    15.02 uses our old code base, which is not in beta and is seen as rather stable.

    15.06 > is with new code base and is still in beta.

    Loading under build plate is actually an issue in the 15.06 range. I've never heard it happening to 15.02. Could you make screenshots of this?

    WIth regards to crashing software and slicing, have you tried disabling firewalls? Cura uses a local socket to the slicing, but some firewalls seem to block this.

      • 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
