Cura does not start, splash screen only

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am having this recurrent problem with my personnal computer (Windows 7) I tried with several versions of Cura (13, 14, 15) but it is always the same: when I click on the icon in the task bar I only get the splash screen (blue square with the name) and then nothing happens, if I cliks on the blue square it dissapears and that is all.

Maybe it is a python problem or maybe cura is getting stuck by some other program I installed in the past but I don't know the way to get that kind of information.

It's driving me mad, can anyone help me please ??

Thanks in advance

Hi

Sure there can be different problems, but in my case Cura could not find glut32.dll that was included with Cura's installation package (in my case in C:\Cura_15.04.4\python\Lib\OpenGL\DLLS). I just needed to copy glut32.dll to C:\Windows\SysWOW64

The same advice in more detail. In my case the Cura's log was in C:\Users\\.cura\15.04.4\output_log.txt and the content was

"Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Cura_15.04.4\python\lib\site-packages\wx-2.8-msw-unicode\wx\_core.py", line 14660, in

lambda event: event.callable(*event.args, **event.kw) )

File "Cura\gui\splashScreen.py", line 15, in DoCallback

self.callback()

File "Cura\gui\app.py", line 103, in afterSplashCallback

from Cura.gui import mainWindow

File "Cura\gui\mainWindow.py", line 17, in

from Cura.gui import sceneView

File "Cura\gui\sceneView.py", line 28, in

from Cura.gui.util import previewTools

File "Cura\gui\util\previewTools.py", line 12, in

from Cura.gui.util import openglHelpers

File "Cura\gui\util\openglHelpers.py", line 17, in

glutInit() #Hack; required before glut can be called. Not required for all OS.

File "C:\Cura_15.04.4\python\lib\OpenGL\GLUT\special.py", line 324, in glutInit

_base_glutInit( ctypes.byref(count), holder )

TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not callable"

Similar problem was already discussed in http://stackoverflow.com/a/10797801 , but instead dowloading the package mentioned there I found required dll in the directory mentioned.

Best,

K

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
