Cura 15.06.03 - Not Slicing or Calculating or Saving


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 15.06.03 - Not Slicing or Calculating or Saving

Yesterday Cura was working fine, however today it is not working...

- Models Loads correctly and shows in solid view.

- However, Cure then does not calculate

- Layer view is blank (sometimes shows blank layers 0-11)

- Save button is grayed out

I have tried reinstalling, restating and various models including models I have previously printed successfully.

Engine log is blank in Help > show engine log...

Similar Posts have indicated that it is an antivirus issue on CuraEngine , but this appears to have installed correctly and Cura was working correctly until today so I do not think it is an install issue?

    To add to the mystery, I uninstalled the version 15.06.03 and downloaded and installed various versons of 15.10. From:


    Win 64 Nov 1st version - The model is perpetually slicing (even really tiny models)

    Win 64 Nov 17th version - The issue is the same as described in the original post

    Could there be some user setting that is being brought to the different versions?

    Further experimenting on a different computer using the same stl files and 15.06.03 versions of Cura have worked. Which makes me think the issue is something local?

    So I kept fiddling around and have found a solution that appears to have worked:

    With the win 64 Nov 17th Cura Version installed

    -Close Cura

    - Delete all files in:  C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\cura

    - Restart Computer

    -Re-Open Cura

    Then hopefully it should work!

      • 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
