Cura stopped slicing

I have been using Cura with my Wanhao Duplicator 3 since 14.03. I tend not to bother updating too often as it all seems to work extremely well for me but I will try new version as and when the desire hits me.

At some unknown time in the last few weeks I cannot get it to slice if I have the "Machine centre 0,0" ticked in machine settings. If I untick that then all works as it should but when I tick it then it will not slice.

If I run from teh command line I get a Python error so I am thinking that it is something else that I have installed or modified since I last used Cura. I have tried 14.02 - .04, they are all the same. I have to fix this or I am restricted to positioning things at the front left in Cura and having them print rear right on the machine.

Command line output:

Listening for engine communications on 49674

Exception in thread Thread-4:

Traceback (most recent call last):

    Well I have trawled the internet and reinstalled all the software including Python and all it's bits and numpy, edited all the files that stood even the most remote chance of fixing it and nothing doing, still the same. This is my last hope, if I can't get a fix here then sadly and with much regret Cura and I will have to part and go our separate ways. A sad day indeed.

      • 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
