I just installed Cura on windows 10 but i can't start it up because it doesn't go past the splash screen. does anyone know what to make of the log? thanks

    I'm having a similar problem.

    Running Octoprint through M3Dfio and the screen to resize, etc. has disappeared.

    Running Cura on its own results in the splash screen which disappears on a mouse click.

    Uninstalling and reinstalling has no effect.

    Uhm. The solution is very silly I'm affraid. Remove minecraft from your system.

    Well that would help if I had Minecraft on my sytem.

    I have very little on the computer because I use it almost exclusively for 3D printing.

    I tried messing around with glut.dll as suggested in previous posts but that didn't work.  Also it is present in one of the python subdirectories

    The only software I have installed recently is GiMP.

    I had the same problem. (possible cause: using AVG TuneUp registry clean-up).

    Uninstalling Cura and Minecraft didn't help.

    I found that it helps to make the following change to Cura\util\pymclevel\materials.py



        def addYamlBlocksFromFile(self, filename):       if  yaml is None:           return




        def addYamlBlocksFromFile(self, filename):       if True:           return

    I have the same error on Win7 trying to install Cura14 for my UM original. Never played or installed Minecraft.

    The file the error refers to is located in C:\cura14\Cura\util\pymclevel\minecraft.yaml

    Editing Cura\util\pymclevel\materials.py as suggested did not help.

    I finally solved it on my Win7 computer. I am using UM original after a very long time. I tried newer Cura 2.6 version but could not get same results as using older Cura 14 version.

    The error was obvious:

    "ImportError: No module named distutils.util"

    I already had Python installed. So I copied folder C:\Python27\Lib\distutils to C:\cura14\python\Lib\distutils and now the error is gone.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
