Project planner stops early

Recommended Posts

Since 1 week project planner stops after slicing the first element of a group. It doesn't matter what I'm slicing. I have had the problem on another Mac. I tried saving to another folder (i.e. desktop) It seems that the windows version is not affected.

Config:

Mac OS X 10.8.2

Cura 12.11 (fresh install)

So I found a quick workaround.

Login as a guest install a fresh copy of cura and sice. This will only work for the first slice and I cannot open the preference panel.

After that I need to delete the guest user and login as a new one in order to slice again… strange.

Maybe it has to do with the preference file? I cannot find where it is saved.

Strange still no sucsess even after removing pref and re-installing cura.

It really stops slicing after the first object and says "it took xx secondes to export the file." with a progression bar half way there.

How can I run cura in terminal?

This week-end I'm doing a clean system install anyway it might help.

Thanks for the tip. This is what I get in the terminal once its stops:

Looks like a possible problem with language settings. What native language do you have configured in your Mac?

Most likely, removing the "at: {day} {date} {time}" from the start code works around this.

Also fixed this for the next release :-) it will no longer stop slicing, and replace none-ascii chars with a question mark (best I can do right now, most of the code is build around ascii strings instead of unicode strings)

    • 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.
