Cura 15.04 under windows 10 doesn't start (stops after clicking on splash screen)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I don't know this is a double post, but I couldn't find it and had to solve it.

problem: all Cura version 15.x didn't work on my windows 10 machine any more

(This was very unhandy, since Cura 2.x works (beta), but is very unstable)

The cure:

1. Start a text editor as Administrator

2. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04.5\Cura\gui\util\openglHelpers.py

3. Comment the line saying "glutInit() #Hack; required before glut can be called. Not required for all OS"

(Thanks to the developer for puting the ""Hack" comment there, that helped finding the problem!)

4. Start Cura

5. Success!

For people having similar problems, how to reproduce/debug the problem:"

1. open a command windows (DOS)

2. cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04.5"

3. Start Cura

4. after it crashes, etc. go to: C:\Users\\.cura\15.04.5

5. open the output_log.txt and notice the hints

6. (you can safely delete the log and try again)

    • 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.
