Mac Prepare print - nothing happens

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have been using cura before on a win8 laptop without problems. I now have a mac, and trying to run cura.

I open cura - works fine

i define my settings - no problem

I open my stl - works fine (i can se the model)

I then hit the "prepare model" key - it just says starting... and nothing happens...

I can abort the process - cura does not crash

I have tried this before on a windows pc running win xp, and never got it to work in that machine.

I have looked through a couple of forums and searched in this one, but i can't seem to find an answer..

Anyone got an idea?

Regards Nic

maybe you are running the cura app from its installer file .dmg?

i know quite some windows users that tend to do that on a mac.

if yes move Cura to application folder and then start it from there.

Also check if the stl too big or has flaws in its first few layers.

Hi. thank's for the reply's.

I have moved the file to the applications folder. So that should not be the issue. The same STL is sliced without problems with cura running on my laptop.

I also installed win7 with bootcamp on my mac and can slice in cura there.

But it would be nice if it worked in OSX though...

I don't now how to give anything execute permissions on a mac :S

    • 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.
