Mac Prepare print - nothing happens

Recommended Posts


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

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
