Cura 2.1.2 x64 not running on Windows 10.

Recommended Posts

I have one of those Monoprice / Malyan mini printers. I got the latest json file for it from the Facebook group for it https://www.facebook.com/groups/1717306548519045/

I copied that to the folder with the rest of the json files for other printers, and upon running Cura for the first time it had a section for Ultimaker, one for Malyan (with just this one printer) and one for Other. Of course I selected the Malyan.

There is apparently a lot of things in the UI that are not showing up. The printer name in that drop list on the right is invisible. When I click Advanced, everything in the area below the Basic/Advanced selection vanishes. There's no save options at all in the File menu. All the object rotation functions are greyed out. Trying to zoom in on a loaded object just runs it off the bottom of the window, out of sight. It's forever saying its ready to slice but I see nothing to tell it to get on with things and slice. The build platform graphic isn't showing, I just get models floating in empty white space.

Now it just will not run at all. Pops up the splash screen briefly and dies without any error messages. I checked in task manager, it's not running.

Is there a log file I can post for people to diagnose why this isn't working?

I have the latest video driver from nVidia for my 9800GT. All drivers are up to date and the only antivirus running is Windows Defender.

      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
