Cura 12.12 on OSX 10.6.4 fails to run

Hi,

I have had Cura RC2, 3 & 4 running on OSX 10.6.4 since the summer, no probs with cura or printrun, using :

python 2.7.3, python-2.7.3-macosx10.6.dmg

wxpython2.9, wxPython2.9-osx-2.9.3.1-cocoa-py2.7.dmg

pyOpenGL, PyOpenGL-3.0.2a5 (tar.gz)

pyserial, pyserial-2.6 (tar.gz)

This 12.12 dmg package installs ok - just follow the instructions - but it fails to launch, giving a MacOs Error report.

Are there some to-do's on MacOs before running this new Cura version ? New Python or somehing ?

Does anyone have 12.12 running on 10.6.4 ? Does an earlier version, like the 12.08 work ?

I'm keen to try the "pause" feature ...

Regards to all, Happy New Year,

JonJude

    The pause function is also present in Cura 12.11, which you can still get from

    http://software.ultimaker.com/?show=all

    In 12.12 the packaging method has changed to solve a whole number of issues. And 12.12 doesn't require anything installed on the system anymore (as it contains everything) but apparently it doesn't work on your 10.6.4 install (while my build target was 10.6, so that's odd) I'll look into it. And try to use 12.11 in the meantime.

    Hi Daid,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think I need to mention, for the SW combination I got working before I had to specify

    VERSIONER_PYTHON_PREFER_32_BIT=yes

    in my shell before calling either cura or printrun.

    Yes, I'll try with the earlier version when I can.

    Regards,

    JonJude

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
