Cura 12.12.. Problems


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 12.12.. Problems

Hi guys,

I just installed Cura 12.12 and testing it. (MacOS 10.8.2 Macbookpro)

Interface is very slow and laggy sometimes (not all the time but very often) I have the yellow tooltips flicker around like crazy...

also when a big stl file is loaded. not the moving and rotating the mesh, i mean the klicking the textfields to change settings is very laggy and i have to wait some time until the flicker stops, my changes are accepted and displayed.

:( The first Cura i used didnt had this "feature"..(12.10)

Then Cura on every start loads the last used .stl.

I dont know why we would want Cura to do this... but if its needed i need a button to unload a .stl then.

I think starting with a "empty" cura would fasten things up.

Dont use special characters like "öäü" letters in the filename!!!

it stops slicing after miliseconds and shows just the button "show log". and the message "Something went wrong during slicing!"

when i click to the show gcode i can sometimes make it show up and it also look like a normal gcode.

but the actual gcode file is empty... and wont open in other gcode viewers or texteditors.

my error log looks like this:

Traceback (most recent call last):

    Most likely it's the background GCode loader that slowing things down, it's been a thorn in Cura's side from the start, and I'm working towards interface changes to get around this.

    The öäü is yet another "none ascii" bug, fixed a bunch already. Fixed this one for the next version. (It's annoying because it depends on the character used where the bug pops up, and if it pops up at all)

      • 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.
