Cura Error

I keep getting a "xxx.stl is chain exporting" error. This happens no matter what STL file I try. I've checked task manager, viewing all tasks, and there is nothing from any of my CAD programs running. Currently, I cannot print anything because this error always happens on every file I try.

Any ideas?

EDIT: I rebooted my computer and opened only Cura. Loaded an STL. Pressed "Prepare Print." Almost immediately, I get "Something went wrong during slicing." When I press "Show Log," it says, "File xx.stl is being chain exported. Carve procedure took 0 seconds."

What's strange is it's been working for a couple months and now suddenly gives this error on every attempt to prepare any STL file for printing. What's up with that?

EDIT2: Just realized that I was running Cura 12.11, so I uninstalled it, downloaded the latest, installed it, and now I'm running through the wizard. I'll let you know if I still get the error.

EDIT3: It works now! Just uninstalled and installed latest. Boom. Back to working.

      • 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.
