Cura Error

Recommended Posts

Posted · 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.
