Cura won't stop crashing on OS X 10.8


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura won't stop crashing on OS X 10.8

I've tried everything I can think of but I can't get Cura to launch successfully on either of my 2 macs running OS X Mountain Lion. It actually ran fine initially but it crashed during the startup wizard and now it won't even launch. I've tried to uninstall/reinstall but nothing seems to fix it. Has anything changed that would make it not work on Mountain Lion? It's worked fine for me before so I doubt it's any dependencies on anything. Could there be some setting that got corrupt when the wizard bombed out?

    MacOS 10.8 is Mountain lion not Lion.

    The 12.12 release doesn't run on Snow Leopard, so far that is a known problem. The 12.12 release runs without problems on any 10.7 or 10.8 mac that I've seen. And the 12.12 release no longer requires anything installed on the system (it's packaged vastly different from the 12.11 release)

    It appears to be crashing from an EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION error. See error report below

    Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread


    Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000001, 0x0000000000000000

    I still have the gut feeling this might be due to the fact that the wizard exited pre-maturely the first time it was run. For example, does it assume that all wizard settings will be defined if the wizard has been run once? In my case, I don't think the wizard actually finished all the way. Are there any hidden settings I could try deleting to go back to a default state? Uninstalling and reinstalling just gives the same message so unless it's an application problem, I have to think there's some corrupt settings somewhere it's trying to load...

    Cura saves it's settings in the .Cura directory in your home directory. So you can remove that. However, aborting the wizard prematurely shouldn't cause problems, I do this quite often.

      • 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
