Hello Dahai8,

thank you for your reply. Your suggestion with disconnecting the printer didn't solve the problem. My opinion is that the grafic card is to old.

It's an Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family Card. Processor is an INTEL centrino 2 Duo with an SSD and 4GB.

Maybe the laptop is to weak for this program.

On my girlfriends desktop which is one of the latest, everything runs smoothly.

Cheers

Hi Tony,

I have exactly the same problem as you have, however, I tried to select a customized printer and this work - also all other printers, even UMO and UMO+.

However, when I tried UM Go or higher Cura chrash.. So what can it be?

I’m using Win 7 / 64 bit pro.

Intel dual core DUO CPU 2 GHz Ram 8 Gb and 525 Gb SSD.

Grapic card: Intel Mobile R Express 965 chipset family.

Thanks.

Torgeir.

Hello Torgeir,

my opionion is that the grahic card used, causes the problems. I showed the problem to some friends of mine. They say that i could be a programming issue with the python script, or maybe not all graphic chips are supported.

Mybe one of the next verions of cura will solve the problem. I've tried Cura 2.3.1, but still the same.

Thanks for your reply.

Cheers

Thomas

This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
