Cura Will Not Slice any Model I Load


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Will Not Slice any Model I Load

My company just purchased an Ultimaker 3 Extended and have set it up and printed sample prints. We were able to connect the printer via Ethernet but we are having issues with Cura. We are using Cura 2.3.1 64 bit. The printer is connected and I am even able to view the onboard camera, but when I load a model, it will not slice. The 3D object gets dropped on the build plate but in the bottom right it just says "slicing..." and the bar does not move. This is consistent for every model I use. I can manipulate the models on the build plate but the slicing never happens. I am unable to print anything. This issue needs to be fixed. Please help.

    I apologize for the delayed response. We ended up installing Cura 2.3.0 instead of 2.3.1 and everything works properly. I do not know what caused the issue with 2.3.1. We have not yet tried to install 2.3.1 one another computer, but we will do so soon. I will reply on this thread with the conclusion.

    We suspect a policy on your Windows installation may prevent "signed" applications from launching "unsigned" applications. The main Cura application is signed in 2.3.1, the CuraEngine is not. I believe work is underway to have both Cura and CuraEngine signed for 2.4, which would solve this (if it is indeed your problem with 2.3.1).

      • 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
