Cura crashes on start up

Recommended Posts

I installed Cura on my laptop for the first time and it crashed on start-up. I get an error message saying 'unable to initialise openGL' whilst the Cura title bar says "add printer". I'm unable to screenshot what I see exactly becuase the screenshot looks different from my screen as I see it (never seen that before).

Uninstalling and reinstalling did not help.

My laptop has an integrated Intel 4500M graphics and Windows says the driver is up to date. I tried installing drivers again anyway and an error said that my specification was not sufficient to install which is kind of stupid.

Is my laptop too old? The drivers available on Intel's website are for Windows XP, Vista or 7. Nonetheless, Windows 10 obviously found something to use since my screen works just fine.

I have the same problem, only the ultimaker 3 works for me is that also the case with you?

 

Thanks for your relpy. I'm not sure what you mean. I thought the Ultimaker 3 is a machine and I'm having problems with Cura, the program. I can't even make a GCODE file from my STL so I don't get to try it on the Ultimaker (I only have access to an Ultimaker 2).

I haven't tried to connect my laptop directly to the Ultimaker 2. I wanted to make a GCODE file and transfer it to an SD card to put into the Ultimaker.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. 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.
