Cannot Save Project

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I save a project, it gives me an error: "Could not save to C:\ ... \*.curaproject.3mf: maximum recursion depth exceeded". Has anyone else seen this error or know what causes it? It will still create a file but Cura will not reopen it.

Thanks in advance

Ugh :(That stupid thing again. It's one of those issues that rears it's ugly head every so often, but has proven to be a nightmare to find (and therefore fix).

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I've had this problem using Cura 2.4.0 a few times but I've also been using Cura 2.5B and haven't seen it in the beta yet. If it helps to know, I have Windows 7x64 and a UM3e. Are there known conditions that cause it or is it a true gremlin in the system?

I also have this problem sometimes with Cura 2.5 final on Debian Jessie. The message is:

"maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a python object". If this error

occurred, i cannot save or open any project. After restarting Cura everything seems

fine. I played around a little bit with this issue, but unfortunately I cannot reproduce

this error clearly

Have we found a cure or fix? I just started having this problem in Cura 2.5 and I can't save any of my files because of it.


This problem seems to have multiple causes and we have fixed all we are aware of in 2.6.0-BETA. Could you try to see if that versions works for you?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
