Compiling Cura 13.03 in OSX 10.8

Recommended Posts

I am trying to compile latest github pull of Cura on 10.8.3 OSX and managed to setup the environment as well as package the .dmg file. The only problem is that after I installed the .dmg file which I packaged earlier, I tried to run Cura. Cura quits immediately. When I try to run cura.py using pythonw, the following error appears:

 

File "cura.py", line 15, in <module>

from Cura.util import profile

ImportError: No module named Cura.util

 

Anyone can help?

Thanks for the tips. I have managed to compile, run and package successfully on 10.8. Hope fully this helps.

Follow the instructions in github Daid/Cura on OSX section. After that, try to run cura with pythonw -m Cura.cura

as per Daid's advice above.

 

Then there may be errors and try to install the missing modules:

 

easy_install pyobjc-core

easy_install pyobjc

 

pip install numpy

pip install PyOpenGL PyOpenGL_accelerate

pip install pyserial

pip install power

Finally, Cura should be able to be executed finely. Then only package it with ./package.sh darwin.

    • "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.
