Cura 2.7 Unable to Slice

Recommended Posts

I just had the same issue. Because you mentioned about Cura 2.6.2, I was able to find a workaround for my problem. Hope this helps you as well, if you haven't already figured it out.

This happens only for the 'custom printer' profile. If you select any of the existing machines included in the software, you won't get this error. I tried changing the 'machine settings' of my new custom machine, but no luck.

But the custom machines which I had added a long time ago in the previous versions of Cura (which then were automatically migrated to the newer version when I installed one) were still working fine. I was using Cura 3.0, I tried Cura 2.7 but got same error.

Then I downloaded Cura 2.6.2 and it worked fine!

So the workaround is, create your custom machine profile in Cura 2.6.2 and then install the latest version. The new version will automatically import the profiles from 2.6.2 and they work perfectly fine with all the latest features!

But this is just a workaround and I hope the Cura team fixes this issue. Can't keep uninstalling newer version simply to add a machine profile and then install the new version again.

Sid.

    • "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.
