Crua 3.0.3 loads, displays drawing platform, then quits.

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use Cura 3.0.3 on a Windows 7 platform. When Cura is selected, it goes through setup,loading software and machines. When I select "Other" and then select "FABtotum" the drawing platform loads, waits a couple of seconds, then the program quits. I have a fast video processor and 32 GB of computer memory.

one idea that i read here recently...: take a look at the log file: "%APPDATA%\cura\3.0\cura.log", if it reports a problem in "grid.shader", try to replace the file in the program folder (....Cura\resources\shaders) with the newer version from the GitHub repository: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/tree/master/resources/shaders

Thanks for your help. I have copied the last few lines from the log file with latest grid shader installed (still fails):
