Cura crashes on switching printer

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Since around Cura 2.6 I have the problem that when I try to switch printers Cura just simply stops working. In the older versions of Cura i was able to work around this by going to the printer overview and changes the printers over there, however in cannot use this trick in the new Cura. The only way I can switch now is by deleting the other printers which is not really ideal. Have tried reinstalling a few times and it does nothing. Could someone help me?

With kind regards,

Job van Gennip

Could your press winkey+r, and type %LOCALAPPDATA%\cura and press enter.

An explorer window should open, containing a number of folders and stderr.log and stdout.log. Those two files should contain a hint to why Cura is crashing. Could you zip them up and post them somewhere?

    • "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.
