Cura not slicing.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not slicing.

I installed Cura a couple of weeks ago and it initially worked very well, but at some point it stopped slicing models for me. I can click the "Prepare" button, but after that it just says "Slicing..." and nothing happens no matter how simple the model and long I wait. I've tried resetting all options to default, and even totally uninstalling and re-installing the software, but none of it seems to have made a difference. 

 

I've tried Cura on several different accounts with different permissions and compatibility settings, but the only thing seems to work is running it on a totally different PC.

 

Googling this problem I came across similar problems that seemed to be caused by firewalls, but I've disabled my firewall and this problem is persisting.

 

I have no idea what the problem could be, and Cura came highly recommended so I'd rather not switch to a different software.

 

Can anybody offer a potential solution?

    To make sure you're truly back to "zero" with the install, go to Help -> Show Configuration Folder. The folder containing all your personal settings for Cura will open. Close Cura and then remove everything in that folder, once that's done you can restart Cura again. This should have you back to factory defaults so to speak. This usually fixes weird issues.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
