Cura 2.3.1 start-up screen

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've downloaded Cura 2.3.1 (only option on a Windows 7 32 bit operating system). There didn't seem to be any problem during the installation, but now when I attempt to open the program I get to the set-up screen which asks me to select a printer (I select Ultimaker2+) and then the whole thing crashes. I get a notification box which states 'Cura.exe has stopped working correctly. Windows will close the programme and notify you if a solution is available'.

 

However if I skip that part of the set-up screen and continue the whole programme works fine until I select a printer - I can open a file and play with settings etc, but as soon as I select 'Ultimaker2+' as my printer the programme crashes the same way.

 

 Is this a problem with windows or Cura? Does anyone have any ideas about ways around this?

 

Thanks!

Could you try updating your GPU drivers? Until you have added (or selected a previously created) printer, that's the first time Cura tries to draw the printer mesh and the buildplate checkerboard. It would be my guess that your GPU(-driver) has an issue with the buildplate checkerboard shader.

    • "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.
