cura 2.1.2 no image when open stl file

Recommended Posts

Posted · cura 2.1.2 no image when open stl file

hi i am brand new to 3d printing

i downloaded cura 2.1.2

 

i have windows vista 32bit laptop

amd athlon 64

ati radeon

 

when i open a stl file in cura nothing shows up in the image workspace........no grid....no part.....just white space

 

it goes through slicing process and then says save file but there is no object in the workspace....so i cant see what my  part is suppose to look like

 

what am i doing wrong?

We don't really support 2.1.2 (or anything of similar age) anymore. I'm afraid your only fix is to upgrade your laptop/desktop to a 64 bit machine and download the latest version of Cura (3.2).

Hi

 

i appreciate your input, however im not going to spend hundreds of dollars just to be able to use a free program lol

 

and fyi version 2.1.2 was designed for 32 bit windows so it should work with 32 bit windows correct?

 

guess what my fix was?....very simple...i downloaded slicer....and guess what?.....it worked

 

thank you

Good for you! You can always try legacy Cura (15.x) if you're up for it :p
