Slicer problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · Slicer problem

Hi,

I use an Ultimaker 3 Extended and 2 Extended + and dowloaded Cura 3.2.1. With many different shapes (from Thingiverse and drawn shapes on Catia, all imported as .stl) all fail to be sliced by Cura. I just have "Slicing...." and am unable to look at the Layer view: my shape is shown in grey but I cannot look at the layers. Saving the file as a gcode is possible but I have not tested printing a shape yet.

I have tried activating "Force Layer view compatibility mode" and dowloading a previous version of Cura (2.7) but neither were successfull. I have also tried uninstalling Cura and re-downloading the 3.2.1 version which also didn't work.

I have read different blog stating that there were problems with Windows 10 on which I am, and I now other people where Cura seemed to take an awfully long time to slice. 

Do you please have suggestions?

Thank you!
