Cura 3.3.1 does not start, win 10

Recommended Posts



I have just installed Cura on a Lenovo T430 laptop and tried to start it. However, after the splashscreen and displaying the disclaimer, cura.exe stops to work, Windows closes the program.

I have added my stderr file.

I have not done any changes and also tried to re-start with deleted cura folder in my local folder.

I still expiring the same Problem. The previews Version did start but did not found my Printer and 3.3.1. does not start even.

Tried to start it as a Admin and other stuff, no way to open it on windows 10 x64. Feel mad i am bound to Repetier Host since many month, because i expire bugs any time in a new Version. Feeling a bit mad about, because i was realy interested to test the Ironing function with a Flat Head Sapphire Prototype Noozle...

my issue was solved by upgrading the graphics drivers. Since 2.3.1 Cura is using a newer version of open-GL. If oyur problems started with later versions, that might not be the solution.

I do not contact the printer from Cura, I use an octopi for that.

    • "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.
