Posted · Cura freezing

Ok guy please don't five me grief.

I have a home built machine with Marlin Firmware - been working great for months with previous version of Cura (what ever was the last one 3.3?).  It has suddenly started freezing.

printer works with Pronterface but then still freezes with cura again.  As its a home built machine i'm using USB to connect with the printer.

windows 7 64 bit

 

I can load a print, Prepare it, press print via USB, monitor the temperature rising to levels bed and extruder. then nothing - it freezes.

Application hasn't as i can still cancel the print

if i start the print again - it happens all over again

 

Pc is not on a network and has avoided microsofts constant annoying updates

 

any help would be gratefully appreciated

    I have a similar issue with Cura 3.4.0. It will print the first 4 or 5 layers and then just stop. I un-installed Cura 3.4.0 and re-installed 3.3.1 and have not seen the freezing problem since. I'm running a home built Prusa RepRap with a very recent version of Marlin. My PC is Windows 10 x64, and I'm printing via USB.

     

    As mentioned in the original post, Cura still runs, and the print can be cancelled, but pause/resume will not get it going again.

     

    Any news on this issue would be greatly appreciated! Until then, I'm going to run older versions.
