Cura 3.5.1 not starting on Mac OS 10.9.5

Recommended Posts

The program is in the Program folder, first time the Mac asked me, if I want to start Cura, because, it is from the internet. I agreed. Then the symbol appears, and is gone within 1-2 seconds.

The next programstarts same procedure, the GUI will not appear. A SpashScreen with VersionNumber is also not visible.

And before you ask: Mac is rebooted ... thx for help

Not 100% sure, but I think you have to use an older version of Cura which is still working with Maverick. Your OS is quite old and as far as I know with 3.5 there was a change to a new version of a library which is not working anymore with older version of MacOS.

    • "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.
