Cura 3.6 (also 3.5.1) crash during “Add new printer”

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to use one of the new built-in printer profiles in Cura for my MP Mini Delta. It wasn't in the list previously but seems to have been added around 3.5 or so. When I go to add  it from the list of Other printers. Cura packs up and crashes to desktop. (Win 10) I didn't test this under 3.5.0, but it happened in 3.5.1 and 3.6. My manually created profile is working, but I was hoping to test out the provided profile.


Any tips or tests I can try? Thanks,

Thanks. I'm attaching the Cura and Stderr logs which seem to be most relevant. In both logs, the following error is caught:


2018-11-19 08:18:15,653 - CRITICAL - [MainThread] cura.CrashHandler.__init__ [65]: An uncaught error has occurred!
2018-11-19 08:18:15,655 - CRITICAL - [MainThread] cura.CrashHandler.__init__ [68]: TypeError: unable to convert a Python 'str' object to a C++ 'double' instance


Please advise if these aren't the right logfiles. I just tested adding my Ender-3 from the list and that was uneventful.

    • "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.
