Cura 3.6 has stopped slicing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.6 has stopped slicing

I have encountered a problem with Cura 3.6 on Ubuntu.

I have been using it (and previous versions) for over a year and it has been working beautifully.

However, I opened it yesterday and everything works fine until it starts slicing, when it stops (with no messages) about a quarter of the way through. Slicing time stays at 0:00, I can't save the file and it just stays there no matter how long I leave it open. I have attached a screenshot.


I uninstalled Cura, removed all config and related files I could find, reinstalled it and the same thing is happening.

Does anyone have any ideas?

    Without logs, there is nothing I can do to diagnose your problem.

    can confirm this trouble, sclicing seems to be ok, printing is fine, but not visible on screen, versions 3.6 and 4.0 Beta 2 on Win10, i think this is an Win auto-update issue 36 hours ago here, maybe Win's graphic-drivers. The problem is, you can see only the actual slices alongside with the move of the slider 1..xxx, but not the complete sliced result.... where can i find the logs in Cura ?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
