Cura crashes when I try to open file

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded Cura 3.6 on a different computer, and whenever I hit "open file" it freezes for one second then closes the program.  It does the same on other Cura versions except ver15.  I'm on windows 10.


Any suggestions?

@gerb Check my post here.  Sadly from my knowledge there is no known fix but I went through a couple possible fixes that might help out with your problem. To list the basic ones, Reboot pc, Update graphics drivers, disable anti-virus, check firewall settings and exempt Cura, then possibly uninstalling and deleting all config files and then reinstalling.

    • "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.
