Cura 3.6 Won't Start

Recommended Posts

I'm in need of some help.  My computer won't start Cura 3.6, but will start older versions (15.04.6)

 

The error log is beyond my knowledge (see below).  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks in advance.

My computer is a little dated.  I have an ATI Radeon HD 4500.  I've updated to the latest drivers but it's a Legacy product so there arent any further updates.

 

Could it be that my old GPU just won't work with the new versions of CURA?

With the right driver, the Radeon HD 4000 family should support the OpenGl functionality that Cura requires.You could try an older driver (instead of the latest one), in case the latest one available has a bug. But you are treading unknown territory.

    • "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.
