Cura 3.6.0 crashes on menus


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.6.0 crashes on menus



Computer details: HP Zbook 17 G3 running windows 7 Pro x64


Graphics cards:

Intel HD Graphics 530 with driver version

NVIDIA Quadro M2000M with driver version


3D printer: BQ Witbox 2


We can open cura and accept the EULA, but cura crashes on opening any kind of selective menu (toolbar, right click,  material selection).

We can still click open file and open an STL file without issues, same for rotating the preview image.

Tested with anti-virus off and on but there was no difference.


I assumed it was a driver issue, so I tried updating to the latest versions. After installing these, cura wouldn't start at all anymore so this isn't a solution. I believe it's an issue with the Intel HD card, as changing drivers for the NVIDIA has no effect.


I've tried reinstalling and removing the local user folders of cura but this didn't change anything.

Log files are attached, not sure if there's any others I'm missing.


Does opening those menus or right clicking start something specific that causes the crash?

    It does sound like a driver issue. The actual creation / showing/ rendering of the menus is not something we do ourselves, we use an external framework (Qt) for that, so there is little we can do to change that.

      • 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
