Unable to slice anything in Ultimaker Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Unable to slice anything in Ultimaker Cura

As the tile suggests, I am unable to slice anything in Ultimaker Cura. I've scoured other posts about this, but nothing has worked. I feel like I've tried everything.


Things I've tried include:

  • Updating to the latest version of Cura, and when that didn't work downgrading to several older versions.
  • Updating Windows
  • Updating my drivers
  • Restarting the software
  • Restarting my computer
  • Lowering my firewalls
  • Adding rules in my firewall's inbound and outbound connections for cura.exe and CuraEngine.exe
  • Disabling my anti-virus
  • Installing Cura in a different location
  • Changing numerous settings in the software
  • Changing the printer
  • Changing the object it will try to slice
  • Downloading a test object from Thingiverse in case it was something I was doing wrong in Maya


It might also be important to note that when I try to login to Cura it opens Google Chrome and then says: "localhost took too long to respond. Search Google for localhost 32118 callback. ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT"

No one helped me and nothing worked. I just used the Windows Reset feature to remove all of my programs and reset my computer and reinstalled it after that. Thanks so much for the help.

I fixed my issue by selecting Cura's recommended print settings. And after adjusting the setting I found that the print once at a time setting was causing cura not to slice my models.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
