Graphics Accelerating software bug.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Graphics Accelerating software bug.

So recently i came across a bug whilst i was trying to open CURA 4.6.1.


I had previously had no issues with CURA until i had updated the graphics drivers. Then i kept getting the splash screen crash. Which seems to be a quite common thing with cura. I had tried all the techniques to try and get cura to run past the splash screen. 


Until i figured out. I was running a Graphics Accelerating software for my card when playing video games.


I tend to keep this software on in the background as it usually causes no issue. I currently use GPU Tweak II from Asus. 


Whilst this software is running cura won't make it past the splash screen. One i have turned it off it runs like a dream. 


So this might be worth checking with all other GPU Acceleration software in future. I hope this is a help to the community if this issue arises in the future.


This is the failure with the GPU Tweat turned on




This is the one with it turned off.

      • 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
