Model selection bug 4.8 in Mac OS Big Sur

Recommended Posts

Posted · Model selection bug 4.8 in Mac OS Big Sur

Having a weird bug once in a while. 


I can use Cura 4.8 just fine, then when I send the print to the printer to the network via DuetRRF plug-in, sometimes it crashes when the print is done sending (after the send to printer dialog) but the print does send and goes to the printer. 


Sometimes, I get a bug where I can no longer select the model on the print area after the print sends. I need to quit Cura and start it again. 


Cura 4.8.0

Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1 final

Duet RRF version 1.0.11

    Now it doesn't crash anymore, but still i cannot click anything on the build plate after sending a print. Does the same thing with a save to file as well as a send to printer via RepRap plugin.

    Temp Fix...


    Piggybacking off the plugin suggestions, without installing another plugin, when you encounter the unselectable model error, you can go into "Ultimaker > About Ultimaker Cura" in the menu on the mac, which opens a popup. Close it and now your model is selectable and you lose none of your edits, supports, etc.


    Hope that helps. I've lost so much work in the past. Working on a model for half an hour adding supports, and then having to restart. No bueno. Hope this helps you guys! Take care.
