Issue with Cura's gcode not working with octoprint?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Issue with Cura's gcode not working with octoprint?

This occurred all of a sudden, I'm getting an "internal server error" from Cura, when trying to upload gcode, it also fails when I try to upload a saved file to octoprint directly, so it doesn't seem to be an issue with Cura communicating with the server, and a test with same stl's sliced in slicer uploads/prints fine. The only change is a switch to a larger nozzle, but the problem doesn't seem to be the printer or octoprint, as both are functioning normally.


I have a feeling it's something in Cura's configuration, but can't figure it out. If anyone has any advice, that would great.

    Internal server error is generally used for when the server crashed during the handling of the request. It could be that the g-code does something to trigger it, but I'd say that the issue primarily is with the server.

    The octoprint logs should include details about the server errors. If you post a link to them, so I can download them and have a look, perhaps we can see what is going on.


    It seems Cura wasn't allowed to put files in the upload folder. I changed the permissions, which seems to have resolved it.


    It's very strange, as it happen spontaneously, and only affected the gcode files made in Cura.
