Cura 4.9 doesnt slice

Posted (edited) · Cura 4.9 doesnt slice

I just installed Cura 4.9 on my windows10 pro machine.   I've had Cura 4.8 running just fine until now, so I wanted to use the new cura 4.9

However, once I uninstalled 4.8 and installed version 4.9, I cannot slice anything anymore.  Not even a small 20mm cube stl file.  As I click the Slice button, it stays there forever, as if stuck in an endless loop.

 

I checked firewall settings (as I saw some posts online hinting to that as the cause) and even set a firewall rule that Opened up cura just in case.

 

No luck thus far, so I will have to either uninstall 4.9 and go back to 4.8 or find the reason this is happening and a cure to this cura.    I don't think I will be the only one with this issue.  

Hoping for a cure soon.

Thanks

Mike

    I am experiencing the same issue and am attaching the log. I was running 4.5 just fine but suddenly it stopped slicing so I updated to version 4.9 but am still unable to slice.  I am running Windows 10.

    Your firewall is blocking connection to the slicing.

I am running windows 10 in windows 7 compatibility view, ive been using cura for over a year with no issues then all the sudden it just doesn't slice at all, the slice loading bar doesn't move, I was using 4.4 so I removed it and installed 4.9.1 and still the same issue.

    Your firewall / VPN is preventing the connection to the engine. Try disabling those (or preferably; add an exception).

    I uninstalled the VPN, added exceptions, and even turned the firewall off and it still won't slice 😕

     

    Update!!! Cura is now slicing again!!!

    Thank you everyone for your help!!

    I have the same issue: Cura won't start slicing.

    I am runnig Windows 10, no VPN but with an active firewall (ZoneAlarm).

     

    I have made a minimal logfile here with the following actions done on my part:

    • Loaded my model (OK).
    • Rescaled it to 30% (OK).
    • Started slicing (ERROR).

    If I have to enable some program in my firewall I would be happy if you could tell me the name of the process / program that I must enable.

    So, I got Cura to slice by doing this in ZoneAlarm:

    1. Disabled MOBILITY - Identity Lock (normaly this is set to Medium).
    2. Disabled Basic Firewall by turning it OFF.
    3. Disabled Application Control by turning it OFF.

    Cura was then able to slice. But this is not a satisfactory solution as I expose my computer while doing this.

    Could you please consider a better solution?

    Generally you can tell your firewall what programs to exclude. I don't have experience with doing that, since i'm on Linux

    @Bwijering You have a different problem. It seems that you manually added a printer definition that doesn't work with the version of Cura that you have.

      • 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
