cura 4.7 -> 4.9 crashes at startup

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · cura 4.7 -> 4.9 crashes at startup


for a quite a while, I'm having an issue with Cura. It often crashes during startup, let's say 8 times out of 10.

The issue is caused by some kind of incompatibility of display drivers from Intel. To work around this issue, I've to disable Intel 630 display adapter. 


I know this is most likely caused by bug in Intel drivers, not in Cura. Still, it would be nice, if Cura had at least an option, which would disable using buggy Intel opengl drivers to render Cura GUI.


I'm using cura on MSI GL 63/Windows 10/Nvidia 1050/Intel UHD 630. Let me know, if you need more information about issue.

    Doesn't windows give you an option to "run for best performance" or something like that when you right-click the shortcut to start Cura? That assigns the nvidia GPU to Cura.

    I've not found "run for best performance" option, but NVidia Control panel offers similar functionality. There I can configure  global preferred graphics processor or per application settings.


    If integrated graphics is configured, then Cura crashes immediately.

    With High-performance NVIDIA processor selected, Cura shows splash screen with various loading messages. After a couple of seconds, Cura tries to show main UI, but something goes wrong and it crashes.
