    Wow so no one is gonna help? 

    Calm down. People just didn't spot your message. Note that this is the forum of Ultimaker, so most people have experience with Ultimakers, so any help you will get here will be mostly focussed on that.

    Your first point of contact should always be whomever made your machine; They know most about it and should provide you with support if you need it.

    That being said; I don't have your model, so i can't see what the problem is.

    I passed on this one because there isn't any real information.  A project file would be good.  Knowing the Operating System and maybe even the video sub-system would be nice.  Knowing your printer would be a help as well.  Why did you bring up Firewall?  Were there previous issues with your installation?  Is Octoprint involved?

     

    Just providing the Cura.log file might give evidence of the "What" but probably not the "Why" and having to muddle through a 1mb text file is not one of my favorite things.

    Physically large objects should be fine but large files not so much.  Maybe there are too many triangles.  Report back how many triangles there are and try to lower it below say 50,000 triangles:

    @nallath any ideas?

    I gauged the files I use to print from based on file size. I realize that more triangles mean more bits in the file, but I routinely put far more triangles than 50,000 in my sculpts. It is the only way to hold fine details for the type of work I do.

     

    And, yeah, good to have the log file for those that prefer it. But, Greg is right about the project file. The why is so very important.

      • 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
