Ultimaker Cura isn't slicing

Posted · Ultimaker Cura isn't slicing

I'm trying to print 50 of a small part and when I only have one it slices perfectly fine, but when I try and slice all 50, it just doesn't slice.

    I'm guessing it's a memory problem.  You might be able to fix your issue by reducing the number of triangles in your model.  Is this your own model?  What CAD did you use?  Usually when you export to STL (or other mesh format) you can choose the resolution - try making that low.  Also try closing other apps like chrome.  Here's one quick way to lower the number of polygons:



    Anyway it could be something else.  Please post the log file (go to "help" menu in cura).  The log file stores a long history of errors so even though you may have to kill and restart cura it will be helpful.  Maybe tell us what time the error occurred so we don't have to sift through days of non-failures.


    Also please post a project file.  So we can repeat the crash.  Do "file" "save project" and post that file.  It will contain you model and settings and printer settings and which profile you used and filament and the position of every one of your models and so on.

      • 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
