Cura shuts down


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura shuts down


I have, until recently, been using another slicing software.

Now that I've upgraded my 3D printer to use a 2-in-1 extruder/hotend, I've had to look at using something else that would be able handle such an assembly.

Having already got Cura 4.10 (used as ancillary for Autodesk Fusion 360, in order to create STL files), I have found that i am having a problem opening files.

(This also happening with Cura 4.11 and Cura 4.12).


Open Cura...any above versions.

I click on either File/Open file(s) or Open file icon (top left). I navigate to relevant folder and click on required file. After a few seconds Cura shuts down. This scenario also sometimes happens  whilst navigating to relevant folder.

 Anyone any idea what's going on here?

    Same problem here Tom. I did post this on the "Report a Bug" tab of the new version. We'll see what happens. ; )


    I also clicked on Help - Show Configuration Folder - And nothing happens.   ??

    Thanks for that. I uninstalled the Chitubox thumbnail preview and Cura is doing what it's supposed to do.


    I still need Chitubox for my other printer, and I'm hoping that the above solution has addressed another Issue I've been having since installing Chitubox, i.e. computer randomly giving a "black screen of death" if I've used Chitubox that day.


    Anyway, many thanks for your help.

    I uninstalled Chitubox and it works now.

    Thank you.


    It's too bad we have to modify or remove a working program to make another program work. Is it a problem with Cura or a problem with Chitubox?

    Is either company trying to come up with a fix?
