Cura 4.12 not slicing properly

Posted · Cura 4.12 not slicing properly

Have been having the same issue where cura 4.12 just gets stuck on slicing. couple days ago i fixed it by completely reinstalling cura, including the files in local and roaming.

But now that did not do anything anymore. If i look at the logs it looks like it finishes slicing but my program just keeps showing the same slicing... message.

am slicing for an ender 3V2 but it doesnt slice anymore on anything now. the model that might have caused this is attached. its a modified bendy rex.

Windows 10, very new hardware(if specifics are needed let me know).

    There aren't any problems with the model and I didn't have any trouble slicing it.  What "very new" hardware are we talking about?  There have been issues with at least one model of motherboard and CPU.

    You overlooked this line:

     

    2022-01-02 18:07:19,410 - DEBUG - [EngineErrorThread] UM.Backend.Backend._backendLog [110]: [Backend] [ERROR] Could not connect to the given address


    This is usually due to overzealous firewalls or virus scanners. We've also seen that certain VPN configurations can cause this

    B550 AORUS ELITE V2 mobo , AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, amd rx5700XT . I only mention that because Ive had some issues with kernels and firmware for my mobo on my linux installation. But might not be relevant.

    From the searching I did that was also a possible solution i came across. I've tried manually allowing the program through windows firewall since I don't use any other antivirus.Is there any other steps i could do? I do have surfshark VPN but its basically never on?

    Yesterday i sliced some stuff and printed; but today it is again just stuck at the infinite loop. log attached again for perhaps some new info.
    *Edit, if its firewall issues why doesnt running it as admin solve it?

     

    Thank you for answering, ive been using cura for a long time and really hope to get this issue resolved 😉

     

    cura.log

     

    **EDIT i made a new log after i shut down my (not running) vpn, since I didn't see the same error in the log.
    I was trying to reproduce that same line , and i marked where it freezes and where it continued logging after i pressed CANCEL on the program itself. hope this is helpful.cura.log

    added log that does not have aforementioned error message.

    Posted · Cura 4.12 not slicing properly

    This is the most similar post to my situation I've found so I will reply here with my findings.
    I'm new to Cura (another post Christmas 3D Printer noob) and was having to resort to a separate machine just for Cura slicing 😅


    Issue: Cura hangs during slicing
    Root cause: Surfshark VPN on Windows 10 (Specific configuration)
    Something in the virtual network adapter that is created in Windows 10 impedes the correct communication with 127.0.0.1:49674, blocking the Cura Slice process/button to function.

    The weird behavior is:
    If you install Cura, with VPN on or off, it works until you reboot, making trouble-shooting much more difficult.

    Disable Surfshark VPN - Has no effect, slice fails
    Disable windows firewall - Has no effect, slice fails

    What I found for my situation that might help:
    I use selective VPN application, were only certain apps are forwarded thru the tunnel.
    By disabling the Bypasser or playing around with the configs to maintain my initial logic I got Cura to slice again.

    Settings > Connectivity > Bypasser


    This works:

    Other combinations can start to get fails again so I won't go into detail here. I'll have to figure out what works for me but the important part was to get slicing again.


    Hope this helps someone in the future.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
