Crashing on preview?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Crashing on preview?

I am having this strange issue with the Cura slicer, where it seems to work fine (mostly), but when I go to preview a slice, both of my monitors go black for a second, and when they come back Cura has closed out. There's no crash report, no sign of something having gone wrong. It's just closed. I've tried rebooting, reinstalling, deleting the cura file in AppData and reinstalling, and nothing I've found through a quick search has given me an answer. Has anyone else experience this? If so, how would I go about fixing it? Thank you.

    Sounds like an issue between Cura and your GPU. Beyond updating your GPU drivers, you could try forcing Cura into GPU "compatibility mode", at the cost of some functionality. In the General preferences in Cura, enable the option to "Force layer view compatibility mode (restart required)".
