Cura Software Crashing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Software Crashing



I'm fairly new to the 3D printing scene. I need help with my Cura software. After slicing, when I attempt to save the file Cura shuts down. The file is saved but it is not the complete GCODE. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Cura; it still crashed. I tried updating Windows from 10 to 11; it still crashed. 


Surface Pro 7

Windows: 11

Cura: 3.6.0

Printer: Creality CR-30

Logs attached.

    Wow that sucks.  Maybe you just have a really big STL file?  Too many triangles?  How big is the file in bytes or in triangles?


    You can reduce the number of triangles using some easy-to-use and free software (e.g. meshlab).  I like to keep it under 100,000 triangles (typically 6MB) but cura can usually handle a million just fine.  I've seen plenty of STL files with 100 million triangles which is silly.

        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.
