Cura exports empty Gcode files when using dual materials.

Posted · Cura exports empty Gcode files when using dual materials.


I hope someone here can help me with this problem.

The issue is, if I try to save or export sliced G-code that uses both hotends, Cura gives an error message containing only the number 0 and exports a completely empty G-code file. if I export G-code that uses only one hotend, everything works correctly. I am using a M1 Mac Mini and modified Anyicubic Mega S. I have tried upgrading and downgrading Cura as well as updating my computer.

Attached is the log file from Cura

    Maybe the "Linear Advanced" Plugin does not work with more than one extruder in this particular case?
