Posting this solution in case someone else runs into the same issue.

 

  • In Cura, choose Preferences > Configure Cura.
  • Near the top of the options, check "Slice Automatically."

 

It's as simple as that. As soon as I changed that setting, Cura sliced, and I had a project that was ready to evaluate.

Or... press the "Slice" button.

 

The "Slice Automatically" setting has been enabled by default for quite a while now. There's also a message to tell you the model needs to be sliced if there is no layer data, but it has an option to not show that message again, so you may have hidden it before.

    Hey @libertyhouseplans,

     

    I just realized you might be seeing another bug. 

    If you have adaptive layerheights enabled, but you have empty first layers; you'll see this:

    Was that what you were seeing?

    If you disable adaptive layerheights or if you enable drop to builldplate, it should be resolved.

    @MariMakes Yes - there was no option to slice. It looked like that. Struck me as a bug.

     

    I didn't have adaptive layerheights enabled, though. The only way I could get it to slice was to Slice Automatically.
