Cura crashing on ASUS Ryzen machines at startup


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura crashing on ASUS Ryzen machines at startup

I thought I'd come and share I hope a work around if your CURA is crashing at start up on ASUS Ryzen machines at start up of cura.


I decided to install Prusa slicer in hope I could get back to printing and I was hit with an error advising a DDL that gets injected by A-Volute installed in C:\ProgramData\A-Volute. 

This is the sonic pad software installed by ASUS and there drivers. What one I can't say without doing some research but I uninstalled and now Cura is working again


All i did was uninstall sonic pad 3 and then launch Cura without rebooting. This now seems to work!


Hoepfully this helps someone!

    • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
      (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

      This update is for...
      All UltiMaker S series  
      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.

    • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
      Cura now supports Method series printers!
      A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
