Updated from v4 to v5 and slicing just stops now


Recommended Posts

Posted · Updated from v4 to v5 and slicing just stops now

I updated the version for MacOS from V4 to v5. When I did a slice of a modest model using V4 it completed the slice within a minute without trouble. When I updated to v5 and loaded the same model, and asked for a slice with the same config for the same printer, v5 starts but hangs halfway through slicing and blows the CPU usage to 100% plus plus...


Is there something I should know about this update? Am I naively thinking I could just exchange V4 for v5 and go to town? Any hot tips about how to migrate from v4 to v5 for me? I am glad to tinker a bit, but clearly this is a problem I was not prepared for.

    Sorry your having issues..
    First I recommend making sure your system supports v5 - system requirements etc changed on that release.

    Additionally one of the main changes of the v5 update... was well a full update to the core slicing engine which rendered most v4 profiles useless and in some cases broken. You might need to rebuild your profiles.

        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.
