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.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
