Hello,

When i try to start cura ( tried it with version 14.01 till 13.10) i get the splash screen and after that it closes. only working version is 12.10...

the error in the output file is:

    Open a CMD window and type "set appdata" and see where your appdata actuall is. Is there something strange about it? I'm going to guess there are non english characters or it points to a network drive or something. Here is mine:

     


    C:\Windows\system32>set appdata
    APPDATA=C:\Users\Otis\AppData\Roaming

    Instead of where mine has "Otis" maybe yours has something like: François? Some non english character? That will mess up python sometimes (cura was written in python).

    If this is the problem a quick fix might be to create a second username with no accents, log into windows with that username and see if the problem with Cura is gone.

    When typing this command i got the error about the variabele not being defined. This is what i did (and it worked)

    Start > Right click on this pc > property's > Advanced systemsettings > Environment variables > New

    (im dutch so menu buttons may be different)

    Then i added a variable with the name APPDATA and the value C:\Users\(My name)\AppData\Roaming

    After that cura worked flawless

    Thanks

    I've also patched up the code so this should no longer happen. However, APPDATA should normally be defined, so it's odd that it was no longer set.

      • 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!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • 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.
