i did, multiple times. I already added other Plugins to my cura, which is why i wonder if there is something I missed, specifically with this plugin.

by the way, I am using Cura 14.12.1 on both Ultimaker 1 and 2. Maybe that helps?

    Can you show me the path where you placed the file? It should be something like this:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_14.12.1\plugins

    Try this:

    - Close Cura

    - Delete this file: C:\Users\<username>\.cura\14.12.1\output_log.txt

    - Open Cura

    - Close Cura

    - Post the content of the output_log.txt file (not more than the last 100 lines please :))

    hi again,

    the path is exactly as you wrote: C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_14.12.1\plugins

    About the txt in the output_log.txt:

    Listening for engine communications on 49674

    Closing down

     

     

    Since you wrote about 100 lines, I wonder if there is the problem.

     

    thanks already

    Hi Taires,

    Any luck getting it to work? Your log doesn't contain any errors.

    Are you sure you are starting the Cura associated with that version? I ask because I usually have 4 different versions installed and sometimes start the wrong one by mistake.

    Can you try with a different version of Cura?

    Hi,

    Yes I know how to fix it. I just need the time to do it. I had the same issue with spiralize mode.

    Hi Nacho,

    I released a new version on youmagine that should fix your issue. I have only tested it a little due to my horrible schedule at the moment.

    I hope this can help you.

    doesn't work for me. when changing from normal mode to spiralized and referring to the normal gcode it still saves it spiralized (cura 15.02.1, tested different paths/ directories).

    I tested it and... works great! :-P (tested with "only follow mesh surface" expert setting in cura 15.02.1)

    Thank you for your efforts. Only that you can't see the final results in the layers view when you apply it. You need to close Cura and open the gcode (previously saved) for watching the result in layers view. If you fix this it would be brilliant.

    Thank you so much for this plugin. I had some infill while I chose infill 0%, but with a solid infill top.

    Thanks to your plugin, my problem is completely solved.
