Cura not calculating

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not calculating

Hello everyone,

I want to print two big models at once. Both of them fit on the buildplate in Cura.

But Cura doesn't calculate the gcode to the end. The loading bar is stuck at ca. 90%.

When I load both files at once into the program, everything is fine. However I want to save time and print both models at once.

What could be the problem?

Edit: I'm using Cura 14.09 and no object is now loading in Cura, no matter what object it is.

Cura has been known to have trouble loading very large models. Does it do the same thing no matter what order you load the models? (implies the two summed together are too large), or is one specific model the problem?

It is no matter what model is loaded first. Only when both are loaded there is a problem with the loading.

So what exactly was the problem? Was it size, or something else?

 

Output GCode size was causing memory fragmentation limits to be reached on windows.

"Memory fragmentation limits in Windows"? That's a new one on me. Are you talking about some feature of your C++ lib?

Python code. 32bit. StringIO.
