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?

    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.

        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.
