Windows Error when Slicing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am getting an error in the Command Window when trying to slice in Cura (RC3 and RC4). I am using XP installed in Parallels on a Mac. This is the first time I have tried to slice anything on this machine.

My Steps:

1. Load STL

2. Edit Slicing Parameters

3. Slice Model

Cura Response:

1. Bar appears on the bottom and says "Starting..."

2. Command Window Updates with the following:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\modular_universal_joint.stl 0

Exception in thread Thread-2:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Program Files\Cura_RC4\python\lib\threading.py", line 552, in __boots

Any Ideas?

Hi,

to confirm for others, on my first attempt with CURA (on a 'clean' vm of XP32), the Cura window just showed the status "Starting..."

but (eventually) in the dos window I noticed several errors, with the last "WindowsError 14001"

Downloading the 2008 redistributable and running that the allowed the GCode to build (quickly)

Cheers

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
