Cura not slicing models

Recommended Posts

Hey Y'all

I have the problem that cura doesn't slice any of the models, when i load a model into cura it does show the calculating bar but dissapears within a few seconds and stops slicing the model, i already tried reinstalling cura, removing all old versions and reinstalling, but nothing seems to work. (also it didn't matter what version i was using, the same problem keeps appearing)

Hope someone can be of any help

The log file should be in the folder where you installed cura (for windows atleast).

Cura uses a local connection to connect with the slicer engine. There have been cases where firewall settings messed with that connection (which prevents slicing)

Okay, so i wasn't able to find the log file BUT i found that it indeed does have something to do with the firewall, i turned the firewall of to see what happens and guess what.. cura slices again.

Now i don't want my firewall turned of, but can't find how i can use another firewall setting for cura..
