Prusa Slicer Suddennly Hanging
I have been happily using PrusaSlicer for some months, always kept it updated, but suddenly today, whenever it tries to export a gcode file, it hangs up. Is anyone else seeing this? I'm not doing anything differently, the files aren't huge, it does it for both Mk3S and SL1 slices, and I have tried a fresh reinstall. Frustrating as I have jobs backing up as I am unable to slice.
Ok, not sure if this is connected, but there was a major Windows update hanging around in the background. I uninstalled PrusaSlicer again, did a disk cleanu, performed the Windows update, and reinstalled PrusaSlicer - all seems to be working correctly again now.
I’m guessing you are running Windows 10. I swear it’s the worse version yet for glitchy problems.
Maybe I can blame it for my typos 🙂 I am running Win10, to be honest I'm generally very happy with it, and I have it running with stability (64 bit), but the PrusaSlicer issue today was baffling.
MS Office for Windows has the same problem as you experience with PrusaSlicer - if an update is pending I often get wired MS Office behavior until the update is installed and Windows restarted. I think it has to do with the Window update system and not the affected application.
Try setting the resolution to 0.1 mm or 0.2 mm:
- Enable expert mode
- Printer settings -> Advanced -> resolution -> set to 0.1 mm or 0.2 mm
