MC gets stuck writing layers



  • Upgraded to 1.6.2. When I export to g-code, more time than not MC gets stuck "writing layers." In the particular case, 7/35 layers. It's a very simple file. I have to restart and try again and sometimes it does the same or writes so quickly I don't even see the "writing layers" stage.

    Happens on 2 different computers (one Win 7 Pro , the other Win 10)


    Any ideas?

    Post your STL file and exported slice settings and we can have a look at it.



  • Thanks for taking a look.
