Slic3r 0.8.3 Error
June 18, 2012 09:39PM

I just updated Slic3r from a working 0.8.2 and had the following error.

Whilst slicing a model with slightly modified settings that I used in 0.8.2, it was running through the 'slicing/generating infill/etc' process when and Error window came up with:
"Exiting subroutine via last at
c:/....Pronterface/Slic3r/lib/std/Slic3r/Print.pm line 571."

A gcode file was generated, and I'm running it on the printer right now, but I'm not a Python guy so I don't know how to track this error down or what it means.

Has anyone had anything similar? I installed the Slic3r upgrade using the same method that worked for 0.8.2 for me before.

Just following this up now that the print has finished.

The print went fine, however when the print finished, the additional g-code to turn the print head/build platform heaters off, fan off, and home the X/Y axis and turn off the motors wasn't executed.

This wasn't a problem with gcode generated by the previous version (0.8.2) and the additional gcode settings were left untouched.

Thanks Sound! I have used 0.8.4 now and it slices and prints now! Thanks for the great work grinning smiley

(I've also since found the github issues list, so I'll look there first in the future)

This error is not completly gone!
In version 0.8.4-dev using [www.thingiverse.com]
I have to disable the "Lift Z" to get my printing done.

Other stl-files can have values other then zero for "Lift Z" ...
