Asura 2.2 Project Files


#1

So in the latest 2.2 version of Asura I am unable to open a saved .afp project file. It hangs at 90% in the progress bar. I tried multiple models. Are there limitations I’m not aware of?


#2

if you can export to stl, try it again.
If it still hangs at 90%, it may be your model is too large or your PC is not strong enough


#3

It exports to stl and geocode just fine. It just won’t load the project file after the transparently shaded supports have been created and then saved. My computer is very beastly.


#4

So the size of the stl file that I’ve been using is 60 MB and the .apf is 17 MB. I don’t know if asura saves the stl file in with the project file but I would suspect that it is only referencing it. Asura opens the stl just fine if I save it out. I just like the flexibility of changing supports later on without having to replace my stl file(s) on the bed.


#5

the supports are treated like they are a part of the model once you export to stl or gcode. Right now Asura 2.2 don’t have that function yet


#6

hi JP, are you still having that problem with 2.2.1?


#7

Hi, yes I am. If I save out a project file WITHOUT the yellow supports it saves and opens fine. But if I save out a project file WITH the yellow supports it does save out but it hangs on 90% when I try to load it.

Is 2.2.1 supposed to support the saving and loading of the yellow (unfrozen) supports now?


#8

it supposed to.
We spotted some bugs there just now and will fix them
