"Failed to create final toolpaths"

Sat Dec 22, 2018 1:34 pm

I moved from a Mac to Linux some months ago but hadn't opened Simplify3D yet. I opened Simplify3D (4.1.1) and imported my .fff profile previously exported from the Mac. I then imported a model, edited the process settings accordingly, and tried to slice ("Prepare to Print!"). I got a message in the message area at the bottom of the window: "Failed to create final toolpaths".

I am attaching my .factory file in case it is useful for debugging.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

OK, after a bit of quality time with strace I found that I had a permissions error. $HOME/.local/share/Simplify3D was owned by root (so it seems that at some point I did start it up with sudo). I was having another problem with S3D not saving my settings between sessions, and it was also a permissions problem, this time in $HOME/.config/Simplify3D (adding this one for future Googlers)

Thank you, I just install Simplify on Ubuntu, and got this error on my 1st attempt to print. Saved me too

Inside of the Simplify3D install directory you will find a shell script titled "AddUserPermissions.sh". You can run this script as sudo from your current user account and permissions errors should be resolved. Please let me know how this works for you.

THANK YOU!

$ cd $HOME/.local/share
$ sudo chown -R <user>:<group> ./Simplify3D

Worked like a charm!
