    I trying to use the official .CWS plugin, but am finding the neither UVtools nor my printer (Elfin 1), can read the file. The main issue appears to be the .colour.cws extension.  However, UVtools reports that the slice.config is missing and can't then open the file. That is if it writes anything at all.

    Hi everyone, 
    I tried to change G codes in via "Gcode" in "settings“, but there is no change in printing process. Does anyone know this? 

    I added "G4 P3000;"in interlayer. I hope the platform pauses a few seconsds after each lifting. But the parameter will be ignored.

    After slicing a print I am unable to save it as PMWO. I keep getting an "error to convert 1073741701" or 1073741515...

    How do I solve this I am itching to do my first print?

    Just installed Chitubox 64-bit from the  USB stick that came with my Creality LD-006. It prompted me to update to the latest version (1.7.0 to 1.8.1) but the "Yes" button does not do anything. I tried downloading from the web site and installing, but there are still buttons that just don't seem to do anything. If I go to "Account" and then "Login", clicking the "login" button has no affect on anything. Are there known issues with this version, or the 64-bit executable?

    Would you mind send us a GIF or video? After our test on CHITUBOX 1.8.1 version, we didn't find any problem with the size adjustment.

    Really sorry for the inconvenience.

    This is caused by the failed loading of CAPTCHA in some countries or areas.
    We'll consider switching to another CAPTCHA in the future to fix this.

    Sorry for the error.
    Error code: -1073741701 means you're missing some required .dll files. 
    Please follow the 4th floor of this post to fix this problem.

    If the above methods cannot be solved, you can try the following solutions.

    Mostly missing .dll files reported by Chitubox are belonging to Visual C++ Redistributable.
    Please try to fix it by downloading and installing Visual C++ Redistributable from Microsoft:

    I have some weird problem with Chitubox 1.8.1 (Creality LD-002H printer profile).

    In slice window i see that it shows the feature, but it does not generate the image for it for the printer to print.

    I looks like it thinks that the feature is hollow, but in STL file fusion 360 shows it as solid, and other similar features are rendered and printed just fine...

    Attaching the image... anyone experienced any similar behaviour? any idea how to fix it?

    Cross width value has no effect in 1.8.1. You can set it to 1mm or to 20mm, auto-generated support is identical. For thin high models, the support becomes at places completely flaky because increasing cross width does nothing.

    Since the last update that popped up I cannot create a printable file.  I have a LD002-H and using the same USB drive I can load old print files and they work fine.  All new files are the same .ctb type as the others and all settings in the software seem to be the same but my printer keeps saying it does not recognize the file type.  Since the old print files are the same type I am taking this to mean it is an issue with Chitubox and not the printer.

    I'm frequently losing a lot of work due to the new crash bugs. All new bugs I found with the latest update:

    Epax X10 Mono profile sliced files no longer work. Printer says invalid format. Only solution I found is to use older version of Chitu with same print profile.

    Chitubox crashes 100% of the time when trying to drag and drop a file onto the build plate from the menu at File > Open. Only way to reliable get models onto the build plate without a crash is to drag them in from the Windows File Explorer menu.

    Chitubox crashes often when adding supports to a model and then going back to standard Move tools. I guess I cant support a model while there's a full build plate, I think the two are related.

    Hi, in Elegoo Saturn sometimes the exactly central Y line (extension of the triangle in Chitubox' horizontal plane) is vertically layer-shifted,. That is, it contains sliced contents delayed by several horizontal layers (slices). It causes bugs like here https://www.elegoomars.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=843 or here https://www.reddit.com/r/ElegooSaturn/comments/lcmefe/experiencing_new_printing_error/ (the third photo).

    Possibly a bug caused by large LCD resolution in these printers.

    version 1.9.0 does not apply internal supports in hollow models when using the "+All" button when using the Portuguese language. It only works correctly when the language is in English.

    If I start chitubox 1.9.0 in english and change the language to portuguese the internal support is generated normally. But if you close chitubox with the language defined in Portuguese, when you start the program again with the Portuguese language, the bug happens.
