This file will override machine setting with setting from the slicer

Recommended Posts

I just purchased an Ultimaker 2 Extended and downloaded the Cura 15.04.2 software. I also updated the firmware of the printer after I downloaded the Cura software.

I have been successful printing every object from the Memory Card shipped with the printer.

My Problem comes when I try to print my own a solid works file (.STL). Anything I save from the Cura software (including resaving the good files from the memory card) gives me the setting error and the best the machine will do is raise the plate and send the head to the full forward stop.

I have tried quickprint settings, various Expert settings, different Gcode Flavors nothing works.

Any advice? I must be missing something.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
