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.

    I'm assuming that you've already selected the UM2 Extended as the machine you're using. Also, you should be using "UltiGCode" unless you're trying to do something fancy with the start&end code. It's when you aren't using "UltiGCode" that this warning pops up.

    Yes. I am saving the GCode to the SD Card that came with the Printer.

    I find it interesting that if I pull in the working object from the SD Card (like the Ultimaker robot) and I resave it with the default settings in Cura that it now will not print.

    In case anyone is watching this thread for a solution, I found it.

    The saved GCode files from Cura must be save to the UNENCRYPTED FOLDER of the SD Memory card. You can access that folder on the printer. All issues were resolved.

    I knew it had to be something easy.
