This file will override machine setting with setting from the slicer

Posted · This file will override machine setting with setting from the slicer

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.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
