This file will override machine setting with setting from the slicer

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

I've printed successfully last week. For a project I have 1 last out of nice pieces that I need to print, but today I always get this error "This file will override machine setting with setting from the slicer". Unfortunately it is completely beyond me why this happens. I googled for it, but I don't do anything fancy:

* I removed the printer profile and readded the ultimaker 2

* UltiGCode is selected

* I use quick print

* I resetted the profile

* Now I even install cura_15.04.5-debian_amd64.deb on a different machine

The error is emitted from this code in the firmware


But when I look at the GCode files, they start like this:








;Layer count: 14



G0 F9000 X101.773 Y101.776 Z0.300


G1 F1800 X104.624 Y99.588 E0.43126



So the error should actually not show up. I've also tried to update the firmware, but that does not work (https://ultimaker.com/en/community/20303-update-firmware-from-linux). If this is a April-1st joke it is 2 days too early. Any tips or ideas?

    You usually get this message if you have sliced the file for the wrong printer type, e.g. if you have sliced the model for an Ultimaker Original but are trying to print on a UM2.

    OH-MY-GOD. By sheer coincidence I noticed that by using another SD card printing worked again, with the same files on it. Then I compared the cards and noticed on is formatted as fat16 and one as fat32. The fat16 formatted disk shows the above symptoms.

    After searching for fat16 vs. fat32 I also found other users having the same problem. Now I wonder why the manual states that fat16 works, if obviously it does not. Also why the hell is this not fixed? The error that the user gets is so arbitrary that figuring out that this is due to fat16 is next to impossible. I almost decided to get rid of the printer due to that.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
