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.

      • 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.
