ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in position 61:

Recommended Posts

While trying to slice a file, Cura goes "something went wrong during slicing!", and on the last line of the report, it says:

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in position 61: ordinal not in range(128)

Does this make any sense to anyone?

I run Cura on a new W7 computer, and have just updated to Cura 12.12

The file was modelled in SolidWorks.

The entire report:

File C:XXXXX is being chain exported.

Carve procedure took 4 seconds.

Preface procedure took 1 second.

Inset procedure took 17 seconds.

Fill procedure took 39 seconds.

Speed procedure took 1 second.

Raft procedure took 17 seconds.

Skirt procedure took 1 second.

Comb procedure took 1 second.

Cool procedure took 2 seconds.

Dimension procedure took 1 second.

    • "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.
