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.
