Something went wrong during slicing! - or "It's sometimes not easy to be german" ^^

Recommended Posts

Posted · Something went wrong during slicing! - or "It's sometimes not easy to be german" ^^

I created a simple alignment-tool for an 20 year old model-helicopter but I was not able to slice it...

The person who created it has got the name "Schlüter" (was the very first person who ever has flown and built an model helicopter)...

And so I named my alignment tool - "Schlüter Magic Einstell-Lehre.stl"...

I just found out that the "ü" is making the problem at slicing.

Is this a known problem?

Best regards!

Yes - accented and non-English characters cause problems in the Skeinforge back-end that Cura currently uses. Several problems have been fixed, but not all yet. For now, best just avoid them.

>UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xfc' in position 15: ordinal not in range(128

"xfc" means hex FC which is decimal 252 which isn't a standard ascii character.
