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.

      • 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.
