error using ultimaker cura - "unable to slice"


Recommended Posts

Posted · error using ultimaker cura - "unable to slice"


I installed ultimaker cura to my computer and after i put an item into it and press "prepare" it doesn't work.

Instead, it writes a message on the screen "Unable to slice, unable to slice with the current material as it is incompatible with selected machine or configuration". (the print screen is attached)

I tried to change materials and reinstalling the software and still i cant figure whats the problem..

if anyone know what should i do to solve it i will be grateful!

Thank you,

    I am having the same problem with my new Ultimaker 3 and Cura 3.6.  I'm using Ultimaker Silver PLA in extruder 1 and Natural PVA in extruder 2.  Cura recognizes the Ultimaker 3 and detects that it has Extruder 1 and Extruder 2. 


    Both materials are selected correctly in the Cura sidebar but there is a warning saying to "Check Compatability".  These materials are valid in the chart on the Ultimaker website. 


    I have a simple STL imported that is small and in the center of the build plate.   I am using "Recommended" as my Print Setup.

    I've not been able to figure out what is wrong and need help.

    If the printer is connected, you can click the arrow in the upper right to set the configurations accordingly to the printer setup.

      • 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.
