Random "unable to slice" message, but still slices

Recommended Posts

Posted · Random "unable to slice" message, but still slices

I first has auto slicing enabled.

Randomly, after changing any number at all, it would say "unable to slice", but after a few seconds it would just go ahead and slice.

 

I then changed from auto slicing to manual.

 

Then I noticed that again, the random "unable to slice" message would happen as well.

 

Again, changing any number, even layer height.. .anything.  But not every single time.

 

Then I noticed if I made a change and clicked the Slice button, rather than the area changing to indicate it's going to slice, it just stayed the same.

So one would think the button didn't press and therefore, we'd press again.

 

This almost always caused the "unable to slice" message.

 

Again, it would pause for a few seconds then start to slice without an issue at that point.
