Cura 4.1.0 will not slice model


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.1.0 will not slice model


I've been trying to slice the attached model with Cura 4.1.0 since yesterday.

The operation says it starts, but the blue button never appears and utlimately the model doesn't slice.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software, experimented with different settings for printing include scale, build plate position and actual print settings.

None of this has worked.

Can you tell me what this issue is?

    It finally opened on my system.  Very slowly as the 3mf file is over 150,000 KB.  The part is larger than the build plate / volume of the UM3 Ext when it did finally open, so it cannot be sliced.  Try posting the the native STL file and I'll give it another try.

    What printer do you have Cura set for?

    thanks for the response.

    I have Cura setup for a JG Aurora A5S  printer. The file I downloaded was in obj. Format however when I convert it to either amf.or stl. Formats the files are still large but fit within the dimensions of my build plate.

    i have experimented with reducing the size of the model to see it of would slice and that didn’t work either. I’m out of town for a couple days. But will post an stl file when I get back.

    could the models complexity be the issue?
