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?

        (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.
