Start with telling which printer you use, build-plate volume etc.

 

If the object you want to print is bigger as the build-plate volume, Cura will tell you it is unable to slice and you have to adjust the dimension!

 

I have no problems witch "switch-case-back", but "switch-case-v1" is rejected because it runs into restrictions of my build-plate volume. That is wrong, my Ender 3 Pro can print 235x235x250... "switch-case-v1" is 189,7x196.1x150.0... Somewhere in this forum there is a topic with a solution for this, to remove/change the restrictions.

 

So... without more information we really guessing what your problem is...

    Can't find the topic, but found a YouTube movie...

     

    Like in the video I changed profile from Ender 3 to Ender 3 Pro and now I'm able to slice the parts!

    Can you make screenshot of your Cura screen and upload it here? Like to see what you are seeing after loading the object and trying to slice!

     

    I just added you printer to my Cura install... no problem with the files, I'm able to slice them all!  The side-panels RED & BLUE I had to set diagional on the buildplate!

    Rotate the object so it is diagonal on the buildplate... Then it fits!

    If the object is orientated diagonally I should work... Maybe remove printer in Cura and add it again!

     

    Are you able to slice other files than these?

    I just setup Ultimaker Cura. I set up everything, but when I click "slice" it says "Unable to slice. Please review settings and check if your models: -Fit within the build volume. -Are assigned to an available extruder. -Are not all set as modifier meshes." I have checked my settings multiple times and I don't see anything wrong with them. Maybe I just don't see it?

     

    Please help,

    Thanks

    The problem is often with the model.  If you would post the STL file or even better, load the model in Cura and do a "Save Project" and post the 3mf file here.

    When I open the file the "assembly" is at 0,0,0 and hanging off the build plate.  It won't slice because it "doesn't fit the build volume".

    With the model selected, right click and select "Ungroup" from the bottom of the menu.  Then right click again and choose "Select all models".  Then right click yet again and choose "Group models".

    With the new "group" selected - choose the top tool of the left toolbar and make Z, Y, Z all "0".  The model will move onto the build plate and will be sliceable.

    There is only one model in the workspace and you have it set for "overlaps" - but there aren't any overlaps because...like...ya know...there is only one model in the workspace.

     

    Select the model.  In the "Per Model Settings" select "Print as Model".

    The next button down is "Support Blocker".  Select Support Blocker and click somewhere on your model to add one.  They come in at 10x10x10 I think.

    With the support blocker selected select the Scaling tool and turn off "Uniform Scaling".  Drag the handles of the support blocker and make the support blocker larger than your model so it will cover the whole thing.  Rotate the support block and move it as necessary to cover the whole model.  Always rotate last.  Trying to make changes with the blocker (or model) at an angle is odd.  In this case you want the Z of the support blocker to be "0".

     

    Or you could just turn off Generate Support.  The key is that the way you have it set up there is no model, just a mesh modifier.

    There is no "print as model" on mine, "support blocker" doesn't let me add one.

    Tried turning off generate support as well, still cant slice 😞

    I got it to slice by saving it as a 3mf format...

    I think the 3mf format changed it back into a part.

     

    It used to be called Print as Model.  Now it's "Normal Model".

    Well, this will not slice until you place the part in such a way, that it will match with your available print area. The slicer clearly indicate that this isn't the case, your part is overlapping the print area on both sides left and right. A little bit rotating it should help.

    @knownchild, did you open the 3mf I posted above?
