I cant seem to get larger files to slice for cura 4.9.1. I made sure that the engine could get through the firewall but still wont slice. I have attached the log file. Someone please help thanks again.

    Wow so no one is gonna help? 

    Calm down. People just didn't spot your message. Note that this is the forum of Ultimaker, so most people have experience with Ultimakers, so any help you will get here will be mostly focussed on that.

    Your first point of contact should always be whomever made your machine; They know most about it and should provide you with support if you need it.

    That being said; I don't have your model, so i can't see what the problem is.

    I passed on this one because there isn't any real information.  A project file would be good.  Knowing the Operating System and maybe even the video sub-system would be nice.  Knowing your printer would be a help as well.  Why did you bring up Firewall?  Were there previous issues with your installation?  Is Octoprint involved?

     

    Just providing the Cura.log file might give evidence of the "What" but probably not the "Why" and having to muddle through a 1mb text file is not one of my favorite things.

    Physically large objects should be fine but large files not so much.  Maybe there are too many triangles.  Report back how many triangles there are and try to lower it below say 50,000 triangles:

    @nallath any ideas?

    I gauged the files I use to print from based on file size. I realize that more triangles mean more bits in the file, but I routinely put far more triangles than 50,000 in my sculpts. It is the only way to hold fine details for the type of work I do.

     

    And, yeah, good to have the log file for those that prefer it. But, Greg is right about the project file. The why is so very important.
