"Unable to Slice" issue


Recommended Posts

Posted · "Unable to Slice" issue

Hi everyone,


I am a beginner in 3D printing and recently encountered an issue with slicing my model.

I have to enable only extruder 2 as extruder 1 is damaged. The printer model is Ultimaker-3 extended.

However, I am constantly encountering the issue:


"Unable to slice, Please review your settings and check if your models:

1) Fit within the build volume

2) Are assigned to an enabled extruder

3) Are not all set as modifier meshes. 



I have been playing around with the settings menu and changing the orientation but to no avail as I am still rather new to 3D printing.

Seeking everyone's kind guidance on this matter.

    From the picture it looks like your object sits not on the build plate, so bring it down or check in the settings the option to place the model to the build plate automatically.


    And when you have disabled the first extruder check if you have selected an extruder to print. Select the model and then in the options on the left side there are two icons where you can select which extruder should print your selected model.

        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.
