Posted · Need some assistance, please

Hello, I recently downloaded Cura software and sliced my print project. When I went to load the G-code file to the removable disc in my computer I got the error message "There are no file formats to write with". Can someone please explain, in detail, as to what I need to do to fix this situation? Thank you in advance

    Windows?  Mac?  Linux?

    Is the memory card new?  Are you able to copy files to it using your normal method (not going through Cura)?  What I mean is, can you copy a file from a folder and paste it onto the memory card?

    Have you tried re-formatting the memory card?

    Yes the memory card is new. I got the card when I purchased the printer. The error appears in Cura after I am done slicing the file and I want to transfer the file to the flash drive. Many thanks for you attempt to help me. I am not even close to being a newbie so any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

    The "Slice" button has different functions depending on...stuff.  If the memory card is plugged into the computer then the default is "save to removeable drive removeable drive :X".  At the right end of the button is an arrow.  Click on the arrow and you can select from other options.  One is "Save to Disc" which is your hard drive.  That will bring up a regular "SaveAs" dialog.  After saving, a popup will appear in Cura and ask if you want to open the folder.  With the folder open you can copy and paste the file to the memory card.

    If the above doesn't work then I think it might be an operating system problem talking to the card slot.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
