preparing G-code

By using Cura 4.13.1, I can not export a printfile to a g-code because of the error:
Could not save f:/UMO_palmtree-2-final/gcode. Please prepare G-code before exporting.

 

What do I have to do? And how??

    You have to press the "Slice" button in the lower right.

    I am not sure what you mean.

    You brought a model into Cura, sliced it, and when you hit the save button on the lower right that message came up?

    Yes, exactly that!

    To A. Hoeben
    I did the slice, but that didn't work either (see picture)

     

    It fits in the printing space,

    Assigned to the extruder I have

    No idea what is meant by "set as modifier meshes"...

     

    In short.. help!

    See that pointy gray "shadow"? That needs to fit inside the build volume. The model is striped to show that Cura thinks it does not currently fit inside the buildvolume. There seems to be a "stray" point or piece of geometry in the file. Can you post a link to the model?

    I got the design from Thingiverse. 
    but I guess that I can place it correctly by replacing it on the plate.
