File Format Incorrect


Recommended Posts

Posted · File Format Incorrect

Recently updated a Solidworks Part file (.SLDPRT), saved as (.stl), opened on Ultimaker Cura 4.13.1 and made a ufp file for the printer.

However previous file names start with UM2C_NAME.ufp while the files today starts with UM2_NAME.ufp


An error message pops up as I select the ufp file on the printer:

"The format of this file is incorrect. Please slice the print again with the correct printer and material settings."


I'm pretty sure it's a problem related to the software setting but I can't seem to find the solution. Please help.

    Seems you sliced the file with the wrong printer profile UM2(+) instead of UM2+Connect.

    Check your printer configuration in Cura if you really have the correct printer.
