slicing failed

Posted · slicing failed

I bough a model on etsy but this is the only file that wont let me slice, i tried to see if the other part had problems but this is the only one, i tried to do everything to repair it in case it was corrupted, but every slicer didn't find anything. I tried to convert it i OBJ but it still on't let me slice it. If any of you could help me resolve it i would be very gratefull.

I'm using the latest version of cura 5.2.1 but i had the same problem on the previous version.

    I didn't have any trouble with the Windows version of 5.2.1.

    The model is very high resolution.  It can be simplified in MS 3D Builder.  A level 1 simplification will make a big difference in file size and complexity that the slicers have to deal with.

    This is your model.  The slice took a while but it did finish.
