Unable to slice


Recommended Posts

Posted · Unable to slice

I'd like to slice 3 equally parts with the printcore 2 (AA 0.8) with the filament extrudr GreenTec Pro (diameter 2.85mm). Printcore 1 is therefore disabled, printcore 2 enabled.

I always get the message "unable to slice" and "that I should check if my models are not all set as modifier meshes" .

Can anybody help?


Thanks in advance

    Hey @zumstkl,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉


    Your file seems to be greyed out. That usually means that there is something preventing it from being printed. 
    What I can see from your screenshot is that your first extruder is disabled. 
    Did you assign your models to your second extruder if that is the extruder you want to print with? 
    You can do that by clicking the model, and clicking the extruder on the left under the manipulation tools. 

    Hope this helps 🙏

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
