Posted · Unable to slice any models

Greeting everyone I have been 3d printing for a little while now. Everything been great till now.  I have not been able to get Cura to slice anymore even models which sliced perfectly.  I do not know if I accidently changes a setting or something. and see no way to reload all print defaults.  It does not matter what printer I chose get error "slicing failed with unexpected error, please consider reporting error.  


I have attached a smiple name plate which gives me same error is well with the build plate of my anycube or ender 3 max.   any help would be greatly appricated.

    Thank you Diving Duck for the help but I downloaded your saved project  opened both as a project and a model. Can not get either to slice.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled Cura 5.2.2 a couple of time and still have the same issue.  click slice progress bar comes up never moved then get the same message. 

    I do not know what changed on cura but 95% of the time it will not slice.

    You can delete/rename the configuration folder as ultima ratio, but make a backup of the folder before so that you can go back if you want to (in case you delete the folder).

    -->Help -->Show Configuration Folder or manually you find the location here:


    Each former installed version have it own folder within this location (like 4.13, 5.0, 5.1, 5.2)

    Next time you start Cura it will ask you to select a printer and create a new folders with standard values. In case there are already older versions available Cura tries to take over the configuration of the latest version instead of creating a new default set of files.


    In addition I would check the log files if there is any problems shown. The locations are:




    AppData is a hidden folder, you may need to tell your file explorer to show those hidden files and folders. https://www.google.com/search?q=explorer+view+show+hidden+files+in+Windows

      • 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
