Unable to slice any models


Recommended Posts

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.

    I am fairly new and have adjusted some of the print settings I am thinking I have something out but it is not my build plates dimensions.  Is there a way to load all cura factory defaults?

    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

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
