No info available = No print

I opened an STL file, generated a GCode of a part and moved it to the SD Card, but when I decided to print it I got the following info: "No info available".

How to fix that? When I opened the part in Cura everything worked all right. It could tell me the time to print the part etc.

    Try to slide the write protect switch of the SD card back and forth a few times. This is a common problem.

    That might work if you can not find files on the card.

    Hi Markus

    The problem is that the file is there, but for some reason the machine says that there is no info available. If I put the card in my computer, I also see the file and can open it in Cura.

    Oh, it should not be so much on the card. Copy all the content on your Computers and try a reformatting of this SD card with FAT32.

    It may also be the file names are too long, and or have too many folders nested within each other.

    If the file name can be selected, then your object should still be printable, even without additional information from print-time, etc.

    Are you sure that you have created UltiGCode?

    You can check it at Machine-Settings under GCode Flavor.

    So now I can think of nothing more, sorry.

     

    Edit:

    Please use File-Names without accents and or special characters, otherwise the machine can not identify some GCode files.

    Again, you gave me the clue to solve the problem. It seems that the machine does not accept accent marks used in the name of the file. Latin languages use lots of accents. In spite of Helicóide I just called the part Helicoide... and problem solved.

    thanks

    @Ultimaker-Team:

    you should NOT use the forum as a manual replace for things like that!

    You should describe this limitation that the filename has to be conform with the rule no special characters at a prominent place in the manual.

    Is Cura Ultimaker a software expecially for ultimaker?

    If so cura should not allow special characters in the filename.

    best regards

    Stefan

    Incidentally, if you upgrade your firmware to the latest release candidate, you will see this has been fixed....

      • 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!
          • Thanks

      • 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.
