Hi Everyone

For the first time tonight, I am receiving this error whilst trying to load a model into Cura. It`s a large .stl file.

cure window error

Is there anything I can do to conquer this?

Is there are maximum stl file size that cura accepts?

Maybe I need more RAM lol

    Hey guys, the .STL was sent to me by somebody else...it is 190Mb :eek: !

    I have emailed asking to send me a step file so I can convert to .STL myself.

    My laptop runs CREO, KEYSHOT and CURA pretty well... its a dell XPS 17 with dedicated graphics and 8GB RAM ( I sinstalled 16GB, but it didn't like it ) lol.

    Okay, 190 MB is huge. I guess that's the problem here ;)

    It's definetly not a hardware issue, but I doubt Cura even uses hardware acceleration (or does it?)

     

    It does, but, the implementation is not perfect. Which is why it crashes at a certain amount of polygons.

    I have received the step file of the part, so I will try again when I am back home later and see if a smaller .stl does the trick.

      • 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.
