Cura RC3 slicing problem : codec can't encode character

Recommended Posts

Hello,

first print today after several weeks of inactivity, I tried to use the Cura software. I'm working on windows 7 64 bits.

I followed the "noobies" answer I found on the forum (i.e. installed arduino, uploaded marlin) but after the first run wizard tests (all passed), I have this message when I try to print a stl file:

Exception in thread Thread-7:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_RC3\python\lib\threading.py", line 552, in _

_bootstrap_inner

self.run()

File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_RC3\Cura\gui\sliceProgessPanel.py", line 127

, in run

p = subprocess.Popen(self.cmdList[self.fileIdx], stdout=subprocess.PIPE, std

err=subprocess.STDOUT)

File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_RC3\python\lib\subprocess.py", line 679, in

errread, errwrite)

File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_RC3\python\lib\subprocess.py", line 893, in

_execute_child

startupinfo)

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe9' in position 159

1: ordinal not in range(128)

:oops:

Any idea to solve this ?

Thanks
