Posted · Cura RC3 slicing problem : codec can't encode character

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

    Any chance you're using none-ascii values in filenames/paths? Rusian or characters with accents for example.

    Bingo, thanks. Works now, just have to adjust parmaeters to avoid the noze bringing all the plastics during the movement ... Let's search on the forum ...

    Really nice software, wonderful job. Thanks again.
