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

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
