Posted · Cura don´t Slice to Gcode

Hi everybody,

I have an problem with Cura R4, when i start to slice it shows the following error on the Command Window :

F:\extruder_clamp_Centre1.stl 0

Exception in thread Thread-3:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "F:\Cura_RC4\python\lib\threading.py", line 552, in __bootstrap_inner

self.run()

File "F:\Cura_RC4\Cura\gui\sliceProgessPanel.py", line 127, in run

File "F:\Cura_RC4\python\lib\subprocess.py", line 893, in _execute_child

startupinfo)

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xf6' in position 1410: ordinal not in range(128)

The file is an STL from Thingiverse "http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25490" - "extruder_clamp_Centre1.stl"

Can me help some one?

    This is a bug with none ascii characters in filenames. It's been fixed for the next version.

    Usually it's Russian characters, or characters with accents that cause this. It doesn't have to be in the filename, can also be in the path.

    (It's actually a bug in the windows python version, and it only happens for windows, so it took me a bit of time to track down)

    I think I know where it goes wrong. Could you try removing the {filename} tag from the start code to see if that solves it? I thought I tested that... but looks like it is causing problems with none-acsii chars.
