Recommended Posts

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

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)

Where does i find the Unicode?

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
