I recently updated my Creality Sonic Pad to v1. (June 28, 2023 release) and since I applied that update, I've been consistently receiving the error when attempting to print any G-code file:

Error Message:
Unable to parse move 'G1 X251.931 Y187.6.324 E35.93675'

(The coordinates in the error message above change based on the model I'm attempting to print, I've just added these for reference.)

The printer just freezes in place after completing line two and does not advance, then briefly throws this error on the screen. (I had to sit and watch it because the error only appears on screen for about 5 seconds.)

It doesn't matter what model or slicer (Cura or Creality Slicer) I use to create the file, I still get the message. I also receive the message on any files that I successfully printed before the update and have tried to re-print as a test.

For reference, I'm running:

  • Printer: Creality Ender V3 Max Neo
  • Slicers: Ultimaker Cura 5.4.0 and Creality Slicer 4.8.2
  • macOS Monterey 12.3
  • Models transferred via USB drive and Moonraker.

Any ideas on how to get past this error?

I have had this problem ever since I have had the sonic pad, I found that I just go straight back to print & start print again , it just restarts where it stopped.


Not a fix, but a workaround for anyone else experiencing this issue. I was able to get past it by changing my upload format from "G-code" to "UFP with Thumbnail" in my Cura Moonraker settings. After this change I have been able to print with no problems and I have not gone back and attempted to transfer straight gcode files. (Because I like the thumbnail previews showing on the Sonic Pad. 😎)

You can get to this screen in Cura by clicking the top menu:
Settings > Printer > Manage Printers...

On the "Preferences" dialog click:
Printers > Preset Printers > Your printer's name > Connect Moonraker > Upload
