Large scale models disappear on Cura screen!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Large scale models disappear on Cura screen!

Pretty new to Cura, have preferences set to drop to build plate, scale large & small models. Yet when I load a mm STL. from sketchup the model is so large I have to use select all to get the scale model routine. The build plate is outside of my view and I seem not to be able to get it centered in the screen. Time consuming is having to save the re scaled model and the restarting Cura 2.3 to get it centered on my screen.

danke! merci! RJ

When saving as STL-file, do you have options for setting the units? If they would be set to mm now (and appear as meters), then you might try setting the units to meters for exporting?

Otherwise you could try loading the STL-file in another STL-repair program (I don't know the names), verify it there, and save again?

SketchUp is known for creating bad STL-files for 3D-printing. It was designed for creating visual 3D stuff only (houses etc.), no watertight 3D models.
