Ability for Cura to read STL files inside a ZIP folder

Recommended Posts

The basic workflow is to find something fun to print from Thingiverse or other popular 3D model sites and then unzip the download in order to be able to load the file into Cura.

Can you look into the ability to read ZIP files? This would allow users to quickly get at the file they want without having to manually unzip. It would also cut down on file clutter with the zip file, the un zipped folder and all the files you have to track down to delete the download later.

I know MakerSpaces like our library would love this feature in Cura!

    • 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.
