Ability for Cura to read STL files inside a ZIP folder

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ability for Cura to read STL files inside a ZIP folder

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!

This is actually a rather hard issue to solve. I don't think we're going to do this anytime soon.
