Cura 3.1 - .3MF positioning data lost on import?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm trying to load a .3mf file and use per-group settings to print a file.

 

  • In Slic3r, there's an option where an pops up that says, "This file contains several objects positioned at multiple heights. Instead of considering them as multiple objects, should I consider this file as a single object having multiple parts?"
  • In Simplify3D, I can use 'Separate Connected Surfaces' on a 3mf or an stl file and achieve the same results.
  • Is this possible in Cura? Currently, when I load the STL, I am unable to split the object into parts, and when I load the 3MF, it loads all the separate parts but lays them out all flat on the bed.
  • This is what I'm trying to do: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2512390. I don't have the 3MF version uploaded there, but I used Meshmixer to separate the part into shells and exported that as a 3MF.

Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    • "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.
