.obj changing

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I've been using slic3r for a while and decided to pick up Cura as that was what my printer was originally intended to use. However I still like slic3r but I now can no longer use it as Cura immediately changes the .obj files to cura.model.obj files. I even tried uninstalling Cura and deleting Cura folders in .appdata yet they are still changed. Any advice?

I don't know the official answer, but just from general computer experience: if this is on a Windows computer, could it be a filetype association issue? Try rightclicking on the obj file and "open with...", and then chose your preferred slicer. Or else try changing the filetype associations. Google for how to do this, as the method may differ in every Windows-version and language, especially on newer Windows 8...10.
