Exporting Oblecs

Recommended Posts

:|Hi!

 

I need help!

 

Sometimes the small things get in the way.

Ijust got a new 3D printer the Anet A8, and it is ready to start printing.

But! Ican't seem to export an object to print.

I have seen the video's, but it's not working for me.

I manage to download an objec such as a Nut for the Hot bed, but when I drag it to the software, I get something different.

Also I need to know if it is an .STL or not. I have read several procedures, but it assumed that I know what I am doing.

Anyway can someone help me.

 

Thanks

Frank G.

You want to drag on an STL file, yes.  Some of them out there are bad/corrupt but 90% of the ones on thingiverse are printable.  Maybe you got very unlucky and got a bad one.  Did it show up at all visually when you dropped it into cura?  Check it out in default view, then xray view, then slice view.  Anything colored red in xray view is a problem with the model.
