Quite an elaborate error message! So, I deleted the PlugInFolder under MyName\AppData\Roaming\cura\3.2\plugins and installed your Plugin again. No import - file not found. Same error.  

Hello,   the plugin is working now, i can import *.ipt-files directly. Yippie!   Cheers dxp

@thopiekar, Seems to be working again with Cura 3.3.1 and plugin 0.15. Using Inventor 2017 R4.3

I really liked this plugin for the early versions of Cura! When I needed to make changes to a model, I could change the .ipt file, and just import that same file into cura. Instead, with Cura 4.4, I now need to make changes, export an STL file, and then import that file into Cura. It's an extra step, and it requires that I remember whether the STL files are up to the same revision as the Inventor part files, which isn't always the case.


Is there a plan to update this plugin to work with Cura 4.4?

    Hey! The plugin has been updated for Cura 4.4+ and a bug has been fixed.

    If the document (part, assembly or drawing) is already opened in Inventor, the document won't be closed anymore.

    There was already a check for it before, which was (it seems) not fully tested by me. Therefore, the check gave wrong info and leaded to this issue.

    The plugin does not work for me for .ipt files created with Inventor 2020. My version of Cura is 4.6. The error message is "invalid file".


    Yeah I think is better just to forget the plugin. Save as STL and in the "file / open" in Cura the latest STL saved in inventor is on the combobox list (so you can streamline the import step)
