Inventor Plugin (official thread)

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)

    @eried: Can you please share some info? Installed version of Inventor and Cura? Thanks!

    @mtg01: Could you make a screenshot of the results of the service checker tool and send me your log file? You can send it to me via private message 🙂

    Hello everybody,
    I have used this plugin for several versions of Cura and its result was very good. Now update to Cura Enterprise 4.9.0 and the plugin does not load, in Cura the following error appears.
