Recommended Posts

hi i am brand new to 3d printing

i downloaded cura 2.1.2

 

i have windows vista 32bit laptop

when i open a stl file in cura nothing shows up in the image workspace........no grid....no part.....just white space

 

it goes through slicing process and then says save file but there is no object in the workspace....so i cant see what my  part is suppose to look like

Hi

 

i appreciate your input, however im not going to spend hundreds of dollars just to be able to use a free program lol

 

and fyi version 2.1.2 was designed for 32 bit windows so it should work with 32 bit windows correct?

 

guess what my fix was?....very simple...i downloaded slicer....and guess what?.....it worked

 

thank you

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
