Recommended Posts

hi i am brand new to 3d printing

i downloaded cura 2.1.2

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

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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
