Cura 3.3.1 on Mac - unable to open project file

Recommended Posts

You open projects with the same File -> Open... command you use for opening meshes.


When you open a project, Cura asks if you want to open it as (a collection of) models, or as a project.


Note there’s a preference in General preferences that may suppress the aforementioned question.

Thank you.  I tried that and found  my project files were greyed-out in the list, implying they weren't in a supported format.  When I looked closely I found they had not been given the .3mf extension!  I have to manually put the .3mf extension at the end of the project files I save, then it works.


At least I can save and open projects now so 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.
