Read /Import AMF files

Posted · Read /Import AMF files

My Freecad (1.17 on Linux) can only produce AWF (additive manufacturing format) and not stl files like on windows. As  I understand it AWF is the 'new' STL format, backward comptible etc). Do I have to install an plugin in CURA  to enable this, or do I have to 'convert' the file?. If conversion is an option how is this done ?. I also tried to find a plugin in freecad to genarate STL but could not  one yet.

Thanks

.AMF is a standard that never took off. As a result, we never got to actually making a plugin to support it in Cura.
