Object in Cura too large to be selected

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Object in Cura too large to be selected

I've uploaded a large file into cura and it fully loaded, but due to the size of the object is appears massive. This object is so massive it cannot be selected to be scaled down. I had this object in Autodesk Maya and made it as small as I could before exporting it as an OBJ file. Is the a command in cura i can use that would select all objects allowing me to scale this down? please help.

The circled object is what you are looking for. But, if you are doing the modeling, work in millimeters and work to a scale that would allow for you to know what you are dealing with. ?

You can do ctrl+A to select all models on the build plate. Or right-click then Select all models on the pop-up menu.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
