CURA for Ultimaker 3+ Extended makes an unreadable file

Recommended Posts

Did you create an UM3+ Extended printer in Cura? Which version of Cura do you use?

If you use on of the new Cura versions (3.x), you could save your actual project as a .3mf file and attach it to this post so we can have a look.

There is no Ultimaker 3+ extended, I just used your naming without thinking - sorry.

I can't tell what went wrong here. When I load your project, a new printer is created (Ultimaker 3 extended) but the part can not be sliced (see screenshot). I assume something went wrong with the printer creation.


If you don't have other printers defined in Cura, I would suggest to remove the actual version and install Cura 3.4.1 again. Then create a new printer (Ultimaker 3 extended), drag your .stl file (scal it since it is tiny - I guess inch<->cm issue), set the material to ABS (if you really want to print with ABS) and slice again.


Btw. I saw that you also set to print with support with PVA - but the combination ABS/PVA is not supported. I disabled "support" in Cura with your project but the problem still persisted.

    • "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.
