3d printing from QCAD to Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · 3d printing from QCAD to Cura

Hello community,


I have drawings from QCAD that I've attempted to export so that they can be opened in Cura for 3D printing.


Cura is not, however, successfully reading the dimensions of the drawing and producing a faulty 3d image.  


Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance

Hi @Gio26


afaik QCAD is 2D only, no 3D, no STL and therefore nothing for Cura to slice. Maybe you could use FreeCAD or Autodesk Fusion?

      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.
