The output of Cura 4.1 has a File Extension of .gz, unrecognizable by my Ender 3. When I rename te File removing the .gz, the Printer says "Awaiting User". What do I do?

I have tried to choose an example ".gcode.gz", but, the effort is rejected.

    The .gz file is a compressed (zipped) gcode file that your printer does not support.

     

    If you slice a file and then go to the file menu and select the “save as” option, you should be able to select gcode instead of compressed gcode. I think if you do that once, Cura should remember your choice.

    Well, I am still confused. The steps I take are these.

     

    1, open Cura 4.1

    2. Open my Open my .stl File. I have made sure I have only 1 object on the Cura display. I have renamed this .stl object. Is this a problem?

    3. I preform the slice. I produce an output, but the Filename still has the .gz extension. 

    4. I have created a ‘Gcode’.group on my laptop as well as the micro-sad file that receives the Cura Output.

     

    I seem to be missing a step or a Needed Cura modification. I certainly appreciate your time helping me with this problem.

     

    ‘By the way, my next endeavor is to Make my Ender-3  recognizable by my WIFI. Oh, boy.

    I do think the Problems are my lack of understanding the new Cura 4.1. The File is now saved as a Gcode File and recognized by the Ender 3. But,

     

    1. The Bed is not heating and the Z direction is ignored of the Extruder does not work. I know this is something I am NOT doing with Cura 4.1 because I just tried a CURA 4.0 File that works Fine.

    One further input. On my Ender 3, How can I control the Heat Level of Both the Bed and Extruder. Something I have modified is messing the Heat.

    This is usually defined within your material settings: ->Preferences ->Materials, choose your Material and then right hand ->Print settings.

     

    In addition you can modify the temps in your profile. Open custom mode and search for temp or look into section Materials
