Cura not rendering CREO models correctly

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not rendering CREO models correctly

Hello everyone,

For starters i am a first comer when it comes to 3D printing, that said here is my issue.

I have created a 3D model in PTC CREO 5.0 saved it as .x3d imported it to Cura and all the rounded features look "squareish" see attached pictures. Now when i try to load a .stl file CUDA tells me that the object was re scaled tp 10000% and i cannot scale it back due to a fact that i cannot see it :-(. Any input would be appropriated. please see attached Pictures/Screens 

 

Thank You

Welcome to the forum

 

 

I cannot save in x3d in my Creo version but as in most tessellated formats in Creo you probably can, and must, set the chord height.

 

Set it as low as your model accuracy allows and try again.

Also check if you have any options to set export units.

 

Otherwise, try the good old stl format but dont forget to set chord height.
