Posted · Stl files are invalid

I don’t have the files with me right now but I got them from shape ways and thingy verse they stl.zip files I am a noob at this so I don’t know if that means it won’t work. But one of the files of thing verse was stl.zip but I managed to get it to work I don’t know how.

    When you download files from Thingiverse, you get the whole content and this content is packed into a ZIP file. You have to unpack this ZIP file to get the STLs inside. Then you can load the *.stl file into Cura.


    I guess you have tried to import the .zip file directly, which doesn't work.
