Stl files are invalid

Recommended Posts

I was trying to put files into cura but every time I put a file in it just says the file is invalid. Does anyone know how to fix this issue. I have tried using different version but it the same.

Can you please attach one of the STL files you are having a problem with to this thread?

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.
