Importing multiple different files onto cura

Posted · Importing multiple different files onto cura

I am fairly new to this 3d lark. I cannot seem to get different files to load simultaneously onto the cura slicer so I can slice and print form one place rather than doing several slices and prints. I am sure there is an easy way of doing this. I have tried many times to load files, either just clicking or typing the filename etc but no joy. Please help.

    How do you open files in Cura?

     

    In Cura, there's the File -> Open... menu and a folder icon (top left on the Prepare tab) that will let you open/add files to the build plate. You can also drag and drop models into the Cura window.

     

    If you double-click a model or drop the model on the Cura icon, a new window of Cura will likely open. The next version of Cura will have a preference not to do that.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
