Unable to open .STL file with Cura 4.8.0

Posted · Unable to open .STL file with Cura 4.8.0

Hi Everyone,


I'm fairly new with 3D printing, but learning fast and enjoying in to the max!

Today I ran into a problem when opening a .STL file Cura 4.8.0; the file doesn't open at all.

When opening the configuration logs, see below, I noticed the following code.


ObjectItemButton.qml:81:9: QML Button: Binding loop detected for property "width"


Is anyone familiar with this issue and can it be the reason for the file not opening?

Hope you guys can help me further with this.

    Hi Jappey,

    the STL opens in Cura without any issue, I guess it opend at your Cura also, but it's so tiny that you hardly can see it on the print bed. I suppose it's generated in cm or in inch, whereas Cura uses mm.

    If it was generated in cm, just scale it up to 1000%. If it' in inch, I recommend the "Barbarian Plugin" from Cura marketplace, so it can be converted in mm by just a mouseklick.

    No problems loading the STL in Cura 4.7.1 but it is a tiny tiny tiny object...  Had to scale it to 200% to see what is was. What program did you use to design this part?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
