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?
