3mf file in Cura: Why is model not displayed?

I sliced an STL and saved it as gcode as usual. I also then saved it as a 3mf project file. But when I open the 3mf in Cura there is no model displayed. There's a message telling me I need to slice it first - but there is no Slicer button. Where am I going wrong please?

    A screenshot or two of what you see, or a link to the project file would be helpful to see what is going on.

    Could it be that you are on the "preview" tab instead of the "prepare" tab?

    The project file works for me. In your screenshot, it does not look like the file has been opened; it looks like Cura was started but opening the project file just did not happen.

     

    Have you tried opening the file via File -> Open... (or the folder icon in the top bar underneath the word "Ultimaker")? You can also try dragging the file from file explorer onto the buildplate in the Cura application window.

    No one with any advice please?

     

    EDIT: Sorry ahoeben, I posted that one-line chaser before seeing your reply. (Suspect I have some problem here in Waterfox.)

     

    Tested again and happy to report it did open the project using File -> Open...

     

    Was then about to try opening with a d-click (or Open with...) from File Explorer. (Also first accepted offer to upgrade from 4.8.0 to 4.9.0.) But very pleased to find that the 3mf does nowopen the project.  😉

    Yes, many thanks, see my edit a few minutes ago!

     

    Not sure if it's just my using the forum incorrectly or what, but we crossed in the post again!

     

    Thanks again for your patience.

      • 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.
