Problem With Files Cannot Print Urgent


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem With Files Cannot Print Urgent

Good day all, 

I am very new to this, first time making files. I am using upgraded Cookie Cad to make files  ( My friend does the printing for me, using a Creality CR 10 S Pro, so it is a non network printer as I do not have the printer near me, I have to send the completed files to him on email, someone else made the files before but they are now closed so I need to do it and learn ). I download the files from Cookie Cad. 


I open Ultimaker Cura, select open file, select the stl file / It loads and once it is loaded I then select SLICE. Once that is completed I then go to select Save as File (the tutorial says so) I DO NOT have "Save as File" instead I have " Save to Disk" in the bottom right. In the top left under Files i have "export". I have tried both of these ways 


The save as 3MF fies which cannot be printed and they do not read on the printer. It says " Ignored File"

I assume they must save as gcode?

I need thse cutters on Thursday, and I cannot get them to prin at all. Please let me know what to do thank you all.

    Have you tried clicking the save to disk in the right corner? That should pop up a file dialogue and allow you to select Gcode.


    It does not give me the option. I CLICK save to disk and it just saves  to docUments so I then press the litle arrow under File name by the file type or whatever the option is in the documents window that pops up on the left  and it only has 3MF it so I tried printing it anyway but I got the same result " Ignored Filw'
