3MF Import Error


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · 3MF Import Error

Hello, I have started using 3MF files from Solidworks to use with Cura, rather than the STL file format. The issue is that when I drag and drop a 3MF file into Cura, it places the solidworks parts' coordinate system at the (0,0,0) location instead of at the center of the bed. I am not sure how to get the 3MF file to be loaded to the center of the bed just like the stl file does. I have attached pictures for reference. I should note that I already tried changing the 3MF export coordinate system in the SW export settings window but that did nothing.

    Thanks for this, changing it to 0,0 wasn't that much effort, but Ctrl+R is much easier.


    It would be good if there was an option to Ctrl+R (Arrange all models) by default when importing 3MF files and ignore its own origin.
