Problem importing 3dmf from Fusion 360

Posted · Problem importing 3dmf from Fusion 360



Question: When I've exported from Fusion 360 as 3DMF the file comes in off the left front corner in Cura. Often extending below the bed. Any tips on getting Fusion's 3DMF files to play nice with Cura. I'm sticking with STL for now. STLs come in dead center and on top of the bed. 3DMF sometimes comes in below bed.


I'll have double check. but I think when I did print the 3dmf, the size was not correct either.

    Are you using the Tools->Make->3D Print function to send the design directly to Cura?


    I get the model in the front left corner most of the time also, but it is a simple click on the model and move it into position. If there are multiple bodies, I have to group them in Cura before moving them.


    It would be nice if it automatically positioned in the center if the build plate, but I guess I never thought too much about having to move it manually since I was ecstatic about Fusion being able to send it directly without having to Export.

    I Right click object: Export as mesh and select 3dmf. I manually opening it in Cura. I realize the 0,0,0 origin in Fustion is most likely the center of your model. And Cura considers 0,0 as the left front corner.


    It would be nice if Cura had an option to import and center a 3dmf.  STLs come in fine.
