first of all, my apology for my language, because I am from  Belgium.

I have a Creality Ender 3 and I have installed a BT Touch and updated the software for properly working

Now is I choose a new item in Thingiver and  store it in Ultimaker Cura and try to slice it, the program said " Yoy can not change anything because the G-code is properly not correct or not ment to be " So I can not see how long its gone do or I can not change any values !

Can you please help me

Thanks in advance

    You are loading the wrong type of files. G-code files can not be altered. Load a model file instead, like an STL, OBJ or 3MF file.
