I found a image on google to test and made it an stl file. I applied it to cura and I don't know how to resize the image. Also, it's multi colored so how do I make it one color so it can print the whole image. I have a Labists sx1 mini 3d printer.

Thank you

    Welcome to the world of Cura 🙂

    An STL-file does not contain color information at all (AFAIK). I think you are referring to the color scheme of the preview stage?

    Because you're new to this: there's an (online) manual for Cura, so here are two links to start with:

    You are correct that STL files do not contain color and other information. This is why the industry standard is to move to 3MF files. But I only print STLs as I find that while CURA will print 3MF files there can be issues, such as just loading and aligning items on the print bed, as well as additional print times which is a bit strange.
