Reloading/ Updating models from Digital Factory projects

Recommended Posts

Posted · Reloading/ Updating models from Digital Factory projects


I'm finding a bit of an unmet need with Cura and Digital Factory. When I upload multipart prints to digital factory, the association to the stl/ 3mf file on my computer is broken, meaning that I cannot overwrite the file to prompt Cura to refresh the model. I'd like to be able to reload the file, if not through a dialog in cura/ DF, then by finding where the file is downloaded from DF onto my computer to display it and replacing it there.


Reason I'm doing this is my application requires me to print parts in similar arrays and quantities- when a part goes through a revision or a new, similar part is needed, I would want to open a project and set up a build plate of parts in the same locations, with the same settings and overrides without having to manually place all the parts and re-do the overrides.
