I updated from Cura four dot somethin somethin to five dot two dot one somethin somethin.


Now Cura does not recognize 3mf files. 3mf is not listed among recognized file types within the Open Files dialog box. When I force Cura to open a 3mf file, it gacks up the message "Invalid File: Cannot open files of file type of" (sic).


WTF, boys?

    What operating system do you use? Did you download Cura from the Ultimaker website, or do you use something from a package manager/ If the latter, it could be that that package is missing a dependency or two.


    We can further diagnose the issue if you post a link to the Cura.log file, which can be found via Help -> Show configuration folder.

    Thanks for checking back.


    For no obvious reason, nor any effort on my part, my install of Cura now imports 3mf files with zero issues.


    Go figure.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
