Missing side menu "object creation"


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Missing side menu "object creation"



I try to find the "object create" side bar menu but for some reason it is missing.




I just looking for this menu to show but can't managed to find how to add it - see the picture in the bottom. Is it a plugin or just missing some settings to add in the preferences?





I use Windows 11 22H2 and CURA ver is 5.2.1


Here you are the CURA log too:

    I think you're missing a plugin. I don't know which one. But "object creation" isn't a default thing that Cura offers.

    Hey @SEAL_BG,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    I haven't seen that specific button before, so @nallath is correct, it must be from  one of the plug-ins in the Marketplace. 
    I checked your logs and you seem to have a significant number of plug-ins installed. I'm not sure which one you are missing. 

    If you click on the Marketplace and then on the gear in the top right corner you can see which plug-ins need an update or which ones are disabled. You can check there which plugin might be missing. 

    Hope this helps!

    To add to what @MariMakes said, it could be that one of the plugins you used before has (still) not been updated for Cura 5 and newer, and is not available in the Marketplace for those versions.

    Hi all,


    thank you for the fast answer! Ill will check for updates of the plugins but I think this is not he problem because I already installed the last versions.




    Thank you for the hints. It's not the only one button missing. The whole bar was not shown and I am not sure why this vase look like icons are not showing at all... and that's why I install all this plugins whit hope, one to repair the problem but for now I am not finding the solution for this problem. 


    Thank you all for help. It is not so urgent or important for now. I still use Blender and the new found CAD plugin that extend the ability for object creation.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
