I am testing out the Cura software to see if I can edit my 3d objects before I print using my non-Cura 3D printers. The current 3D printers I work with are the Stratsys Objet 30 and using Formlabs 2/3 printer.

1)How can I put a name label on the 3D object itself? I would like the name engraved inside the 3D object for identification purposes.
2)Is there a function in Cura where I can automatically repair the 3D object before sending it to print?
3)Because my printers are not from Cura, is there a way I can save my 3D object as an STL file after I'm done making edits to it?

    Cura is not a 3d modeler, but a slicer for FDM printers. In other words: Cura is not meant to make edits to STL files.

      • 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!

      • 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.
