Cannot open file to read

Post by NelsonMe »

Hello
Something wrong with the file I want to print or there is a problem with the software, I don't know. I got an error code "Cannot open file to read" while trying to print this 3d model.
I've done some basic troubleshooting stuff I read on Simplify 3D forum and it didn't help. The file opens in Blender normally. What steps can I take to solve this problem?

Some files are saved in inches an need to be scaled X 25.4 to scale into millimeters

This model is 426.11 X 496.5 X 294.8 scaled to millimeters = 108.23 X 126.11 X 74.88mm

Print time about 18 hours

I found the same issue. The original image was scaled way to big for most 3D printers (I think @LePaul has access to one that would print it).
