3D Builder: Error 0x80004005

I get this error code about 1 in 10 times when saving 3D models in MS 3D Builder (.3mf file format). message reads "Couldn't export that. Please try again. Error code: 0x80004005". Trying aga yeild the same result. I can Save As .stl, or .obj successfully, but not always .3mf. This can be very frustrating when working on complex models over a number of days, when despite frequent back-ups, work can be lost.

Note that the problem does occur with any consistency - it's about 1 in 10, but once it has happened for a particular file it sticks. Oh, and it also 'overwrites' the previous file of the same name - making the new one 0bytes before declaring it can't be saved.

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks AnnieGeek. I've done Method 1, so we'll see if that works. Can't force recreate the problem as it happens intermittently, but we'll see if that fixes it.

I get this same error trying to open a 3MF file I created with 3D Builder. I have included a sample file. I built this with 3D Builder a while ago as a test print file. I can open it with Cura, then save it as an STL file, then inport the STL into 3D Builder, but then the objects are all one and cannot be manipulated.

Drag and drop your 3mf into Cura. Then after it loads it may not look quite right, but the pieces will be there. Then export it as a 3mf using the menus in Cura. Then open it in 3d builder again and run a repair on it if the dialogue comes up. Then wait a long time and do a fresh save under a new name when it is done.

If the model is still open in 3d builder then you can save it as an object file and then reload it from the object file and then save it as 3mf under a new name and keep working on it.

You can avoid 3dbuilder shitting the bed as often by copy and pasting objects or small groups of objects that you want to work on into a new scene then doing your work there and when done copy and pasting it back into the full scene to replace the part that you copied to modify.
