New 3v3ke question on copying filess

when I copy a file from the creality site download it put it on the use drive plug it into the unit but the printer does not see it only the sample tug boat. What am I doing wrong?

Steve, did you slice it and put the .gcode file on your drive? The printer will not see the .stl file, it needs the sliced gcode to print.

found tha out last night. Question when using the ke I load a stl file and when I preview it it starts to convert to gcode only it takes hours is there a faster way to do it

I never tried to slice it is that whats wrong??? ok first thing I do load program then pick the file I want goes to prepare the preview and it starts to run. WHAT am I doing wrong???
