Cura, .gcode model only viewable in Layer view?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura, .gcode model only viewable in Layer view?

HI,

I was using Cura yesterday perfect no problem at all.

I boot Cura today, load up a model file and suddenly I cannot view it in any other view other than "Layer" view.

So I was worried it was just my file, so I grabbed a default "example" file that came with the printer, and exact same thing.

Cura itself has an "example" file which is an octopus, i load that - no problem at all !!?!?!?!?

I dont know whats going on !!

The only difference I can see, is the example file that comes with Cura is an .stl file, and all the other files are .gcode - but I am positive for the last week I have been viewing .gcode files iin normal view not just layer view??

It's the normal behaviour, you can load gcode files but as it's just a bunch of commands the model itself can't be viewed.

Most probably you were opening STL files and not gcode files
