This should be the robot before slicing = not OK

This is the slice code = OK, if you turn on model view, you still can't see the model

    This indeed is a video card driver issue. I have 1 machine that does the same thing, and tried everything and the only thing that works is disabling an optimization which speeds up rendering 20 fold.

    Same prob here.

    Only can I see the model when I use the third tab "Show model borders" witch give me a mesh model look.

    Where can we change the aptimization speed rendering?

    You'll have to edit the preview.py file, search for 9999 and add a few extra 9 behind that.

    Thx 4 your great work Daid!

    have taken a look to preview3d.py but don't find a line with 9999.

    found finally how to do a search inside a file...

    inside the explorer find you can specify more tags like (dutch):" *.py inhoud: 9" witch give all the py files with 9 in the text.

    Result: no file's matching in the directory of Cura_12.11

    Can you help me out of this?

    Greetz

    The windows search thing doesn't work at all. It only searches in microsoft file formats.

    Hi. I'm having same problems in Win 64bit found the the file preview3d.py C:/Program Files(x86)/Cura_12.11/gui but no line of code with 9999 in it, checked several times, could you perhaps put it into context with preceding lines or even a screen shot. I'm on the cusp of buying a machine but want to do some tests first.Thanks

    You are right. Should have used findstr. Will edit my previous post.

    Still, didn 't found the parameter.

    Inside the cura/GUI map type in the powershell

    Or start run powershell

    Cd program files (x86) cura12.11 cura gui

    Findstr 999 *.py

    My bad, it's in opengl.py, "batchSize = 999" set that to 99999

    I have never gotten the preview window in Cura to work on any newer windows machines - it's just blank. I have an old machine that runs XT and it works fine on that, but not on my new PC.

    My Graphics card is GeForce GT 530 and i'm running windows 7 64bit.

    Make sure DirectX and proper video card drivers are installed.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-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.
