I use Cura to slice the model which I want to print.Now I want to see each single layer in the computer as picture.

Hi,

and welcome to the forums.

Which version of Cura do you use. The new version 2.x or the old version 15.x?

If you want to do this you need to compile the Cura engine for Debug. It's not a "official" feature that we support (and to be honest, not all that interesting).

Hi there,

A not fun option would be to use layer view and then Print Screen each layer by hand.

But maybe that is obvious and you were hoping to avoid that.

Anyway, hope this helps. :)

Ahhh... nice idea - could it be that you try to get slices out for something like a cardboard stack? So the pictures to be used to laser or jigsaw them out?

Another thought: I've never used Pronterface, but maybe it has the capability?

People seem to use it to look in detail at the layer by layer tool paths, so I thought maybe it might.

just a thought.

I think original poster just wanted "layer view" and hadn't found it yet.
