Latest Cura... after gcoding, cant see the bottom layers ?

Recommended Posts

When i insert a model into the latest version of Cura and gcode it. After it is gcoded, i can go up and down to see the gcode print paths... but whats weird is, when i move near the top layers of each model, Cura wont show the lower layers ?

so it looks like i have print layers floating in fresh air.

I would love to show some screen shots but seeminlgy this is the only forum on the internet with attachments disabled ?

has anyone else had this problem ?

It's a feature, not a bug!

I prefer it this way. It lets you see the model better. If you want to see the bottom layers you scroll the layer scrollbar to the bottom.

The feature I really miss is being able to click one layer at a time. When you have over 200 layers it's very difficult to get to a particular layer to see what's going on. I'd like to see a keyboard shortcut for going up and down one layer at a time.

Or buttons that only appear when the mouse hovers over them (to make the interface clean - like facebook does all over the place). An up arrow triangle and a down arrow triangle just like normal scroll bars.

But anytime I can do something with the keyboard instead of the mouse is a win.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
