Cura 2.5 not showing "Material View"

Recommended Posts

We have an Ultimaker 3 und I use Cura 2.5 to slice the models.

On my local Laptop, I have a 3D-powered Machine with nvidia-open-gl-card.

There I can use this view with Material Color:

On another Laptop, where is just CPU-Graphics from Intel inside, this view is not offered.

The Drop-Down-Menue to switch between “Material Color” and “Line Type” is not available.

Is this just available with 3D Graphics card?

All Tests with Windows 7 64bit Professional and Enterprise.

The new layerview needs a GPU that supports OpenGl 4.1. If your GPU does not support that, Cura falls back to the old layerview.

Note that it is not so much nVidia vs Intel, but new vs old GPU/driver. The Intel GPU in my current laptop supports the new layerview just fine.

    • "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.
