Cura 2.5 not showing "Material View"

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 2.5 not showing "Material View"

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.

What about a graphic card that supports OpenGL 4.1 but don't have much RAM to display the new layerview properly (big object)?

Any chance to have the possibility to switch to the "normal" layerview in the préférences with CURA 2.6 ?

That is already possible, there's a preference for forcing "layer view compatibility mode".
