cura3.thumb.jpg.4337be92da600ed63dcce901f4b5e0ef.jpgGreetings Ultimake people,

I am having a problem with Cura 3.0.3 where the buildplate is rendering in full black instead of being transparent and graduated as per previous versions or the new scaling graduations listed in the 3.x release notes.

Please refer to attached image.

I have been unsuccessful in trying to find a setting/s within Cura or my graphics drivers to try and recify this - please help!

Cheers,

Hotend

    That is partly my fault. The shader that should draw the grid lines is broken on older GPUs. A fix was made, though it was not included in the 3.0 release.

    You can fix this by replacing C:\Program Files\Cura 3.0\resources\shaders\grid.shader with this file:

    UPDATE:

    Cheers ahoeben,

    The updated shader file works fine and the buildplate grid works perfectly.

    Headsup: Graphics card wasn't a Quadro 6000 but an OLDER Quadro FX 4600, for reference.

    Cheers again!

    Hello Folks,

    I am getting the same black build plate on the OSX cura 3.0.3 version.

    Any Ideas on how I correct this. I am using an older MacPro Desktop

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
